The Democrats and the GOP RINOS in Congress are back to their normal shenanigans. But this time our President isn’t Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush or George W. Bush. This morning President Donald Trump sternly warned both Democrats and Republicans in Congress that he won’t approve any legislative fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, until he sees full funding for the much needed border wall between the US and Mexico.
The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the horrible Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc. We must protect our Country at all cost!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 29, 2017
After losing my home state of California because President Ronald Reagan fell for the Democrat lie that promised border wall funding after he sighed amnesty, and seeing how globalist President George HW Bush failed to live up to his 1988 campaign promise of “Read my lips, no new taxes,” which set up this nation for the Clinton curse which we are still living with 25 years later, it’s awesome to finally have a president who actually keeps his promises?
10 promises Trump kept in 2017
Donald Trump in 2017 moved from being a chaos candidate to a chaos president. He shoots for the moon (literally), routinely says things that aren’t true, and often makes pledges that generate enormous attention but very little follow-through. Many of his signature policy efforts have been tied up in or blocked by the courts, his campaign is under investigation by the FBI, and his approval rating is at historic lows for a first-year president.
But the mind-numbing deluge of the Trump administration’s first-year controversies — the sheer number of misstatements and inflammatory tweets and abrupt staffing shifts — sometimes obscures the fact that Trump has achieved quite a number of the things he set out to do during the first year of his administration. He is, after all, the president. And Democratic resistance or no, that remains the most powerful post in the land — the ultimate government executive authority.
Here are 10 campaign promises Trump kept. Together, these achievements could form the nucleus of a reelection campaign.
“Bomb the hell out of ISIS.”
This pledge, made over and over again at raucous arena rallies during the campaign and popularized on buttons and T-shirts sold across America, has largely come to pass. Trump promised old-school war, with its greater tolerance of civilian casualties, and delegated difficult targeting decisions to the generals. By May, the Pentagon was running low on small bombs, it had dropped so many. By July, the U.S.-led bombing campaign had killed more than 2,000 civilians in Iraq — as many as were killed during the entire Obama administration. The Syrian city of Raqqa was declared “liberated” in October, but had been nearly destroyed by the U.S.-backed fighters. In September, Newsweek declared, “Trump really is ‘bombing the s***’ out of ISIS just like he promised.” In December, the Iraqi prime minister declared Iraq “fully liberated” from ISIS. That’s an achievement that past experience shows may be hard to hold — and ISIS-inspired attacks in the West continue to pose a threat as well. But there’s no question that when it comes to having hit ISIS hard, Trump can declare with as much certainty and pride as George W. Bush once did: “Mission accomplished.”
“The replacement for Justice Scalia will be a person of similar views and principles.”
On Jan. 31, Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch, described by the New York Times as “a conservative in the mold of Antonin Scalia.” He was confirmed at the start of April on a 54-45 party-line vote after a bruising political campaign for and against his nomination, and the removal of the judicial filibuster and its 60-vote threshold in the Senate. This was the easiest campaign promise for Trump to keep — thanks to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s refusing to open the confirmation process to an Obama nominee throughout 2016 — and Trump kept it.
Since taking office, Trump has nominated and the Senate has confirmed more appellate judges in his first year than any other president since the courts they sit on were created in 1891.
Pull out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, “a potential disaster for our country.”
Trump promised to replace America’s multilateral trade agreements with one-on-one deals, and on his first full weekday in office he pulled America out of the 12-nation TPP agreement, a signature Obama accomplishment that Hillary Clinton had also expressed doubts about. Critics say U.S. withdrawal from the agreement governing trade with Asian and Pacific nations only strengthened the hand of China.
“Cancel” the Paris climate deal.
Trump vowed to “cancel” the Paris climate accord, which was ratified in October 2016, giving it the force of international law, and in June 2017 announced he would withdraw the United States from the now 197-country agreement to reduce carbon emissions. “We’re getting out,” he said. Of course the accord continues to exist, even without the official support of the world’s second-largest source of carbon emissions. And because the climate accord was ratified just days before Trump won election, the process of withdrawing from it is no simple matter: It will take four years and only become final shortly before the 2020 election. Nonetheless, Trump took all the steps he could to put “a checkmark next to one of his key campaign promises,” as CNN put it over the summer.
“The Trump plan will lower the business tax rate.”
Trump made an array of specific promises during the campaign on how he’d cut taxes as president. Among them: Lower the business tax rate from 35 to 15 percent, “collapse the current seven tax brackets to three brackets,” repeal the alternative minimum tax and eliminate the carried interest loophole, create a new child- and elder-care tax deduction, and eliminate the estate tax.
Of these promises, the one most clearly encoded in the tax bill hashed out by Congress in December was the lowering of the corporate tax rate, which was reduced from 35 percent to 21 percent. “This bill put corporate tax cuts first; that’s where roughly 70 percent of the benefits go,” noted Los Angeles Times columnist Doyle McManus. The alternative minimum tax remains on the books, though with a higher income exemption level, as does the carried interest loophole and the estate tax. The new plan does not decrease the number of tax brackets at all, though it changes their income thresholds and rates.
“Repeal and replace disastrous Obamacare.”
Congressional Republicans were repeatedly thwarted in their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act’s many provisions in stand-alone bills, but the individual-mandate penalty for not carrying health insurance, which was legally permitted as a form of taxation by the U.S. Supreme Court, was repealed in the tax bill passed December 20. The mandate penalty is understood as one of the core provisions underlying the ACA’s health insurance exchanges, which need healthy as well as sick individuals to pay into the system.
The Trump administration sought to undermine enrollment in the exchanges in other ways too, such as cutting back on the advertising for them and the time to enroll. But Democratic and activist efforts to preserve Obamacare may have acted as a yearlong advertising campaign for the program, and enrollment in the exchanges in the end reached record numbers for 2018.
Rolling back regulations.
Donald Trump has overseen what the Week has described as “the biggest regulatory rollback in American history.” As befits an antiregulatory agenda overseen by a former real estate developer, the major focus of that rollback has been undoing regulations promulgated by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of the Interior — both of which govern land use — and rules that rein in the banking industry. The administration has also adopted a more lenient approach to enforcing those rules that remain on the books.
“Drill, baby, drill.”
Advocates for protecting wildlife in the Arctic
This was originally a 2008 Sarah Palin campaign promise, but Trump stood next to her as she echoed it while supporting his campaign, and he promised to once again open America’s public lands and offshore areas to energy exploration. In April, Trump signed an executive order to allow offshore drilling in parts of the Arctic, Pacific and Atlantic oceans, including in marine sanctuaries, declared off limits under Obama. He also ordered the Interior Department to review the Obama-era rules. The administration overturned an Obama-era ban on new coal mining leases on public lands as well.
“By ending catch-and-release on the border, we will stop the cycle of human smuggling and violence. Illegal border crossings will go down.”
Then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly declared on a visit to El Paso, Texas, in April, “We have ended dangerous catch-and-release enforcement policies.”
That was a bit of an overstatement, but the perception that the Trump administration had ended the policy of allowing captured undocumented border crossers to avoid detention while awaiting legal disposition of their cases led to a dramatic 58 percent decline in border-crossing attempts during the first half of 2017.
By June, the average monthly increase in those awaiting proceedings outside custody was about 7,500, compared with 20,600 during the final seven months of Obama’s presidency. In April, the Border Patrol caught a low of 11,100 undocumented immigrants, but by October it had become clear that there had not actually been a formal revocation of catch-and-release policies, despite statements to the contrary, and border crossings surged again, to 26,000. That said, Trump’s assertion that ending catch-and-release would decrease crossings was proved correct, and border crossing attempts declined sharply for a time.
Recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
“While previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Today, I am delivering,” Trump said in making the announcement overturning seven decades of U.S. foreign policy in December. The administration went on to sign a waiver permitting the U.S. Embassy to remain in Tel Aviv for another six months, continuing the policies of previous presidents.
We finally have President Trump, a man of his word who won’t let the establishment convince him that they can be trusted. All during the campaign as he would make his multiple, almost unreal, promises, I recall telling a friend who was very suspicious of him at that point, “If he does 10% of what he claims it will still be 8% more than what any other Republican President in our lifetimes has ever done, and who knows, we might even be pleasantly surprised.” Never in a million years did I ever dream that after only a year in office, he would be keeping most of the promises he made. Makes you wonder what the other 44 presidents were doing during their time in office.
Please share if you are proud of President Donald Trump….

Trump Just Had 199 People Arrested In Secret Overnight Raid After Hearing What They ALL Did! HELL YEAH!
HELL YEAH!!! #MAGA!!
If there’s anything the last almost 36 hours have taught us, it’s that we’re at war within our own country. It’s not because conservatives want to be or have brought cause for this divisive hatred, but because the left can’t handle not having the control they have enjoyed for the last eight years of destruction. President Trump has been the biggest threat to all they hold dear that’s not good for our country and proved just that when he ordered the arrest of 199 people in one particular state. There’s expected to be more soon before he’s done making the necessary point that the U.S. doesn’t tolerate terrorism of any kind.
Citizens of this great nation are under attack from within and it’s coming from a number of directions, one of which revealed itself recently. We’re lucky to have a leader like Trump in charge to stop it before it gets more out of control, but it was two terms of Barack Obama that got us here to begin with. The work that the current Commander-in-Chief has cut out for him is far more complex than he may have thought, but is more than up for the challenge anyway and doing a masterful job at it. This was just seen with the swift and assertive action the president took that resulted in a whopping 199 arrests.
Liberalism isn’t the only “cancer” in the country that seeks to destroy what our forefathers built. The immense refugee program that Obama set up, which set out to bring 100,000 Muslims to America was an invitation to terrorism. What we’re seeing in Europe, with on terror attack after another as a direct result of their open door policy to refugees, is what President Trump is taking action to avoid in America, and has already done a brilliant job at this, starting with the Muslim “Mecca” of America.
The Jerusalem Post reports:
“US immigration authorities have arrested and moved to deport 199 Iraqi immigrants, mostly from the Detroit area, in the last three weeks after Iraq agreed to accept deportees as part of a deal removing it from President Donald Trump’s travel ban, officials said on Wednesday.”
“In the Detroit area, 114 Iraqi nationals were arrested over the weekend, and 85 throughout the rest of the country over the past several weeks, Gillian Christensen, a US Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman, said in a statement.”
“The actions came as part of the Trump administration’s push to increase immigration enforcement and make countries, which have resisted in the past, take back nationals ordered deported from the United States.”
Dealing with what Obama created in this regard stretches beyond just an immigration ban which Trump has put into place numerous times over to usurp liberals’ efforts to stop it. We already have a lot of the problem here where hate percolates as American taxpayers foot the bill for what will be an inevitable attack from within if we don’t start paying attention to these problems.
Also, before any Democrat or eccentric lefty wants to use this arresting spree as more reason to create hate for Trump or the conservative party, there’s one unfortunate fact about the majority of the deported which you won’t hear on mainstream media.
“The overwhelming majority of those arrested had criminal convictions for crimes including murder, rape, assault, kidnapping, burglary, drug trafficking, weapons violations and other offences,” Gillian Christensen, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman said, according to MSN.
As expected, the rhetoric has already begun to counter Trump’s offence to terrorism within our own borders, but liberals reporting this sweeping arrest with pictures of crying children. They’re also claiming that Trump is sending persecuted Christians back to their war-torn nations. While there was a few who caught up in the fringe by default of placement and perhaps unfortunate associations, they are a very small minority of the nearly 200 shipped out of the U.S.

While the kids pictured could be collateral damage in this deportation, they are victims too, having been born to parents with criminal intentions in America who will breed them to believe hateful things.
The message Trump is sending is one that’s important for everyone to hear – both those who are here illegally or committing crimes or those who think they can come here and get away with it while feeding off our system. America is a nation of laws and those who refuse to abide by them or make their way into our communities and take over the western way of life, will not be tolerated – they will be shipped out or stopped from coming here.
Please share to spread this message that Trump is sending and to show your support for making America great again 200 fewer refugees at a time. Our president is getting the country back to what we knew it to be before Barack Obama took office and systematically destroyed it.
Muslims In Indiana Are READY to RIOT After Seeing What Massive Sign Says That Popped Up Overnight
BUT ITS THE TRUTH RIGHT!??
It’s rather easy to discover what Muslims really believe, all you have to do is pick up a copy of the Quran and start reading. Contained within Muslims’ holy book you’ll find at least 109 graphic verses that calls on Muslims to go to war with non believers, were followers of Islam are encouraged to chop off of the heads of non-believers, and actively prodded to rape infidel women and take them as slaves. But Muslims always get a little pissy when you point out the truth about their religion, going into rage mode if you happen to mention their holy prophet was actually a war-mongering slave-owning pedophile who took a child as his bride when she was only six-years-old. Now Muslims in Indiana are completely outraged after a billboard was erected by local residents exposing the truth about the man who founded their religion, and they are demanding that it be immediately removed.
Not beating around the bush about the true meaning of Islam, the billboard crafted by the group “Truthophobes” hilariously mocks their prophet Mohammed as “The Perfect Man” where the gigantic billboard then lists out six truth-filled bullet points to describe him. The bullets include: “Married a 6-year-old,” “Slave owner & dealer,” “rapist,” “Beheaded 600 Jews in one day,” “13 wives, 11 at one time” and “Tortured & killed unbelievers.”
Local Muslims instantly got their man dresses and burkas in a collective wad, predictably screaming that the creator of the billboard was a “bigot.”
“I was a little disappointed when I saw that,” Farial Khatri of the Islamic Society of North America told Fox 59. “We do support free speech, but we do realize this is also rooted in bigotry.”
Hilariously, the Muslim Alliance of Indiana plans to raise money to put a billboard up right across the street in order to try counter the billboard’s truth-filled message, where they plan to plaster a propaganda-filled message about Islam being about “peace and kindness.”
A billboard on the east side of Indianapolis is catching the eyes of drivers, along with the ire of local Muslim groups.
You can spot the sign from the southbound lanes of I-465 near the Washington Street exit. It claims to list the “perfect man,” but opponents say it degrades the Muslim prophet Mohammad.
“I was a little disappointed when I saw that,” said Farial Khatri of the Islamic Society of North America.
Opponents say the billboard’s bullet points are meant to disparage the Muslim faith and its primary prophet, Mohammad.
“We’ve seen them in New York and several others cities on billboards as well as other transit ads,” said Kahtri.
There’s no company name or identifying group on the display, but Google “Truthophobes,” a word seen at the bottom of the billboard, and you’ll find a range of websites rife with anti-Muslim messages.
“We do support free speech, but we do realize this is also rooted in bigotry,” said Kahtri.
“Peace and kindness” my ass! We’re just into the second week of Ramadan and already these “peace-loving” idiots are already out in full force, as they continue to rock the globe with increasing acts of terrorism as the promise of extra “benefits” for being a martyr over Muslims’ holy month is driving them to commit more acts of jihad for their depraved religion.
While Muslims in America continue to spew propaganda about their “peaceful” religion down our throats, three separate terror attacks since Ramadan began has already taken the lives of 149 people, with the city of Paris being targeted yet again after a psycho Muslim stormed the Notre Dame Cathedral on Tuesday with a knife. The Daily Caller reported:
The major attacks of Ramadan 2017 include twin suicide bombings in Baghdad and a massive suicide borne vehicle bomb in Afghanistan. An unconfirmed terrorist incident also occurred at a casino hotel in Manila earlier this week. These attacks occurred before a reported deadly incident on London Bridge Saturday.
The Baghdad bombings targeted both an ice cream shop and elderly pension distribution center. The ice cream shop was frequented by families with small children and killed 10. The first bombing killed 12, and nearly 100 were injured between the two blasts.
The second bombing in Afghanistan killed nearly 100 people and injured hundreds more. The massive suicide vehicle struck one of the safest areas of Kabul in Afghanistan and destroyed parts of the German embassy. Several German and U.S. citizens were killed in the attack. Afghan officials believe that Taliban elements headed by the Haqqani network are responsible for the attack.
A gunman also stormed a casino hotel resort in Manila Friday and set fire to a hotel while attempting to steal nearly $2 million in gaming chips. He engaged casino workers in a firefight and then appears to have killed himself. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, which killed nearly 40 people. All casualties in the attack were caused by smoke inhalation by fire.
Kudos to this group known as Truthophobes for shining the light on the true meaning of Islam despite the backlash that they’ve received. Muslims are quickly learning that Americans are wide awake and not willing to be led to the slaughter like the idiots over in Europe, and if they think they’re going to easily take America down with their violent jihad they’ve got a whole other thing coming!
BREAKING! Marine Patrolling US Border Has A Terrifying Warning For Every American In Border States
THEY TRIED TO HIDE IT!
To all of you out there who think those of us who supported, and voted for, then candidate Donald Trump because we are xenophobic and racist, here is your wake up call. A former United States Marine Patrolling the Mexico-Texas Border has a chilling message for you and all Americans.
“In an interview with Dennis Michael Lynch, a former U.S. Marine who served in the Middle East is now an active member of a border group that patrols the southern border. He is a former bomb expert trained by the Department of Defense. Known to his pals as “Talon,” he shared his thoughts about the “other than Mexicans” that have been coming through the border for years.
“The Chinese and Middle Eastern people coming through the border are not coming here to cut our lawns and wash dishes. They hate us with a passion,” said Talon. When referring to the Muslims who hate the U.S. he said, “We are the infidels and they think we deserve to die.”
DML asked him how long until another 9/11? Talon answered, “I’m shocked it hasn’t happened yet. Let me tell you that once they figure out how to get a nuke through the border, we will lose a U.S. city.”
There are congressional reports that reveal the drug cartels work with terror groups from the Middle East.”
All this isn’t news to those of us already living in border states. We see what’s coming in on a daily basis. Our cities are being overrun by gang crime like never before. The best of the best doesn’t just walk across our borders. These aren’t children with “Divinity in their Eyes” as Nancy Pelosi calls them. Since President Trump’s inauguration, there has been a sharp decrease in illegals crossing the border illegally, but we won’t be secure until the wall is built and we are able to stop them completely.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions sent official letters to the 9 different cities, counties and the whole state of California ordering them to stop the madness and let The Department of Homeland Security and ICE do their job. If not they will be punished by ceasing to send these 9 entities federal funds. I know my home state of California can’t survive long on its own although liberals and loony politicians actually believe it can. Maybe legalizing Marihuana in this state wasn’t such a great idea after all.
These people walking over our border are not coming here for better job opportunities at all. These people cannot stand America and will do everything they can to destroy us and our way of life. The left knows that the only way to destroy America is through political correctness coupled with multiculturalism.
If you have not read The Communist Takeover of America-45 Declared Goals, I suggest you look it up. The number one stated goal is, U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
We have seen the left use this argument before when stating the reasons for open borders and acceptance of illegals and Muslims. The argument they use is that these people who desire to kill us can be averted if we just coexist with them. Of course, that is absolute insanity, but we have seen that this tactic has worked over the last several years.
That is why we need to be on constant alert and push back against this dangerous rhetoric. We are aware that dangerous people have made their way into America and until they are found and deported pose a real threat. That is why we need President Trump’s border wall to be erected and ICE agents to be allowed to do their job properly.
Those that stand against Trump’s plans to protect our nation should be held accountable for their actions. We need to stand up against these leftist scum and demand that this wall is built sooner than later.
To all you Liberals out there, please, stop with the finger pointing and accusations. This isn’t about being bigoted, Islamophobic, Xenophobic, or whatever “phobic” you want to invent next. It’s about our very survival of as a nation, as a culture and as a people. If you need to, pretend the bad people slipping in through the border are Christians and Jews. I’m sure if they were you would have no issue whatsoever in building a wall to stop them, but please to play with our security and very existence only because you believe in the madness that is Political Correctness.
