Draining the Swamp at the U.N. – Start With the Arms Trade TreatyWhen looking to “drain the swamp” of meddling bureaucrats and global do-gooders, there is perhaps no better place to start than on the banks of the East River in New York, home to the headquarters of the United Nations. And, with the United States’ newest U.N. Ambassador, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, sworn into office, there is no better time to start than now.

Four years ago, then Secretary of State John Kerry signed the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), an international agreement regulating the sale, transfer, and export of conventional weapons, including “small arms and light weapons” – meaning virtually every firearm on the market. Ostensibly, the treaty was to prevent the “human suffering” attributed to the international trade in “illicit” arms.

However, rather than promoting “world peace” and protecting citizens of member nations from the scourge of “illicit” firearms, the multi-year U.N. effort was a thinly-veiled attempt to engage in gun control both internationally and domestically within member nations.

Under the decisive leadership of the Bush Administration’s then-Undersecretary of State (and, later, acting Ambassador to the U.N.) John Bolton, the U.S. made clear it would neither support nor allow to be adopted any international instrument that directly or indirectly infringed any constitutionally-protected rights. Kerry’s signature on the ATT in 2013 reversed this approach, and instead committed the U.S. government -- as a signatory -- not to act “contrary to” the ATT’s terms, even if those actions conflicted with the interests and constitutional rights of U.S. citizens, and not withstanding that the Senate had not ratified the treaty itself.

Fire Them All

It seems some folks just need a good bitch slap and that includes every single Democratic member of Congress. And why...for playing politics...for acting like Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) and Steve Mnuchin have just now been voted out of committee (the final vote goes to the Senate this afternoon)...without even one Democratic member present even after they had all been told that the vote would be this morning. This rightfully forced the Senate Finance Committee to suspend the rules that required at least one member of the Democratic party to be present. This political ploy is a shameful display by those who refuse to accept as fact that Hillary Clinton will NEVER be president.

They should ALL be fired for NOT doing the job their constituents elected them to do...period.
Conservative Gorsuch Emulates Scalia Without the Rough Edges

Image: Conservative Gorsuch Emulates Scalia Without the Rough EdgesIf confirmed by the Senate to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch would fill the seat of the man he seeks to emulate as a judge.

He would be the first justice to serve alongside a colleague for whom he worked. Gorsuch described his former boss, Justice Anthony Kennedy, Tuesday as one of the judges who brought him up in the law.

President Donald Trump nominated Gorsuch to fill the seat of Justice Antonin Scalia, who died nearly a year ago. Trump said he was delivering on his pledge to choose someone in Scalia's mold.

Gorsuch, a federal appeals court judge in Denver for the past 11 years, said he adheres to Scalia's approach to the law, evaluating the Constitution and laws by how they were understood when they written. He also shares with Scalia a flair for writing.
But unlike the sometimes irascible Scalia, Gorsuch approaches his work with a courtly manner more reminiscent of Kennedy.

Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the bipartisan National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, has known Gorsuch since they worked as clerks on the federal appeals court in Washington, though for different judges.
London’s Muslim mayor demands cancellation of President Trump’s state visit to UK

By Robert Spencer / Jihad Watch


Sadiq Khan said: “I am quite clear, this ban is cruel, this ban is shameful, while this ban is in place we should not be rolling out the red carpet for President Trump.” Let’s put this in perspective. Britain has a steadily lengthening record of admitting jihad preachers without a moment of hesitation. Syed Muzaffar […]

Treason AGAINST Trump: 900 US officials sign ‘dissent memo’ BLASTING ‘Muslim ban’

Fire them all. Ronald Reagan did it with the air traffic controllers. This massive purge of subversives and enemy operatives would be a gift to America.

Buh Bye.

It’s not a “Muslim ban.” That would mean all Muslims were banned from entering the US. This is a counter terrorist measure.

Trump’s executive order states that it is designed “to protect the American people from terrorist attacks by foreign nationals admitted to the United States.” It adds: “The United States must be vigilant during the visa-issuance process to ensure that those approved for admission do not intend to harm Americans and that they have no ties to terrorism.”

Why didn’t these evil clowns protest Obama’s ban on Iraqi refugees or Carter’s ban on Iranians?

Many liberals in 1975 were part of a chorus of big name Democrats who refused to accept any Vietnamese refugees when millions were trying to escape South Vietnam as it fell to the communists. California’s Gov. Jerry Brown even attempted to prevent planes carrying Vietnamese refugees from landing at Travis Air Force Base outside San Francisco.

They are beyond transparent. This best embodies the left, it’s their way or anarchy.

Fire them. all.
