Joe Angione Live Interview on Freedom in America
Latest Edition 1/18/20
A Senate verdict to convict President Trump on Pelosi’s articles of impeachment could easily provoke civil war. It would draw the deadly battle lines between conservatives and liberal-leftists that could be the kick-off to bloodshed across the nation. Likewise, an acquittal of Trump might also begin this terrible conflict.
What can be done to save our great nation? Personal strength, firm commitment... and prayer...prayer... and more prayer are the only answers. God’s intervention is urgently needed. Without our prayers, petitions and pleas will he save us? We don’t know. Maybe we shouldn’t know...except that God wants us to initiate our own deliverance. If we don’t ask; we won’t get. It could be as simple as that. He’s waiting for our nationwide call for help. If you value your life and freedoms...Don’t disappoint Him.
Democrat lies and resistance to America’s needs approach treason
We’ve spent a full year listening to the lies, and suffering through the resistance to urgent legislation that has typified the Democrat (“Demonrat”) control of the House of Representatives. What began as ”Trump derangement syndrome” has escalated into acts that directly subvert the needs of the people. Worse, they are blatant attempts to destroy Trump through tactics that clearly “aid and abet” the enemies of the United States.
The U.S. is currently not officially at war with Iran but, nevertheless, we are, in reality, at war with Iran, and have been for years. Whether or not Congress has officially declared war, makes no difference. The glaring fact remains. Iran has participated in the deaths of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of our forces in the Middle East.
Doing the killing for Iran is its Quds force of specially trained and experienced saboteurs and murderers who are pledged to bring “death to America.” They are the brutal tool of Iran’s ayatollahs and are supplemented by surrogates, such as Hamas and local Iraqi terrorist groups. They’ve continued to attack U.S. installations in Iraq as well as our forces housed on Iraqi bases. Strangely, Iran maintains friendly ties with the Iraqi government, but works to kill any Iraqi who sides with the United States.
Just recently, President Trump, acted to protect America under legislation governing his war powers. He executed Iran’s top terrorist general, Qasem Soleimani. President Trump used the 2002 congressional authorization for the war in Iraq to launch the strike in Baghdad that killed Iran’s most senior military leader.
Trump’s war powers remain in effect. Although Demonrats argue these war powers are unconstitutional, they remain on the books. And so, Trump had every right to do what he did... just as President Obama had the right to terminate Osama bin Laden...just as President Bush had the right to capture, then get the Iraqi government to prosecute and execute former Iraq president, Saddam Hussein.
The treacherous Demonrats, led by Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Jerry Nadler, Adam Schiff, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren have decided that the termination of Soleimani was illegal...an international crime. They think that simply condemning Soleimani’s execution as a crime makes it a crime. The facts are usually directly the opposite of what the Demonrats claim.
What the Demonrats are really upset about is not being read into Trump’s plan to take out Soleimani before the event occurred. They feel slighted. That, on top of all the things they hate about this president, has united and encouraged them to stand on the threshold of treason by both verbally and, in writing, aiding and abetting a known and declared enemy of the United States.
Their brushes with treason were given official approval in the House of Representatives when, quickly following Soleimani’s execution, Nancy Pelosi pushed the House into passing a resolution preventing the president from launching retaliations on a powerful enemy without first obtaining approval in Congress supporting such retaliation.
Demonrats persist in weakening the power of the president to defend the nation. But who is better equipped than he, along with his top advisors at the Department of Defense, the Department of State and from our intelligence services to decide how and when the Commander-in-chief should act to protect the American people?
The president has shown admirable restraint in the face of outrageous Iranian provocations, but he must be free to act when American lives are at stake and must be defended.
Yet, less than 36 hours after the world's most malignant state sponsor of terrorism fired 16 ballistic missiles at U.S. soldiers inside Iraq, Speaker Pelosi had brought a War Powers Resolution to a House vote. Its purpose is to handcuff the president when defending America and declares: "Congress hereby directs the President to terminate the use of United States Armed Forces to engage in hostilities in or against Iran or any part of its government or military."
What a huge gift to the ayatollahs. Pelosi’s resolution is pure nonsense...folly of the first order...providing cover to an enemy committed to bringing “death to America.” We should be thankful that the resolution is not binding on the president.
When a reprisal is warranted because of attacks on our forces and our citizens, it must be planned in secret--so as not to be leaked to the enemy--and then unleashed upon the right time and place and on the appropriate persons to inflict sufficient suffering on the enemy with the objective of stopping future attacks against our forces..
This can’t be achieved when Congress has to be advised, then deliberate on a reprisal and finally, after much time is lost, vote on its “legality.” Everyone knows that nothing remains secret in Washington for more than a day, and then it’s repeatedly leaked to the media and the news just as quickly reaches the enemy. This disastrous series of delays would guaranty that our military response becomes an utter failure.
Diplomacy has done virtually nothing to end the dangerous conflict between the U.S. and Iran that began back in 1979, when an Islamic theocracy violently opposed to democracy, took power in Iran. In fact, it was President Reagan who in 1988 launched the first military retaliation against Iranian aggression.
Reagan’s “Operation Praying Mantis” was an attack by U.S. forces within Iranian territorial waters in retaliation for the Iranian mining of the Persian Gulf during the Iran–Iraq War and the subsequent damage to an American warship. His retaliation destroyed half of Iran’s Navy forcing them to withdraw to lick their wounds and they remained quiet for a long time.
Radical, violent Islam distains diplomacy... regarding it as a sure sign of weakness in an opponent. It emboldens them to acts of greater aggression. Strength, like that shown by President Reagan and now by President Trump, is the only thing that protects us from future Iranian nuclear missile strikes on our homeland.
It’s quite clear--since the termination of General Soliamani, and Trump’s threats to make Iran pay dearly for causing more U.S. deaths—that Iran has backed off. It now makes sure that new attacks on our forces in Iraq bring no serious physical harm to U.S. personnel.
Although Iran’s recent missile attacks on U.S- Iraqi military installations have caused mild symptoms of concussion in 11 American troops, so far, Iran’s few incursions against our military in the area have been pitiful attempts to scare us rather than actually hurt us. The concussions suffered by a few of our troops are nothing to go to war about They’re simply “face-savers” for the ayatollahs to placate the Iranian people. And, good news, they backed fired when Iranian military incompetence accidentally shot down a Ukrainian jet liner killing all 176 passengers on board. The people of Iran were not happy about this unfortunate disaster. They’re still protesting in Tehran, calling the ayatollahs their real enemies and shouting for their resignations.
Iran’s leaders know Trump means business with his promises of punishing retaliations...and they can’t afford to go to war with America. Strength protects us. Our decades-long diplomatic efforts with Iran have only weakened us in the eyes of one of our worst, boldest enemies.
Remember: to continue meeting Iran’s aggression strictly with diplomatic measures—that have never worked before—falls within the definition of insanity. To believe that doing the same thing, over and over, will produce different results is the mark of dangerous mental instability...and also grave cowardice. Trump must not be convicted in the Senate; he must be re-elected in November.
Peace through strength is the only thing that keeps us safe and free. If you agree, please tell your representatives in Congress...Donald Trump must remain President of the United States for two full terms.
Personal sacrifice needed to stop migrant invasions
It seems that every time President Trump decides to do something unconventional to stop the invasion of hundreds of thousands of migrants across our southern border, the Demon-Rats and their media slaves begin scare campaigns to set the public against the president.
When Trump decided to declare a national emergency to get money to build a wall, the Demon -Rats and their media bootlickers (lets simply call them all the Deep State) shouted that he was violating Article One of the U.S. Constitution, mis-using funds needed somewhere else, and creating a situation where some future Democrat president would use a national emergency to pass the “green new deal” into law. Ridiculous.
Just recently, when he said he’d close the border with Mexico as a last resort for ending Mexico’s support for migrant invaders by assisting them in crossing Mexico to overrun our country, the deep state unleashed a wave of messages telling Americans of all the Mexican fruits and vegetables and other products from that country that would no longer be available in the U.S. And they attempted to terrify business people about all the trade they’d lose with Mexico.
The deep state knows how very spoiled and selfish many Americans are when it comes to product availability and low prices. They want instant gratification that’s dirt cheap. Tell them that strawberries or tomatoes won’t be on store shelves for a time, or will cost a lot more when supplied from somewhere other than Mexico, and you’d think their life depended on these foods or perhaps on some seafood item caught by Mexicans off their coasts.
Rationing toughened America’s “greatest generation.” Few of us remember the stringent rationing of food items and many other products that was necessary to help win World War II. Our parents and grand-parents took that scarcity in stride, knowing it was vital to ensuring their freedom from terrible enemies. And none of them died because they were short of anything.
But today, too many of us are selfish and unwilling to sacrifice anything to protect the land of the free and the home of the brave. We understand that American lives may be lost in fighting for our freedom. But when it comes to some trivial thing we like to put on our dinner table, we won’t give it up without raising a big stink.
And what about American businesses that may suffer losses because they can no longer trade with Mexico? So what about them? Let them help themselves by finding new products to sell and new markets to serve. No one has guaranteed them a right to survive forever. No one ever guaranteed me a right to a job or permanent employment. No one has guaranteed that right to anybody.
So suck it up America! We need border protection whatever the cost. Get creative. Become inventive in solving your problems without the government having to guarantee you anything other than your natural, basic rights to life and liberty. In this day and age, as always, personal sacrifice must be accepted by everyone if America is to continue to exist.
President Trump, close the border for as long as needed. Courageous, selfless Americans will deal with the consequences.
White House salaries:
Trump saves tax money;
Obama pissed it away~
It was revealed that, on Friday, February 15th, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees.
The report also said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary; instead he donated it to an amazing patriotic cause.
The report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money than Obama was. The total annual White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million vs. $60.9 million under Obama, a savings of $25.1 million.
...Here are some other key findings:
There are 140 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies.
Thirty-nine fewer staffers are also dedicated to assisting The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently, there are only five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump compared to forty-four staffers who served Queen Michelle Obama in 2009.
However, it's what the report said Trump did with this salary that has everyone talking. Instead of taking his salary, Trump donated all $400,000 to the Department of the Interior where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries. That’s amazing. It's so great to have a president who loves our brave military men and women so much.
As you might have guessed: the administration’s announcement about employees and their salaries received virtually no attention in the liberal media.
The new Nancy Pelosi
House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, isn’t courageous or clever enough to curb Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’ asinine rants about a “Green New Deal,” and now her support for a radical Muslim congresswoman, Ilhan Omar, who repeatedly attacks Jewish-Americans and our government’s loyalty to Israel.
Pelosi’s so afraid AOC will take over leadership of the leftist, progressive wing of the Democrat party. She hasn’t got the guts to stand up against the growing stupidity and anti-semitism of her party’s socialist-driven freshman members. Legislative leaders like Pelosi, who won’t challenge dumb-ass ideas that threaten to become destructive laws--and their obvious hatred for Jews--are the “gifts that keep on giving” Donald Trump the power to storm into his second term as president.
Meantime, AOC, the “twitty,” former bartender from the Bronx who know far more about drink “mixology” than she knows about economics and good international relationships, has turned the Democrat Party into an evil, sick joke. Long live Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. And don’t you just love her lipstick that appears to be applied with a plasterer’s trowel. OMG…how could Democrats have sunk so low and become so brainless?

Evil Pelosi teaches how to smear Republicans
Many wouldn't believe it unless they actually saw it happen. Here's a video showing House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, teaching fellow Democrats (Demonrats) how to blatantly use lies to smear Republican opponents. She explains how easy it is to do when you have no morals and no conscience. Her instructions are all based on those of the most successful liar/agitator of all times, Saul Alinsky.
Watching this short video should give you every reason not to vote for any Democrat candidate for public office.

Clint Eastwood, one of Hollywood's few conservatives, sees through the bull crap the movie industry puts out regarding gun control and what's driving America to violence. At 89, his mind can still boil things down to the simple, basic truths about how the nation has allowed progressive ideology to screw us up big time. If we, the people, down wake up and work hard to reverse all the wrongs we've contributed toward destroying America's greatness, we will not survive for another decade. Please take Clint's 19 words to heart and put them into practice.
Don’t let Islamists control America
In spite of CAIR’s terrible attack on American Constitutional law and religious freedom, Democrat Congresswomen like Illan Omar and Rashida Tlaib embrace radical Islamist philosophy. Just like CAIR’s Omar Ahmad, they, too, are here to convert the nation--that means you and me--into radical Muslims who will accept America as an Islamist Caliphate. The beliefs of these U.S.-based Islamists are the same as those who are winning the battle to destroy the Christian-based culture of Western Europe. Islamist fundamentalist nations, such as the middle eastern nations of Iran and Syria, cannot hide the inhuman tyranny that is at the heart of an Islamist Caliphate. This must not be repeated here.
New Salvadoran president takes blame for migrant caravans
Fox News reports that the newly elected president of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele, has taken responsibility for the migrant caravans exiting his country for the U.S., and also for the sad deaths of Salvadorians, Oscar Alberto Martinez and his daughter, who perished while attempting to cross the Rio Grande river.
President Bukele said the onus is on his government to make the country a safer place -- and one “where migration is an option, not an obligation." He took office just a month ago and promised to make El Salvador “a safer and better place”...and that “his government is responsible for fixing the problems that have forced hundreds of thousands of people to flee in the first place.”
Bukele also told Sky News, owned by the Fox organization, that his government will work to "make our country more prosperous and create jobs. So, if people have an opportunity for decent jobs, a decent education, a decent health care system and security, I know that forced migration will be reduced to zero," he said.
Although Bukele accepted blame for his country’s forcing the caravans to leave for the U.S., he went on to say that he did condemn the treatment of migrants in the United States and Mexico. This was totally unfair. More than 35,000 families from El Salvador were rescued by our Border Patrol agents at our southern border in the first eight months of fiscal year 2019.
Bukele should understand that it’s virtually impossible to accommodate these Salvadorians and those from other countries—more than 100,000 each month--in the U.S. and lodge them all in comfortable, uncrowded conditions. Some may be sleeping on the floor, eating the most basic foods available, and often lack recreational opportunities. But, we took them in when El Salvador threw them out. Without our compassionate acceptance, they would have died for lack of any assistance at all.
