Trump: Torture 'Works'—We Need to 'Fight Fire With Fire'
Trump: Torture 'Works'—We Need to 'Fight Fire With Fire'President Trump said Wednesday that he believes torture achieves its purpose and that in the fight against ISIS, it may be necessary.
In an interview with ABC News, Trump talked about the terror group’s savagery and said as far as he’s concerned, “we have to fight with fire.”

As for reviving the use of waterboarding, the president didn’t rule it out but said he’d defer to CIA Director Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary James Mattis.

“When they’re shooting, when they’re chopping off the heads of our people, and other people … because they happen to be a Christian in the Middle East. When ISIS is doing things that nobody has ever heard of since medieval times, would I feel strongly about waterboarding? As far as I’m concerned, we have to fight fire with fire.”

But if Pompeo and Mattis are against the use of waterboarding, he said he’s fine with that decision.

“If they don’t want to do, that’s fine,” he said. “If they do want to do, then I will work toward that end. I want to do everything within the bounds of what you're allowed to do legally. But do I feel it works? Absolutely, I feel it works.”

And as for whether torture works, Trump said he consulted with senior intelligence officials and the resounding response was “yes, absolutely.”

But Pompeo told lawmakers during his confirmation hearing that he would “absolutely not” comply with an order to resume advanced interrogation techniques like waterboarding.  As for Mattis, a former senior George W. Bush official testified that he believes the general would disobey Trump if he wanted waterboarding to be reinstated.

Trump’s comments come on the heels of a draft executive order that was leaked to the press showing the administration raising the prospect of reviving the CIA”s use of ‘black site’ prisons. Mattis and Pompeo were reportedly "stunned" by the draft order.

Hamas top dog says Trump will “entice Israelis to become more radical”
By Christine Williams / Jihad Watch


Mousa Abu Marzouq, a senior Hamas official, stated that “Donald Trump’s positions will further destabilize the region and entice Israelis to become more radical.” Marzouq’s words are a brazen example of the bald-faced ubiquitous lies that jihadists repeat incessantly until leftists belief their absurd propaganda. “Hamas official accuses Trump of holding radical positions, World Israel […]

BREAKING NYT REPORT: Trump Admin Prepares Exec Order to End Funding for UN Agencies Giving Full Membership to PA, PLO

The Trump administration is preparing two executive orders that are likely to cause an earthquake in the Middle East.
By: Hana Levi Julian, Jewish Press, January 25th, 2017: 

The New York Times reported Wednesday in a breaking story that the staff of U.S. President Donald J. Trump is preparing an executive order that would terminate funding for any United Nations agency or other international organization that gives full membership to the Palestinian Authority.

In addition, the order terminates funding for programs or activities that fund abortion or circumvent sanctions against Iran or North Korea. 

According to the report, the draft order also calls for terminating funding for any organization that is “controlled or substantially influenced by any state that sponsors terrorism” or is held responsible for persecution of marginalized groups, or systematic violation of human rights. 

Moreover, the order calls for a minimum 40 percent cut across the board in remaining U.S. funding of international organizations, and establishes a committee to make recommendations as to where the cuts should be made. 

The list of potential targets includes funding for peacekeeping operations, the International Criminal Court at The Hague, aid to nations who “oppose important United States policies” and the United Nations Population Fund. 

A second executive order calls for a review of all current and pending treaties with more than one other nation – applicable only to those not “directly related to national security, extradition or international trade”– and asks for recommendations on which to retain.

Andrew Napolitano: Trump has committed the most revolutionary act I've seen in 45 years

Within four hours of becoming president of the United States, Donald Trump signed an executive order intended to limit immediately the effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) in ways that are revolutionary.

With the stroke of a pen, the president assaulted the heart of the law that was the domestic centerpiece of his predecessor’s administration. How did this happen? How can a U.S. president, who took an oath to enforce the laws faithfully, gut one of them merely because he disagrees with it?

Here is the back story.

When ObamaCare went through Congress in 2010, all Democrats in Congress supported it and all congressional Republicans were opposed. The crux of their disagreement was the law’s command that everyone in the United States obtain and maintain health insurance -- a command that has come to be known as “the individual mandate.”

Republicans argued that Congress was without the authority to compel people to enter the marketplace by purchasing a product -- that such decisions should be freely made by individuals and that that freedom was protected from governmental interference by the Constitution. Democrats argued that the commerce clause of the Constitution, which permits Congress to regulate commerce among the states, also permits it to compel commercial activity on the part of individuals who make up a highly regulated component of interstate commerce.

Hillary Cannot Be Let Off Scot-Free                              By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor

Last night Donald Trump said in a televised interview that he hopes the probe of Hillary Clinton is over. On this he is totally wrong...the probe must go forward (unless there is already enough to arrest her) and charges brought against the Email Queen/Butcher of Benghazi. Treason is treason...'aiding and abetting' is 'aiding and abetting'...and Hillary must face said charges and be made an example of...period.
