Jimmy Carter Says Trump is an Illegitimate President: ‘He Didn’t Actually Win the Election’

H/T Mediaite.

This is rich coming from the second worst president in American history.

Former President Jimmy Carter said he believes President Donald Trump’selection was illegitimate and “he didn’t actually win the election in 2016.”

Carter was speaking at at a Carter Center conference on human rights in Virginia with author Jon Meacham when he made the remarks. (First reported by USA Today’s Susan Page.)

“I think the interference, though not yet quantified, should be fully investigated and would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016, he lost the election,” Carter said.

“He was put into office because the Russians interfered,” he said. Carter was then asked if that meant he believed Trump was illegitimate.

“Based on what I said, which I can’t retract,” Carter responded, prompting laughter from the audience.

Carter has spoken with Trump in the past and attended Trump’s inauguration. Earlier this year, Carter says he offered Trump advice on dealing with China after Trump called him to talk about the country.

Schumer Once Blamed Trump For Making Up Border Crisis, Now Blames Him For Pic of Dead Migrants

H/T Western Journal.

The blame for these two illegals lays at the door of the DemocRats for not helping fix our immigration laws.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer used to believe that the border crisis was a fabrication from the Trump administration. Now, he’s blaming the president for the drowning of a migrant man and his daughter in the Rio Grande.

Confused by such a dramatic reversal? So am I.

Just months ago, Schumer berated the president from the Senate floor for using “the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration.”

So what is the Senate minority leader saying now that disturbing pictures of the drowning have surfaced?

“We’ve got to change our policies,” Schumer said, according to TheBlaze.

“So, president Trump, if you want to know the real reason there’s chaos at the border, look in the mirror.

“Mr. President, you are president of the United States,” Schumer said. “You are head of the executive branch. You control what’s happening at the border. And much of what’s happening at the border, president Trump, stems from the chaos and mismanagement in your administration.”

Schumer places no blame on Congress, of course. No concession that the legislative branch has treated border security as a minor issue.

But the president “manufacture[d] a crisis”?

As the article from TheBlaze continues, “the immigration policy origins of the current asylum-driven crisis are similar to the origins of the crisis that the U.S. experienced five years ago during the summer of 2014 during which then-President Obama warned Central American about the danger of making journey to the U.S. in order to claim asylum: ‘Do not send your children to the borders. If they do make it, they’ll get sent back; more importantly, they might not make it.’”

Obama’s quote may be making the rounds this week, as it should be.

Schumer’s comments may not receive the same attention.

“President Trump, I want you to look at this photo,” Schumer said, according to The Hill.

“These are not drug dealers, or vagrants, or criminals. They are people simply fleeing a horrible situation in their home country for a better life,” Schumer said.

But there wasn’t a border crisis before. It was manufactured. Now, it’s very real and must be acted upon with the gravity that it deserves.

The fact is that the current immigration rules we’re playing under were established during the Obama administration. If the Democrats have a problem with them, their quarrel is not with Trump.

Veterans Furious when Maryland County Replaces POW Flag

H/T Godfather Politics.

The moron that ran up the gay pride flag in place of the POW flag needs to be horsewhipped.

This was a slap in the face of every veteran.

U.S. Veterans in Montgomery County, Maryland, were furious when the county government replaced its POW flag with the gay pride flag outside the county veteran’s park.

Another left-wing governmental body is bowing to the radical, left-wing gay lobby and disrespecting our troops in the process.

The Montgomery County Council’s first gay member, Evan Glass, celebrated the raising of the gay pride flag Monday morning at Veterans Memorial Plaza in Rockville, Maryland, according to NBC 4.

You read that right. The county’s gay council member decided that flying the gay pride flag outside the city’s veteran’s park was better than flying the POW flag!

It didn’t take long before the local veterans rose up in anger. None of them were all that upset that the officials wanted to raise the radical gay flag, mind you, but there were furious that a veretan flag was taken down outside a veteran’s park in order to raise the gay flag.

Naturally, and with good reason, the veterans felt like they were getting disrespected in favor of the radical gay agenda.

And they are 100 percent right, too.

Vietnam veteran John “Bill” Williams spoke out at the slight.

“When I was in Vietnam, I was there six days before two guys were missing in action, and they still haven’t found their bodies,” Williams said. And this is how the country treats him.

“I wasn’t happy about it at all because the park is supposed to be a veterans park,” Williams added. “People died. Now they took it down and put another flag up.”

The gay politician quickly began backtracking as soon as the backlash hit.

Councilman Glass claimed that the flag pole was the real problem. You see, it was only set up for one flag. So, naturally the veterans had to take a back seat for his gay agenda.

Glass promised to add another set of rigging to the pole so that two flags could be flown.

Whatever.

The fact that Glass felt that his radical agenda was more important than our veterans is all we need to know about him.

 

Mitt Romney, On Track to Being Worse than John McCain

H/T Godfather Politics.

Mittens Romney is just John McCain with Mormon magic underwear.

In the last few years before he died, Sen. John McCain became a net negative for the country, acting like a petulant child and torpedoing the people’s agenda just because he was mad. But thus far, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney in on track to being worse than McCain as he clearly seeks to be the “new” voice of petulance in the upper chamber.

In his few short months in the U.S. Senate, Romney has already racked up a record more traitorous to the conservative cause than McCain did in 40 years.

For instance, Romney’s latest calumny is to side with the one man in Congress that literally nobody is backing: lunatic Trump hater Justin Amash.

Amash, a “Republican” from Michigan, looks like is on his last term in Congress as his polling numbers back home have cratered due to his absurd anti-Trump pronouncements.

Amash is about the only elected Republican in the country that is agitating for a Trump impeachment. He’s not just in favor of it, he is nearly as wild-eyed and rabid about it as the worst Democrat in the House.

And then there is our pal, Mitt Romney, cozying up to this loser, calling him “courageous,” and refusing to support Trump’s 2020 reelection.

Why would Romney do such an idiotic thing?

Romney himself has been a constant thorn in the president and the party’s side. Recently, for instance, he was needlessly attacking the president by accepting the left’s Russia conspiracy lies and using the left’s argument to attack the president.

“I am also appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia — including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted to inform American law enforcement,” Romney said last Friday.

Former Governor Mike Huckabee took a swipe at Romney shortly after the Sen. made the statement.

“Know what makes me sick, Mitt?” Huckabee Tweeted. “Not how disingenuous you were to take @realDonaldTrump $$ and then 4 yrs later jealously trash him & then love him again when you begged to be Sec of State, but makes me sick that you got GOP nomination and could have been @POTUS.”

38.7K people are talking about this

But, let’s remind ourselves who Romney is. He was a liberal Republican who only won a single term as the Governor of left-wing Massachusetts. He worked against the Second Amendment and supported abortion after he was against it. He also helped create Obamacare, a disastrous policy that is hurting the country to this very day (the same policy his pal McCain made sure we were stuck with via one of his last, black-hearted votes before he died).

Romney also ran for office about 30 times since then and lost every single time (well, OK, only 4, but still). He ran for U.S. Senate in Mass. and lost. He finally won a single term as Mass. gov, but didn’t have the support to gain a second term. Then, he ran for president two times and lost and once unofficially and again didn’t make the finish line.

Then, in 2018, he packed up his millions, headed to Utah, and bought himself a U.S. Senate seat.

This is the guy parading around as the voice of the party!

So, what has he been doing in the Senate? Well, he’s been fighting the important battle to put an end to that evil of all evils… vaping.

Yeah. There’s an important priority.

New leaders installed at top immigration agencies amid questions over DHS secretary’s future

H/T Fox News.

Acting Secretary KevinMcAleenan should not have a future at DHS.

The Trump administration named new leaders Thursday to top immigration agencies amid a deepening crisis at the border — and swirling speculation over the future of the Homeland Security secretary who oversees it all after he was accused of leaking a highly sensitive operation.

Homeland Security Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan on Thursday announced that Mark Morgan, who was serving as the acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, would be shifted over to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to replace former Commissioner John Sanders, who abruptly resigned from his post this week. ICE Deputy Director Matthew Albence was tapped to replace Morgan at that agency.

But bigger questions now surround McAleenan himself.

Two senior administration officials told Fox News that high-level discussions were underway with top administration and White House officials regarding McAleenan’s future in light of the accusations against him — which the secretary strongly denies. The officials said there is uncertainty as to how much longer the secretary could remain in his post.

A White House official declined to comment on these claims when asked by Fox News.

McAleenan had come under fire after officials and other sources publicly, and privately, accused him of leaking details of planned ICE deportation raids. The report in question, which was published by Washington Post immigration reporter Nick Miroff, said the raids would take place before dawn in major cities.

A source familiar with the matter told Fox News that McAleenan traveled on a government plane to the border with Miroff less than 24 hours before the story was published. The source also said that when the raids were in a planning phase, McAleenan was opposed and even ordered Morgan to call off the operation — though Trump told him to proceed. The president, though, put the operation on hold after the leak amid talks with Congress.

One senior administration official told Fox News on Thursday that after the alleged leak, “He’s lost the confidence and trust of both the workforce and his superiors, with no viable path to proceed with any confidence and credibility.”

The official lamented the state of morale at the department, saying: “DHS has devolved into chaos and employee morale is abysmal.”

Another senior administration official also told Fox News Thursday that McAleenan has “completely lost his credibility leading the Department.”

“I can’t imagine the White House has an interest in keeping him in place much longer when they know he opposes most of their immigration policies,” the official said.

McAleenan, though, has adamantly denied the leak claims. In an interview with Brian Kilmeade on Fox News Radio, he said: “Categorically, I did not and would not leak details of a law enforcement operation.”

Meanwhile, one of the officials told Fox News that McAleenan spent several days in Guatemala this week for multilateral meetings with Central American allies, while other top administration officials negotiated on Capitol Hill for additional funding for the agencies as part of a major piece of legislation — which has not yet cleared Congress.

The official told Fox News that “support for a spending package vital to the department coalesced, was debated, and voted on in his absence.” That official also said that McAleenan has been “cut out of the process.”

Another administration official noted that McAleenan is slated to host a press conference on Thursday afternoon on the supplemental spending bill. “It’s interesting that he is standing alone. This is him trying to save his job, and taking a victory lap on the supplemental bill when he has been absent for the last few days.”

Seriously? Schumer Wants Trump Investigated Over $20 Bill

H/T Western Journal.

The Delusional DemocRats will use any excuse they can to investigate President Trump.

Who really gives a Damn if Harriet Tubman gets on the twenty dollar bill.

Proving once again that Democrats in Congress will use virtually any excuse to hinder, investigate, or otherwise obstruct President Donald Trump’s administration, it now appears that Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has made a federal production out of delayed plans to update the $20 bill.

For many years there has been discussion about replacing the face of slave-owning former President Andrew Jackson on the common currency note with that of a hero of the anti-slavery abolition movement, Harriet Tubman, a process that was purported to officially be launched in 2016 by then-Obama administration Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, according to The Hill.

But that plan was recently placed on hold by Trump administration Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin until at least 2028, primarily over concerns about potential counterfeiting issues, as reported by Newsmax.

But The Hill has now reported that Schumer had apparently rejected the reason offered up by Mnuchin and demanded the Treasury Department’s inspector general conduct a full investigation of the decision to delay the change. It appears that demand will be honored.

Specifically, Schumer wanted to know if there was any White House involvement in the delay to replace Jackson with Tubman, no doubt an insinuation of racial motives by the president and his administration who are routinely accused — without evidence — of being bigoted and hateful racists.

Acting Treasury IG Rich Delmar wrote in a June 21 letter to Schumer that the minority leader’s request would be incorporated into an audit and review of the process that was already planned and underway. That process would look into the Treasury’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing to ensure that “security features,” the “counterfeit deterrence program” and other requirements for creating new currency notes were properly implemented.

Delmar noted that his team would “interview the stakeholders involved” in the process, including the BEP, Treasury officials, the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors, the Board’s Currency Technology Office, and the U.S. Secret Service.

“I believe this approach will efficiently address the concerns expressed in your request,” Delmar wrote. “It will specifically include review of the process with respect to the $20 bill.”

“If, in the course of our audit work, we discover indications of employee misconduct or other matters that warrant a referral to our Office of Investigations, we will do so expeditiously,” he added.

Delmar concluded by noting that he anticipated it would take roughly 10 months to complete the audit and review and put together a final report, and that he would keep Schumer apprised of the progress of the review.

Schumer, who had previously complained that the delayed change of the $20 bill hadn’t been “credibly explained” by Trump administration officials, was reportedly “pleased” on Monday by the response he had received from the Treasury IG.

“There are no women, there are no people of color on our paper currency today, even though they make up a significant majority of our population, and the previous administration’s plan to put New Yorker Harriet Tubman, on the $20 note was a long overdue way to recognize that disparity, and rectify it,” Schumer said.

At a glance, it would appear that the move to replace Jackson with Tubman on the $20 bill is little more than a cosmetic change, but in reality, there is a lot that goes into making even minor adjustments to existing bills, let alone wholesale changes of the design.

Schumer and Democrats, however, don’t reside in a realistic world, and are instead consumed by an “Orange Man bad” mentality that reflexively ascribes the worst possible motivations to every single thing done or not done by the Trump administration.

The insinuation that there is some racial motivation behind the delay to place the abolitionist Tubman on the $20 bill is just one small example of that mindset, and it is nothing short of ridiculous that Schumer would force the Treasury IG to waste time and resources investigating for evidence of such.

Hopefully, the IG’s review of the process will be quickly completed and the report will make it clear that the only reason for the delay is the already announced counterfeiting and security concerns that are critical to maintaining the “full faith and credit” that virtually the entire globe has placed in U.S. currency.

Brighton, MA – Orthodox Rabbi Says Guns, Not Prayers Will Protect Shuls, Encourages Congregation To Arm

H/T Vos Iz Neias.

Rabbi Dan Rodkin of Shaloh House understands that it takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun.

Rabbi Dan Rodkin

Brighton, MA –  A rabbi here has asked congregants to consider bringing guns to religious services as a form of protection in response to recent shootings at synagogues across the country.

Rabbi Dan Rodkin of Shaloh House in Brighton, a Boston neighborhood with a large number of Russian-speaking Jews, told  the public radio station WBUR that the rise in hate crimes across the country and the loss of life at the Chabad at Poway and the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh influenced his thinking.

Rodkin fears that increased safety measures implemented at Shaloh House — they include security cameras, reinforced glass windows and panic buttons — are no longer sufficient protection. The rabbi said the actions of an off-duty officer at the Poway Chabad center, where one woman was murdered, may have prevented further casualties.

“I know it sounds horrible, but I think it’s a very logical approach for the situation we’re in,” he said in an interview on the WBUR “Morning Edition” program. “I don’t want people to have guns. But I think to protect our families, it’s a necessity now.”

“We can’t think, ‘I’m just praying, and God will save me,’ ” Rodkin says. “No, we need to take care of situations ourselves.”

Several of his congregants, including former soldiers and retired police, are now carrying guns into daily services at Rodkin’s synagogue, which also operates a day school.

According to the Shaloh House website, “It was founded under the auspices and instruction of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who envisioned the creation of a Jewish school in Boston that would serve the needs of the children from non-observant families.”

Rodkin, who said in the interview that he plans to get a gun and organize training for new firearm owners, was not available for comment.

Neal Gold, the president of the Massachusetts Board of Rabbis, told WBUR that he understands the concerns about security but said individuals and synagogues have to balance a tension between safety and the Jewish tenet of welcoming the stranger.

Recent violence targeting Jewish houses of worship has heightened concern at synagogues in Massachusetts and across the country, he said.

Massachusetts has seen a rise in anti Semitic incidents and hate crimes, including recent arson attacks against two Boston-area Chabad centers.

Jeremy Yamin, director of security and operations at Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston, who advises the area’s Jewish institutions, told the radio station that he has heard from other synagogues who are weighing the same question about congregants carrying guns. He cautioned that the decision to carry a gun is not simple and that even those trained with firearms would face a myriad of uncertainties if they confronted an active shooter in their synagogue.

Ohio Committee Advances Constitutional Carry Bill

H/T Bearing Arms.

Will Constitutional Carry pass in Ohio?

When states move toward a permitless carry scheme in their state, there’s usually a progression. From may issue to shall issue, from requiring training to not requiring it anymore. Little steps along the way that eventually makes constitutional carry seem an almost obvious next step.

However, Ohio currently requiring training, yet a legislative committee in their state House just advanced a constitutional carry bill, thus going against the mold.

After a one-week detour, a bill that would allow Ohioans to carry a concealed gun without a permit has advanced in the Ohio House.

A House committee on Wednesday voted mostly along party lines to refer for passage House Bill 178, which would allow anyone 21 and older to carry any concealed deadly weapon as long as they’re not legally barred from owning a gun.

The bill is now expected to head to a different committee for further review, something that’s unlikely to happen before the legislature breaks for its summer recess.

Ohio’s existing concealed-carry system, under which one can only conceal handguns, and only after going through a permitting process that involves mandatory training and a background check, has been in place since 2004, signed into law by then-Gov. Bob Taft following a years-long lobbying campaign by the National Rifle Association. That bill was backed by House Speaker Larry Householder, who also leads the House today.

Now, this doesn’t mean Ohio is getting constitutional carry. Not necessarily, anyway. What it does mean, though, is that one more hurdle for such a bill to pass has been cleared.

Frankly, while there’s a usual progression toward constitutional carry, there’s no reason the system can’t be completely revamped like this. No reason at all. It’s just incremental change is usually an easier sell to make, but if they can make a jump like this then more power to them.

The truth is that a number of states have permitless carry and have had no issues with it. Others may still require permits, but getting one is little more than a formality, and there’s been no issue there either.

There’s no reason to require law-abiding citizens to jump through hoops like this.

Criminals, on the other hand, aren’t going to jump through them. They’ll carry regardless of what the law says. I mean, they’re criminals. That’s kind of their schtick, right?

My sincere hope is that Ohio doesn’t drag their feet on this measure. I hope they put it to a vote and pass it. The only people who will truly benefit from it are the law-abiding citizens who are our best line of defense against all manner of criminals. They’ll be free to carry their guns without approaching the government with hat in hand, asking, “Mother may I?”

Instead, they can carry as they see fit, the way free men and women should have always been permitted to carry weapons. All they need is for lawmakers in Ohio to not mess around and vote for the damn bill and then get out of their damn way.

“Smart Gun” Legislation Misses The Mark

H/T AmmoLand.

There was a smart gun that came out was a.22 caliber that cost over one thousand dollars nobody wants a.22 at that price.

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Anti-gun politicians in the 116th Congress have no shortage of ideas when it comes to different ways of threatening the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners in America.

The misnomer phrase “common sense gun safety” includes misguided and ineffective policies such as requiring background checks to purchase ammunition or requiring so-called “smart gun” technology despite the slew of unanswered questions that experts have posed about the reliability of the unproven technology.

Of course, this hasn’t stopped lawmakers like U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) from introducing legislation that positions the government to take an outsized role in mandating the use of smart gun technology. “Authorized user recognition” technology, commonly referred to as smart gun technology, refers to the concept wherein a firearm would be able to recognize an authorized user, and be limited to firing only when operated by an authorized user as identified by a fingerprint or RFID signal.

No Limit on Bad ideas

Poorly-planned ideas even got traction on the campaign trail when presidential candidate Joe Biden claimed, “If I get elected president of the United States of America with your help, if that happens, guns, we have the capacity now in a James Bond-style to make sure no one can pull a trigger unless their DNA and fingerprint is on it. We have that capacity to do it now. You know it.”

The Start Advancing Firearms Enhancements and Technology (SAFETY) Act, S. 1884, according to Senator Murphy’s press release, is designed to both provide tax incentives to firearm manufacturers who invest more in smart gun development and provide incentives to consumers to buy smart guns by reducing the firearm excise tax amount on guns that meet his definition.

Senator Murphy’s press release goes on to claim that “the firearm industry and responsible gun owners should already be embracing these kinds of innovations,” but in truth, gun manufacturers have actually been researching smart gun technology since its first emergence in the 1990s. Measurable demand from consumers, however, has never materialized. Instead, gun buyers in general and law enforcement in particular have expressed deep suspicion toward devices that interfere with the straightforward and reliable operation of a firearm.

Lack of Consumer Demand

Most recently, researchers at Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research found that while almost 50 percent of gun owners have heard of smart guns, just 5 percent of the respondents would even consider buying a smart gun. It defies the principles of the free market for Congress to push American businesses into manufacturing a product that consumers aren’t interested in purchasing.

First and foremost, there are significant concerns about the reliability of a smart gun, especially if the battery that powers the technology runs out of power. In one scenario, when the battery fails, the firearm would revert to a default mode where it can be fired by anyone, not just the authorized user. In this case, not only is the entire point of the technology defeated but it would also expose the manufacturer to serious lawsuits for a defective product.

The second potential scenario is if the battery fails and the firearm ceases to operate, even if the authorized user is holding it. In a life-threatening situation where someone is defending themselves or their family, the potential for a smart gun to fail in this manner is simply unacceptable. Finally, as many of us may have experienced with our smartphones, fingerprint or other smart ID technology is not perfect and can often not work properly on the first try. In a life-threatening scenario, arming yourself with a smart gun is untenable unless you know that the technology will work 100 percent of the time, every time. At this point in time, we know that the standard is not even close to being met.

Path to Mandates

It is ironic that when talking about this bill, Senator Murphy said it is meant to “harness the power of American innovation” but that sentiment is already shared by those in the firearms industry. NSSF thoroughly believes the free market should be allowed to function. If there is sufficient consumer demand, and the technological challenges to making a safe and reliable product are overcome, then it will come to market. NSSF, however, strongly opposes any government mandate that requires smart guns to be sold in lieu of a traditional firearm. Mandates like these have already been seen across the country and are the inevitable end goal of legislators like Senator Murphy. When it comes to the Second Amendment and the right to defend yourself, Americans simply cannot be forced by the government to rely on faulty devices that may or may not work when needed the most.

Lastly, it is important to keep in mind that all firearms, when not in use, should be securely stored to prevent unauthorized access. Every firearm ever made is capable of being secured from unauthorized use by a responsible firearms owner.
