KIRSTJEN NIELSEN OUT AS TRUMP’S DHS SECRETARY

Washington, D.C.

 

 

 

Homeland Security Secretary, Kirstjen Nielson resigned on Sunday evening after a meeting with President Trump. Nielson and Trump reportedly weren’t seeing eye to eye on how to move forward with border security. The New York Times (@NYTimes) published part of Nielson’s resignation letter

 

 

 

   “I have determined that it is the right time for me to step aside. I hope that the next Secretary will have the support of Congress and the courts in fixing the laws which have impeded our ability to fully secure America’s borders and which have contributed to discord in our nation’s discourse.”

 

 

Nielson has come under fire by the public and members of Congress for her child separation policy. The Trump Administration didn’t believe Nielson’s policy was strict enough. Ms. Nielson reportedly went to the White House on Sunday hoping to meet in an attempt to submit a plan for a “way forward.” She reportedly walked into the meeting with a list of things that needed to change in order for her to improve her relationship with the president. Instead of an agreement for a “way forward”, Ms. Nielson walked out of the meeting the same way Ned Stark walked out of his meeting with Joffrey Lannister. Ms. Nielson said she planned to stay on the job until Wednesday to help with the “transition.” In a tweet, Trump said that former Commissioner Of Customs & Border Protection, Kevin McAleenan would take over as acting Secretary to replace Ms. Nielson. Nielson’s departure was reported as a resignation. It’s more likely that she was canned. Trump and Nielson’s tumultuous history goes back to almost the time she got the job. An article by NEWSWEEK reported that Trump allegedly, used to call Nielson on the phone early in the morning to berate her about her handling of the situation at the border. Looks like that will be one less phone call she will have to fret about receiving in the future.

FORMER TRUMP ATTORNEY MICHAEL COHEN REPORTEDLY IN TALKS TO GRAB A PLEA DEAL WITH THE FEDS

MANHATTAN, NY

Former Trump personal attorney, Michael Cohen is reportedly in the process of copping a plea with the FEDS on Tuesday afternoon.

ABC News (@ABCNews) reported, the alleged plea deal involves crimes that Michael Cohen were personally involved in. ABC reported that the plea deal does include some jail time.

Michael Cohen had reportedly been under federal investigation for months, but no charges had been filed. At the moment, any comment about what Cohen will be charged with is strictly “guess-work”, as there has been no official word of charges as of yet. There is a court proceeding scheduled for 4pm Tuesday afternoon, in front of a federal judge. (About two hours from the time this is written). Legal analyst predict prosecutors will announce charges against Cohen at that time, or announce the plea deal. **Will update this post after the 4pm court appearance**

***UPDATE***

Michael Cohen plead guilty to 8 counts altogether. Michael Cohen also said in court that he made illegal campaign contributions “in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office.” Michael Cohen’s sentencing date has been set for December 12th.

SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN

WASHINGTON, DC

The Supreme Court has upheld Donald Trump’s travel ban with a 5-4 majority vote. The ruling holds a significant message. The ruling by the courts has basically shown Donald Trump and any other president moving forward, that no matter what you say out of your mouth, or the reason or real purpose behind a policy or law, if you add National Security to your argunent, the mostly conservative Supreme Court will uphold it. A very dangerous power to place in the hands of one man.

Trump called the ruling a “tremendous victory for the American people and the Constitution.” The ban has been revised several times as it made its way through the Circuit Courts before ultimately landing in the Supreme Court’s lap. The travel ban the Supreme Court approved this morning restricts travel from Iran, Syria, North Korea, Yemen, Libya, Venezuela, and Somalia. Justice Sonia Sotomayor blasted the court’s decision.

“The majority here completely sets aside the President’s charged statements about Muslims as irrelevant. That holding erodes the foundational principles of religious tolerance that the court elsewhere has emphatically protected, and it tells members of minority religions in our country that they are outsiders, not full members of the political community.”

TRUMP HITMEN, FOX NEWS CARRIES OUT “HIT JOB” ON PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

WASHINGTON, DC

 

 

 

No player on the Super Bowl winning Eagles team roster took a knee in protest during the playing of the national anthem during the regular season, playoffs, or Super Bowl. I know this, because I’m a hardcore fan of the Philadelphia Eagles and have seen damn near every regular, pre-season, and playoff game the Eagles have been involved in for over 20 years. Myself, and those who may not be Eagles fans are not the same. But let’s say that you’re not a hardcore Eagles fan like myself, and don’t know much about this team. Let’s even go a step further and say that you’re not a fan of football at all. Never even watched a full NFL game in your life. If a person you looked to defend, no matter what crazy thing came out of their mouths, told you that Eagles players were uninvited from attending the White House because the players on the team took a knee during the national anthem, you would probably believe what that person said without needing any proof whatsoever. Those who maybe thought they were a little smarter would search for proof in an attempt to validate their hero’s words for anyone who may be a non-believer. If that person was as smart as they claimed, they would do some real research and discover that their hero was a bold-faced liar. Those who weren’t so smart would dig for proof of their point and find this:

 

 

 

These are a few of the first images that pop up in a search when you google “Eagles kneel.” Anybody who knows anything about football knows that these pictures don’t fit the narrative of what Trump said about Eagles players disrespecting the flag and military by kneeling during the national anthem. We all know that during the playing of the anthem, players are standing very closely together side by side. Common sense would tell you that these photos could not have been taken during the playing of the national anthem. Fox News knew this when they decided to use pictures they found in a google search to try to bring some truth to Trump’s lying words. The crazy thing is, they didn’t care. They honestly thought they were going to get away with this blatant lie. Sure, many people who buy into the Fox propaganda on a daily basis took the bait and parroted the Fox message, like Fox knew they would, but an overwhelming number of people called Fox out and called this what it was……A HIT JOB. Make no mistake about it, this was a smear job on the Philadelphia Eagles by Fox News. Why? To attempt to make the words of a liar, truth. This is what Fox News does all day every single day, and they usually get away with it.

Of course, Fox News apologized for the so-called “error” hours later, but the damage had already been done. To the brain-dead, daily, Fox News viewers, their minds were already made up that this was the absolute truth. It was what the president of the United States said and it was what their most trusted news source, Fox News said.

 

The apology was weak and not really sincere, and like I said, the damage had already been done. An obvious lie had been fed to a brain-dead, naive audience as truth, and they quickly ran with the lie and parroted it over and over as truth. This is a hit job. Not even a good one, but still…..a hit job. Let’s be clear. This is not about the military. This is not about the national anthem. This isn’t even really about the right to protest. This whole thing is about Donald Trump and his fragile ego. Trump, always one to look for a photo-op and an opportunity to have people publicly kiss his ass, had his feelings hurt when he discovered that not enough players on the Eagles team were showing up for his liking. Out of a team with a 53-man roster and a coaching staff in the dozens, only about 10 people confirmed they were coming to the White House. That clearly was not a big enough ass-kissing session-photo op, for Trump. So Trump canceled the whole visit. In true Trump fashion, not only did he cancel the visit, but he felt a need to make the Eagles look like the bad guys in this whole thing to his supporters. What better way to make people look like the bad guy to a base that lives for fake patriotism, division, and racial conflict than to accuse people of being disrespecting to the very thing that group claims to hold so dearly? The flag and the military. Trump even attempted to shift the narrative of the “kneeling” narrative this afternoon after Fox caught the negative feedback over their lie pushing agenda.

No player on the Philadelphia Eagles team ever stayed in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem. Of course, Eagles fans already know that. So does Fox News. So does anyone with any common sense. Donald Trump has recklessly disrespected the NFL and its players on multiple occasions. Better yet, Donald Trump has, and still continues to use the NFL and its players as whipping toys whenever he needs to find a story to take the focus off of another story. Trump and his administration claims players don’t want to come to the White House because they are un-American. No, players don’t come to the White House because you are there. YOU ARE UN-AMERICAN.
