2016 YEAR OF MULTICULTURALISM: Notice Anything Different About Your Mail? Muslims Are LOVING It

Published

on

From Mad World: With the new year upon us, it seems that changes are coming for everyone – whether you like it or not. Proving this to be the case could actually be the mail headed your way right now. There could be something very different on one of your envelopes, and Muslims are absolutely loving it.

With the new year, the post office has just released a new set of stamps. One particular design isn’t like anything you’ve probably ever seen. It actually bears Islamic calligraphy in honor of the two most significant Muslim festivals – Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.

New Post Office Stamps Celebrate Muslim Holiday

As it turns out, the calligraphy, by Mohamed Zakaria of Arlington, Virginia, actually says Eidukum mumbarak, or “May your Eid be bountiful (or blessed).” The Daily Caller further explains:

Eid al-Adha occurs in the autumn and honors Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son on God’s command. As part of the holiday, Muslims who can afford it are expected to sacrifice their best domestic animal (cow, goat, camel, sheep, etc., depending on the region).

Furthermore, Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan – the month long fast where Muslims are forbidden to eat during daylight hours. In order to mark the end of Ramadan, Islamists celebrate with a feast.

Now, it should be noted here that Islam isn’t the only religion to make an appearance on the new stamps. Others include two Christmas stamps – one featuring a nativity scene – and even a Hanukkah menorah stamp as well.

Of course, those in charge are all too willing to come to the defense of the new selection, despite a bit of outrage over the matter.

“Our stamps articulate the American experience through miniature works of art,” acting stamp services director Mary-Anne Penner said in a press release. “Our diverse stamp topics for 2016 are sure to appeal to everyone.”

Trump Had ENOUGH! Just Signed a 5-Year Ban….This is HUGE!

It’s happening!

Published

on

President Trump has been in office for less than a year, and he is more determined than ever to make sure his agenda to make America great again does not fail. After the Supreme Court ruled that President Trump’s travel ban was indeed constitutional, he is not wasting any more time and pushing through more initiatives to strengthen our country. Over this past weekend, Trump took his presidential pen and signed an executive order to help restore sincerity and honesty in Washington, which has the left screaming foul.

Now, this is how you drain the swamp.

President Trump is making good on his campaign promises, and the left cannot stand it.

First, Trump scored a significant win when the Supreme Court reinstated the travel ban and then shortly after that he officially recognized Jeresulam as the capital of Israel, which had leftists melting like snowflakes in July. As these fragile liberals are still recovering from a massive dose of #MAGA, Trump used that momentum to sign into action another executive order to drain the swamp.

In another effort to keep more of his campaign promises, Trump ended backroom deals and put government employees on notice in his latest executive order.

President Donald Trump fulfilled an essential portion of his pledge to “drain the swamp” in Washington, by banning administration officials from ever lobbying the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government and imposing a separate five-year ban on all lobbying activities.

Trump has said individuals who want to aid him in his mission to “Make America Great Again” should focus on the jobs they will be doing to help the American people, and not to be thinking ahead to their future income they could rake in by peddling their influence after serving in the government.

This new ban that Trump signed supersedes the one that Barack Obama signed in 2009, that banned anyone from lobbying the government for a period of two years after leaving the government. Though what makes Trump’s ban better than Obama’s is that the new ban closes up all the “loopholes” that the former ban allowed.

Soon after making that monumental move, Trump went on to sign two more executive orders that show just how serious Trump is about making our country great again.

Here is more from Breitbart:

President Donald J. Trump signed three new executive actions on Saturday afternoon, including a five-year lobbying ban, reorganization of the National Security Council, and a plan to defeat the Islamic State.

Regarding the lobbying ban, Trump said:

So this is a five-year lobbying ban, and this is all of the people — most of the people standing behind me will not be able to go to work.

It’s a two-year ban now and it’s got full of loopholes and this is a five-year ban. So you have one last chance to get out. Good, I had a feeling you were going to say that.

This was something, the five-year ban, that I have been taking a lot about on the campaign trail.

Ahead of the signing, a senior administration official indicated that the lobbying ban included not only a five-year ban on administration officials but a lifetime ban on administration officials lobbying for a foreign country.

After signing the document to reorganize the National Security Council, the President said, “This is the organization of the National Security Council and the Homeland Security Council, you know pretty much what it represents, it represents a lot, and also a lot of efficiency and I think a lot of additional safety. People have been talking about this for a long time, like many years.”

President Trump signed the ISIS plan, after which he said, “This is the plan to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, in other words, ISIS. I think it’s going to be very successful. That’s big stuff.”

The White House senior administration official also said ahead of the signing that the executive action regarding ISIS would give military leaders 30 days to compile and present a report to the President on a strategy to defeat ISIS.

The President responded to questions about Friday’s executive order on immigration after signing each of the three executive actions, stating, “It’s not a Muslim ban, but we were totally prepared. It’s working out very nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all over.”

President Trump is doing precisely what the American people sent him to Washington D.C. to do, and that is to bring integrity back to the government. Under the Obama administration, everything was sold off to the highest bidder which did not serve the American people, but only helped fatten the lobbyist’s pocketbooks, and that is about to end.

Thank you, President Trump, for putting the American people first and doing your best to make America great again!

24Hrs After Dem Leader Arrested Outside Capitol His Scandalous Wife Busted In Bigger Crime – Prison Will Be HARSH

Published

on

Washington has been pounded with wave after wave of scandal lately. From the sexual misconduct of far more politicians than we would have liked to admit, to the revelation of mishandling of funds to cover up that misconduct, the American people have become increasingly disillusioned with our supposed public servants.

Being a lawmaker requires that the people of your constituency put a lot of trust in you to not only look out for their best interest in political votes but just that they’re doing what they say they will do with the funds that you give them to run for reelection. When someone is a veteran political insider, they often gather up faithful followers who donate to them loyally every single year. It’s difficult to think of those people putting their hard earned dollars to those who would abuse them, but that’s just what’s happening.

Democratic Representative Luis Gutierrez and his wife Soraida, are both being investigated for fraud when the details of their usage of campaign funds came out. The Washington Free Beacon reports that Gutierrez has not only been arrested but won’t be seeking re-election after these facts came out:

“Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez (Ill.), who announced last week that he will not seek reelection after spending 24 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, will no longer be able to pay his wife hundreds of thousands of dollars from campaign funds once he officially departs from Congress.

Soraida Gutierrez, his wife, has collected more than $430,000 from Gutierrez for Congress, Luis’s campaign committee, since 2010. Soraida is the top recipient of expenditures this year.”

Maybe you’re thinking that Gutierrez and his wife had just fallen on hard times. After all, he was a representative of Illinois and had to travel back and forth from D.C. quite a bit, and how much can they really get paid? Well funny you should ask; every congressman gets paid $174,000 per year and has up to 239 days off, a large portion of its health insurance subsidized, better retirement, free travel, death benefits, free travel to and from D.C., plus $250,000 budget for travel and office expenses, paid for entirely by taxpayers. That’s not to mention $900,000 we pay them for their staff and other staff related expenses.

I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t exactly seem like a budget that would force a person to pinch pennies. But still, on top of that the couple has taken hundreds of thousands in donates from their loyal supporters to use for their own personal gain. Let’s hear a little more about just how much money Soraida was getting for helping with hubby’s campaign:

“Soraida, who was a registered lobbyist in Illinois prior to appearing on the campaign’s payroll, has been listed as the campaign’s office manager, fundraiser, and treasurer for the past seven years.

Gutierrez’s campaign committee has reported $77,838.69 in operating expenditures from the beginning of January to the end of September. Soraida has received seven checks for $6,000 each—or $42,000 total—during this time, meaning that she has collected more than half of his campaign’s disbursements.

The second largest expenditure from Gutierrez’s campaign this year is a $22,000 donation to the Puerto Rican Relief Fund, which is not included in the committee’s operating expenditures total, but is rather marked under other disbursements.

Gutierrez has said he is leaving Washington to focus on the rebuilding efforts in Puerto Rico, although some have speculated that the abrupt retirement raises questions about his motives and that he has made a ‘grand inside play,’ Politico reported.

Despite Soraida being paid generously for fundraising services from the campaign, the committee has raised only $2,812.86 in total individual contributions this year. Other campaign committees have added $17,000 in donations to Gutierrez.”

This is not the first time Soraida has been the top recipient of cash from her husband’s campaign.

When Soraida first joined the campaign in 2010, she was paid $44,000 from its war chest. In 2012, Soraida’s payments rose to $93,000. In 2014, Soraida pulled in $110,000. In 2016, she collected $125,856. Soraida was the top recipient of cash from Gutierrez for Congress every election cycle since first appearing on its payroll seven years ago.”

And as if that’s not enough, Soraida isn’t the only one in the family who’s been getting a kickback for helping dear old dad. Apparently, the kiddos are also getting in on the action:

“Gutierrez also paid his two daughters a combined $5,000 for a fundraising project and bookkeeping between 2004 and 2009.

Members of Congress have been allowed to place family on campaign payrolls since a 2001 Federal Election Commission opinion requested by former Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (Ill.).

After the FEC gave the green light for federal politicians to pay relatives from their committees, Jackson Jr. went on to pay his wife’s firm hundreds of thousands of dollars from his committee.

Jackson and his wife later pleaded guilty to using $750,000 in campaign funds for personal use.

Gutierrez did not return a request for comment on the payments to his wife by press time.”

Maybe someday the second most crooked politician to come out of Illinois will have something to say for himself, but until then he can spend his time as exhibit A as to why the swamp in Washington really does need to be drained. People need to know that when they donate to a campaign, they’re not just paying for a Rolex, they’re actually contributing toward the vital needs of a campaign.

HOLY COW! The Surprising Unemployment Numbers Were Just Released And Life-changing For So Many Americans

Published

on

The reasons behind President Trump winning over the nation are both numerous and completely valid. Not only was he a complete political outsider, which many have considered to be what Washington needs, but he’s an experienced businessman. That means that he not only knows how to handle people, he knows how to handle a checkbook, and no matter how much criticism that he receives for his business practices, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more iconic businessman.

America has been in dire need of a financial and economic overhaul for quite some time and Donald J. Trump seemed to be the guy for the job. His campaign promises included things like bringing jobs back, lowering the national debt, and decreasing the number of people on welfare. Promises like this are not only exactly what middle-class Americans have been looking for, they’re finally made by someone with real-world experience that we thought might be able to follow through with them.

While the doubters were plentiful, the President has done just that; he has made good on almost every single promise that he made while on the campaign trail, and he’s only been in office less than a year. The Gateway Pundit  reports that the most recent economic numbers show that Trump’s economy is “on fire” and looks likely to stay there:

“Job numbers released today through the end of November show an increase of 2.2 million jobs since last years election and an unemployment rate of 4.1 percent. After the same period under Obama, (4.8) million jobs were lost and unemployment skyrocketed to 9.9 percent!

President Trump’s economic results could arguably be the best all time. The stock market is the highest ever and jobs are being created by the thousands.

According to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, President Trump added a projected 1.9 million jobs in the first eleven months of the year (January through November 2017) and 2.2 million jobs since last year’s election.

The same cannot be said for President Obama’s first eleven months as he lost 4.8 million jobs. Obama was so bad at creating jobs that by the end of his second term he said that jobs were not coming back. This showed in his first eleven months in office because in every month the US lost jobs.”

Why is all of this so important? Well, the answer is pretty simple; more jobs means more money, a better economy, higher GDP, the chance to get out of debt faster. It also leads to fewer people on the government handouts, and that is going to lead to lower taxes and the ability for those same people to vote any way they want without worrying about their money getting taken away.

The whole system is much like when a teenager moves out of the house and gets a job. If they never get a job, they never understand how to manage money, or get a good work ethic.  They’ll likely mooch off you forever, and throw temper tantrums when you switch to generic brand cereal because they don’t understand that there are bigger problems than how much they enjoy their Captain Crunch.  When people have jobs, they start planning for the future, and that includes the future of government and everything that goes with it.

“According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, under President Trump, more Americans are in the workforce than ever before. Over 160 million Americans are working for the first time in US history. President Trump is working hard to bring good paying jobs back to the US and his efforts are showing historic results.  ADP reported 40,000 new manufacturing jobs in November.  This was the highest reported monthly amount of new manufacturing jobs in the history of their report!

Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the US unemployment rate this year has been below January’s rate every month (January through September 2017.) The unemployment rate in January 2017 was 4.8 percent and by November it was down to 4.1 percent.  These are the lowest rates in 17 years.

President Obama on the other hand again moved in the opposite direction. In his first eleven months as President, the US unemployment rate increased every month from 7.8 percent in January 2009 to 9.9 percent by November of 2009.”

In case you’re wondering why you haven’t heard about this, it’s because it really doesn’t fit the liberal narrative well at all. President Trump was supposed to bumble around the Oval Office and get confused as to how to turn on a computer. But President Trump isn’t your friendly neighborhood grandpa, and he doesn’t have any problem following through on the promises made to turn the economy back into the one that he was so privileged to do business in for all these years.

Share to let people know that America is becoming great again!
