25 Top Accomplishments of President Donald J. Trump | Sharyl Attkisson

25 Top accomplishments of President Donald J. Trump Executive order enacted Jan. 1, 2021 requiring hospitals to provide medical prices to patients upfront so they can shop around. 2. Reversing the ascent of the Islamic extremist terrorist group ISIS. 3. “Most Favored Nation” executive order so that the U.S. (through Medicare) would pay no more for a drug than what’s offered to foreign countries, saving the U.S. an estimated “$85 billion in savings over seven years and $30 billion in out-of-pocket costs.” 4. Moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to the capital of Jerusalem. 5. Building more than 450 miles of new and replacement border wall. 6. Leading U.S. to a level of energy independence (exporting more oil than importing for the first time in 70 years), allowing international policy decisions to be made with less regard to how an oil nation we once relied on would respond. 7. No new wars. 8. Drastic reduction in regulations, opening the door for entrepreneurs and businesses to succeed, expand, and hire more people. According to the Trump administration, they promised to eliminate two regulations for every new one, but actually wound up eliminating 8 old regulations for every 1 new regulation adopted, equating into an extra $3,100 a year for the average American household. 9. Expanding Republican reach among African Americans and other constituents who traditionally lean Democrat.   10. Cutting taxes in an initiative that benefitted every tax bracket. 11. Doubled the child tax credit. 12. Operation Warp Speed: accelerated development of coronavirus vaccines. 13. Eliminated the Obamacare penalty. 14. A series of trade agreements and changes seen as beneficial to Americans, including replacing NAFTA with USMCA. 15. Instead of 2-for-1, we eliminated 8 old regulations for every 1 new regulation adopted. 16. Provided the average American household an extra $3,100 every year. 17. Started the Space Force. 18. Instituted “Right to Try,” allowing terminally ill patients to use potentially lifesaving, unproven treatments. 19. Prioritized and made permanent funding for historically black colleges. 20. Brokered peace deals or normalization agreements between Israel and five Muslim and Arab-Muslim countries. 21. Banned the teaching of “Critical Race Theory” in the federal government. 22. Withdrew from Iran nuclear deal. 23. Withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord. 24. Instituted a Buy American policy within federal agencies. 25. Achieved a $400 billion increase in contributions by NATO allies by 2024 with the number of members meeting their minimum obligations doubling.

Fort Worth Regulators Target Community Fridges Providing Free Food for People in Need – Reason.com

That city’s community fridge project was started by Kendra Richardson, a local high school teacher and activist, Eater’s Brittanie Shey reported in September. Richardson’s successful Funky Town Fridge project soon added two more community fridges. But, as Shey reported last week, the Funky Town Fridge project is in jeopardy now thanks to a perfect storm of inane (and inanely applied) state and local laws. After allowing her to operate for months, Fort Worth officials informed Richardson that the community fridges violate what Shey rightly terms “an obscure, archaic law, passed in 1964, that is meant to prevent children from becoming stuck in airtight appliances.”

POLITICAL: After bitter election, GOP newcomer to focus on election integrity in first term | Just The News

Freshman Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn, the youngest representative in the House in over five decades, says he will be focusing in part on nationwide election integrity in the wake of the bitter and divisive 2020 election season.  Cawthorn, who represents North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, told Just the News that he wants to expand Congress’s investigations into election security beyond the ongoing allegations of voter irregularities that have circulated around the 2020 vote.  “We’re going to be making the law very clear on what you can do when you contest an election, and how you can do it,” he said, adding that he will also support inquiries into early voting practices, which have formed an increasingly larger share of the vote in recent years. Over 100 million Americans cast early votes in the 2020 election, with about 2/3 of those coming via mail-in ballots.

The Reason for Ron Paul’s Suspension from Facebook Is Revealed, and It’s Frightening

Those who continue to argue that the social media companies are purely private ventures acting independent of US government interests are ignoring reality. The corporatist merger of “private” US social media companies with US government foreign policy goals has a long history and is deeply steeped in the hyper-interventionism of the Obama/Biden era. “Big Tech” long ago partnered with the Obama/Biden/Clinton State Department to lend their tools to US “soft power” goals overseas. Whether it was ongoing regime change attempts against Iran, the 2009 coup in Honduras, the disastrous US-led coup in Ukraine, “Arab Spring,” the destruction of Syria and Libya, and so many more, the big US tech firms were happy to partner up with the State Department and US intelligence to provide the tools to empower those the US wanted to seize power and to silence those out of favor. In short, US government elites have been partnering with “Big Tech” overseas for years to decide who has the right to speak and who must be silenced. What has changed now is that this deployment of “soft power” in the service of Washington’s hard power has come home to roost.

TINFOILHAT: Evidence Mounts of a Capitol Hill False Flag – LewRockwell

Wednesday night Capitol Hill violence was likely orchestrated to elevate Biden/Harris to power by ending the Trump-led GOP challenge. It had earmarks of a well-planned false flag by US dark forces. It appears that hostile-to-Trump elements infiltrated largely nonviolent Trump protesters. They got access to Capitol Hill after police and federal law enforcers opened barricades surrounding it, letting them storm the building to commit violence.  Wrongfully blaming Trump for what happened got him to pledge a smooth transition to Biden/Harris on January 20 — ending his hope for a second term. It also intimidated most Republicans to go along with what came off with military precision by a superior force against an easily overwhelmed weak one. Inside Capitol Hill, guards led hostile-to-Trump elements to designated areas. Instead of preventing violence, Capitol Hill security facilitated it in what appears to have been the climax to a homeland color revolution to end Trump’s election challenge by violently quashing it.

Snakes climb poles using terrifying, newly found ‘lasso’ technique – CNET

“Initially, the baffle did work, for the most part,”  Tom Seibert, a Colorado State University emeritus wildlife biology professor, said in a statement. “Then all of a sudden, we saw this snake form what looked like a lasso around the cylinder and wiggle its body up. We watched that part of the video about 15 times. It was a shocker. Nothing I’d ever seen compares to it.”

NY Post: Big Tech’s assault on Parler proves it’s gone full cartel

History shows that cartels do not survive without protection from governments. (From The New York Post) This is looking more like a cabal supporting each other — at the least, uniting to enforce a common political orthodoxy. A similar argument goes: If you don’t like how Facebook or Twitter enforces its rules, go build your own alternative.

SECURITY: ESS voting machine company sends threats

Well, let me explain it for you. The ExpressVote XL, if hacked, can add, delete, or change votes on individual ballots — and no voting machine is immune from hacking. That’s why optical-scan voting machines are the way to go, because they can’t change what’s printed on the ballot. And let me explain some more: The ExpressVote XL, if adopted, will deteriorate our security and our ability to have confidence in our elections, and indeed it is a bad voting machine. And expensive, too!

Seems very simple to me that we need more checks and balances. It’s not a “Conspiracy Theory”, but a realization that the “methods & procedures” REQUIRE one system to mark and different system to count.

Negative consequences of this unchecked spending

My intrepid Mercatus Center colleague Veronique de Rugy has some wishes for the New Year. A slice:

The negative consequences of this unchecked spending will be huge. The Congressional Budget Office, for instance, warned that an extension of unemployment bonuses and benefits creates disincentives to work and a slowdown of the economy. This extra spending also produces an ungodly level of debt, which academic research shows will ultimately slow economic growth. This means that future generations will both live in a slower-growth environment and face higher taxes to pay for today’s obscene spending. And this doesn’t even address the cultural distortions created by programs designed to pay people not to work.

So get ready for more disincentives, higher taxes, and higher inflation.

‘It’s Easy Money’: Nigerian Scammer Laughs about Huge Sums Stolen from COVID Welfare Programs in Bombshell Interview – Foundation for Economic Education

Government bureaucrats were caught flat-footed, and the flood of money being rushed out the door in the name of emergency meant more vulnerabilities than ever. It took many states more than six months to add verification requirements and partially stem the flow. Just to use one state as an example, Washington state usually identifies a few dozen fraudsters in a year—now, it has identified more than 122,000 since March.

So this result shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Why Are U.S. Taxpayers Providing Public Pensions To Millionaire Members Of Congress?

Taxpayers provide pensions, generous pensions, to many millionaires who once worked in government. Not JUST those who were in Congress. (From Forbes) As the longest-serving member of Congress, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) would qualify for a yearly pension of $167,040 if he retired today.

20 striking findings from 2020 | Pew Research Center

A large majority of U.S. adults (86%) say there is some kind of lesson or set of lessons for mankind to learn from the coronavirus outbreak, and about a third (35%) say these lessons were sent by God. In open-ended survey responses collected by the Center in the summer, Americans pointed to practical lessons, such as wearing a mask; personal lessons, such as remembering the importance of spending time with family and loved ones; and societal lessons, such as the need for universal health care. Other responses were political in nature, including criticisms of both major parties and concerns about the politicization of the pandemic.

I agree about the “politicization of the pandemic”.

I, for one, am not sure that there is a “pandemic”, or an “epidemic”.

Evidence is that: (1) adjusting the number of “cycles” in PCR testing seems to dial up whatever result you want; and (2) no one has identified the “corona virus” yet.

Hell, there’s even a Conspiracy Theory” that “corona 19 virus” may be a vitamin defiiency. I have a lot of sympathy for this question about the #wuflu.

MONEY: Bloomberg Intelligence Projects $50 Silver in 2021 | SchiffGold

DECEMBER 23, 2020  BY SCHIFFGOLD   0   0 Saxo Bank recently projected silver will soar to $50 an ounce in 2021, powered by loose monetary policy along with the push for “green energy.” Bloomberg Intelligence is now making a similar call, saying silver will be “the primary metal” benefiting from electrification and quantitative easing in 2021. Gold set a new record earlier this year and briefly traded above $2,000 an ounce. In a recent report, Bloomberg Intelligence senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone predicted silver will follow gold toward a record high of its own.

Levin: On Jan. 6, we learn whether our Constitution will hold – TheBlaze

At no time did the framers even raise the possibility that governors, attorneys general, secretaries of state, election boards, administrators, etc., would play any significant role in the electoral process. Indeed, certain of those offices did not even exist. Moreover, as I said, the courts were rejected out of hand. Thus, such an important power was to be exercised exclusively by the state legislatures.

Sidney Powell interview on Rush Limbaugh show…”Absolutely Unprecedented” | Populist Press 2021 ©

“The very night of the election many people saw something that they had never seen before in the history of our elections. They saw votes being changed on the screen in front of them, going from President Donald Trump to Joe Biden. On top of that, the morning after the election, even that night, the voting stopped. They stopped counting in multiple districts at the same time before the vote got to 270 electors for President Trump. That’s never happened before. The only time votes have ever stopped being counted in this country on election night was when the Broward County problem developed over Hanging Chad’s in one county in FL. So for FIVE states to stop counting on election night is absolutely UNPRECEDENTED. And they did it because the vote count for the electoral college was about to hit [+ go over] 270 for President Donald Trump, because of the massive outpouring of votes for him that night. By the next morning, multiple mathematicians had contacted me and told me they knew the algorithm that had been run to change the votes. It was that obvious to people with mathematical expertise. It is a mathematical impossibility for 100’s of thousands of votes to show up for VP Biden alone and to have been injected into the system the way that they were. We have eye-witness testimony of countless people who saw votes coming in, in unsecured containers and improper means and looking different the night of the election. These people have come forward at great personal risk to themselves & their families to provide thousands of affidavits of voting abnormalities and actual crimes that they witnessed happen on election night. The very fact that the other side is working so hard to hide all of this. Federal law requires transparency in our electoral process and our elections.” There is a federal statute that requires all the documents pertaining to the election to be maintained for 22 months following an election, for the very reason that it has to be completely auditable. A Federal Judge in October [in ATL] found all kinds of problems w/ the Dominion system that GA bought and crammed down for everybody across the state to use. That’s where the most problems have been, is in GA. Witnesses have come forward, there was supposedly a water leak that they shut down voting for. That was an abject lie. We have video of witnesses pulling suspect ballots out from under a table after they ran off all the observers. Somebody told me that one of the people that did that has told gov’t officials how it happened and what happened. But has that information been provided to the public? No. There is rampant voter fraud of all kinds. Federal violations of 5 years + more across the country by virtue of all the misconduct on election night. The flipping of votes by Dominion is even advertised, on their ability to do that, to run a fraction, to make a Biden vote count 1.26% and a Trump vote to only count 0.74%. They’ve done it before. They’ve done it in Venezuela. They done it in other foreign countries. They’ve done it in THIS country. We have evidence even that it was done in 2016 in CA to benefit Hillary or Bernie Sanders, and it’s been done in other local elections and smaller elections in different places. This is the only time it’s been this widespread, and the reason it didn’t work this time, they’ve been able to shave these votes for a long time, but the reason it didn’t work completely this time and they had to shut down in so many places was because so many Trump supporters poured out on the day of the election to vote for President Donald Trump in what was a LANDSLIDE victory, a historic victory, is because it BROKE the algorithm. That’s why they had to stop counting that night. That’s why they had to bring in ballots and try to back-fill. And it still doesn’t work, because there are still 100’s of thousands of more votes than there were voters to vote them. The math simply doesn’t add up. And if they had nothing to hide, why aren’t they providing transparency into the voting systems of the United States of America, the country that is founded upon the Rule of Law and is supposed to be above all this? It is absolutely the most appalling criminal operation in the history of our country.”
