The American Dream

Why Is The Mainstream Media Freaking Out About What Trump Said About Other Countries So Much?

I wish that we lived in a society where profanity was not widely used.  Unfortunately, profanity seems to be virtually everywhere these days.  Our movies and television shows are filled with it, you can’t escape it in our classrooms and workplaces, and sometimes you will even hear it used by preachers and politicians.  I certainly don’t plan to use profanity when I go to Congress, but thanks to my previous experience in D.C. I know that it is an environment where foul language is frequently used behind closed doors.  At this point there is a tremendous amount of debate about what President Trump did or did not say, but if he did use a profane word it wouldn’t surprise me at all.  As  you will see below, there is a long history of presidents using profanity, and the only reason why this has become such a major controversy is because the left hates Trump so much.

We know that President Trump has a good heart, we know that he has been trying to keep the promises that he made to the American people, and we know that he is not politically-correct.  And whether he used some colorful language or not, the truth is that what Trump is alleged to have said was not really that controversial.  The following is how Tucker Carlson made this point on his show…

“President Trump said something that almost every single person in America actually agrees with,” Carlson said. “An awful lot of immigrants come from this country from other places that aren’t very nice. Those places are dangerous, they’re dirty, they’re corrupt, and they’re poor and that’s the main reason those immigrants are trying to come here and you would too if you live there.”

The Fox News host said that Trump’s use of the expletive “is not surprising” since he “uses them all the time,” but wondered why “virtually everyone in Washington, New York, and LA” is treating it like a “major event.”

But of course the Democrats are going to jump at any chance to demonize Trump, and they are going to try to get as much mileage out of this as they possibly can.

For example, just check out what U.S. Representative Luis Gutierrez is saying

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) said the comment shows that Trump “could lead the Ku Klux Klan in the United States of America.” He’s “somebody who could be the leader of the neo-nazis.”

And many in the mainstream media are treating this as if this was the biggest scandal to ever hit Washington.  On Thursday, the word “sh*thole” was uttered on CNN an astounding 36 times.

Donald Trump has never been a racist, he is not a racist now, and he never will be a racist.  Many in the African-American community are standing up for him and that includes the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  I believe that Alveda King’s response to this controversy sums things up quite well

“President Trump is not a racist and calling him a racist is outrageous and unjust. There are countries in Africa that are indeed hellholes.”

Yes, sometimes President Trump says things differently than we would say them.

But if he did use profanity, we would do well to remember that there is a very long history of profanity in the White House.  For example, Barack Obama once used very colorful language to describe Mitt Romney.  The following comes from Rolling Stone

“When President Obama called Mitt Romney a “bullsh*tter” in the pages of Rolling Stone earlier this year, it set off a brief firestorm. Defenders of the Republican candidate were shocked – shocked! – that the man holding the highest office in the land would resort to such language.

“In truth, the halls of the White House (like nearly every other house in the country, with the apparent exception of Romney’s) have heard no shortage of profanity over the decades.”

And many other top politicians throughout history have also used very crude language

  • Abraham Lincoln: “There is nothing to make an Englishman shit quicker than the sight of General George Washington.”
  • Barack Obama: “Obama really drew the ire of the pious, calling opponent Mitt Romney a ‘bullshitter.’ Sometimes the dirty word is the most precise.”
  • Joe Biden: “This is a big f**king deal.”
  • Dick Cheney: “Cheney reportedly told Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy to ‘go f**k [himself]’”
  • George W. Bush: “Commented on the presence of New York Times reporter Adam Clymer. Believing he had an audience of one, Bush called Clymer a ‘major-league asshole.’”
  • Barack Obama: “I don’t think I should take any sh*t from anybody on that, do you?”
  • Richard Nixon: “The Watergate tapes put the phrase ‘expletive deleted’ on the map.”
  • Lyndon Johnson: “I do know the difference between chicken sh*t and chicken salad,”
  • John F. Kennedy: “This is obviously a f**k-up.”

I understand that politics in America is a tough game, and in an election year it makes sense for the Democrats to exploit every opportunity that they possibly can.

But in the end, we should never forget that it is the Democrats that are leading us down a path to national suicide.  I really like how Mike Adams made this point in one of his recent articles…

The process of turning America into a Democrat-run sh*thole, not surprisingly, is already under way in certain parts of California, where the massive swaths of homeless tents and shantytown areas reflect how corrupt left-wing government has a “sh*thole effect” on destroying society. In fact, if you look around the world at the worst sh*thole countries, you’ll find something that shouldn’t be surprising: They’re all run by big, powerful governments that pursue insanely stupid economic policies and are steeped in corruption. They’re Democrats, in other words, although they might not be called Democrats in their home countries.

In 2018, we are going to be facing the most important mid-term elections in modern American history.

If the Democrats are able to take back control of either the House or the Senate, President’s Trump agenda will be completely stalled, and we cannot allow that to happen.

It is absolutely imperative that the Republicans remain in control, and it is equally as imperative that we get President Trump some more friends in Congress.

The first Republican primaries are just a few months away, and we desperately need everyone to get involved in this effort.  The clock is ticking, and the future of this nation is literally hanging in the balance.

Amazing Things Are Happening For Michael Snyder’s Campaign For Congress!

Yesterday I got back from the best campaign trip down south that we have had so far. It has been difficult for me to get to sleep these days, because I am incredibly fired up about the tremendous momentum that is building for our campaign. I am so thankful for those of you that have been donating and volunteering, because without you none of this would be possible. I thought that I was going to have to run as a “political outsider”, but so many members of the Idaho state legislature are now very enthusiastic about what we are trying to do. In fact, our campaign was just officially endorsed by Senator Dan Foreman. Dan is one of the top conservative voices in the entire state of Idaho, and to have him on our side is a major breakthrough.

If you are not familiar with Senator Foreman, the following are three short quotes from his Wikipedia entry

-“Daniel D. Foreman (born 1953) is a Republican member of the Idaho Senate. He represents the 5th district, which covers parts of Benewah and Latah counties.”

-“Foreman graduated from Bradley University in 1975. He served in the United States Air Force for 30 years, and later as a police officer with the Moscow Police Department.”

-“Foreman introduced several bills to the legislature during his first weeks in office, including one that would “classify abortion as first-degree murder — for the mother, as well as the doctor who performs the operation — except in cases where the mother’s life is endangered.” He also introduced a bill that would reduce Idaho’s sales tax from 6% to 5%, as well as two other tax bills.”

Senator Foreman is the “real deal”, and to have him endorse our campaign is a major league gamechanger.

Over the next four months I am going to spend a lot of time in Senator Foreman’s area and the rest of the district as well. If we want to win this thing, I have got to hit the campaign trail incredibly hard, and unfortunately traveling is not cheap. If you would like to help us with our campaign travel costs, I very much encourage you to consider donating to the campaign. If you would like to donate online, you can do so right here

http://ift.tt/2urdtoS

During my trip down south, I was also interviewed by Idaho Education News. They are not conservatives over there, and so I was quite concerned about how the article would turn out. Fortunately, the article turned out great and the thousands of people that will read it will learn that I am a “100 percent supporter of President Trump”. If you would like to check out the article, you can find it here.

On top of everything else, I was able to get interviews with the two biggest political talk radio hosts in the entire state of Idaho on the same day. On Thursday I was interviewed by Nate Shelman in the afternoon, but it was my interview with Kevin Miller in the morning that had conservatives buzzing all over the district. If you have not seen that interview yet, you can find it right here

Please share this video as widely as possible, because Kevin Miller is greatly respected by the conservative community here in Idaho.

We did several other events while we were down there, and a whole bunch more people indicated that they want to get involved in the campaign.

This is actually happening guys – we are actually on the verge of becoming the next member of Congress from Idaho’s first congressional district. But there are five other candidates in this race, and the primary is only four months away. We need your help more than ever, because without you we would never have enough resources to get across the finish line. If you believe in what we are trying to do, please help us today

http://ift.tt/2urdtoS

More than anything else, we need your prayers. We are in a full out sprint to election day, and we are doing our very best to work harder than everyone else. It is a grueling process, but we have got to put everything into this effort if we want to win.

I cannot thank all of you enough for all that you have done so far. You guys believed in me when nobody else did. At first the “political experts” here in Idaho didn’t think that we had a chance, but now they are starting to change their tune in a major way.

Four months from now, we are going to shock the entire country when we win this thing. But in order for that to happen, we need your help. We have a brief window of opportunity to take our government back, and we desperately need more good people in Congress. If you have followed my work for a long time, please help us with this endeavor.

Every generation of Americans has had to stand up for the cause of liberty, and now it is our turn. We must not abandon our Republic when it needs us the most, and I pray that you will decide to join our cause.

Any Republican That Will Not Pledge To Support Trump’s Border Wall Should Not Be Running For Congress

Now that Donald Trump is president, he is the national leader of the Republican Party, and anyone that disagrees with his most important policy proposals should not be running for Congress.  We need to send people to Washington that will help our president get things done rather than standing in the way.  For decades, illegal immigrants have been pouring across our unsecured southern border, and this has created havoc in communities all across America.  We must build Trump’s wall, and we must insist that every Republican that wants to run for a seat in Congress take a pledge to support the president in this endeavor.

Those of us that are pro-Trump are certainly not against immigrants.  After all, Trump’s own wife is an immigrant.  We just want everyone to come in through the front door, but right now we have a system of immigration that is completely backwards.  We have made it exceedingly difficult to try to come in through the front door, and meanwhile we have left the back door completely wide open.  Drug dealers, gang members, terrorists, sexual predators and other lawbreakers have taken advantage of our lack of security, and this must end immediately.

I am a 100% pro-Trump candidate for Congress, and if I am fortunate enough to win my race I will do whatever I can to get Trump’s wall built.  My stand is getting noticed all over the nation, and at this point big names such as Ann Coulter are supporting my campaign for Congress.

President Trump isn’t asking much.  According to Time Magazine, he has requested just 18 billion dollars over the next decade to extend and repair the current wall…

The Trump administration has proposed spending $18 billion over 10 years to significantly extend the border wall with Mexico, providing one of its most detailed blueprints of how the president hopes to carry out a signature campaign pledge.

The proposal by Customs and Border Protection calls for 316 miles (505 kilometers) of additional barrier by September 2027, bringing total coverage to 970 miles (1,552 kilometers), or nearly half the border, according to a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the matter.

In addition to that, Trump wants another 17 billion dollars in additional border security spending.  So in all, Trump is only asking for 33 billion dollars over the next ten years.  The following comes from the Daily Mail

The Customs and Border Protection document calls for a total of $33 billion in new border spending, including $18 billion for the wall, $5.7 billion for technology gear, $1 billion for road construction and maintenance and $8.5 billion for 5,000 new Border Patrol agents, 2,500 border inspectors and other personnel, the U.S. official said.

This is a very, very reasonable proposal.  But at this point the Democrats don’t seem likely to budge.  In fact, they are insisting on making DACA legislation a part of the upcoming budget agreement in January, but they aren’t willing to give Trump any money for a border wall in order to make that happen.

Fortunately, Trump is not going to be pushed around.  According to CNS News, Trump has made it abundantly clear that there will not be any action on DACA unless the Democrats are willing to agree to money for his border wall…

Democrats have made DACA legislation a priority for 2018, but in a Dec. 29 tweet, President Trump indicated there will be no legal status for illegal aliens who came to this country as children unless he gets his long-promised border wall.

“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!” Trump tweeted last Friday.

The fact that I am willing to stand with Trump is just one of the reasons why voters all over Idaho’s first congressional district are so excited about my candidacy.  In the most recent KIDO online survey I received more votes than all of the other congressional candidates combined, and we continue to pick up more momentum with each passing day.

We need to send a fighter to Washington, because the Democrats are going to continue to play hardball.  Just consider the recent words of House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley

“I think there’s a false premise here, in other words, equating security and border security with the DACA individuals themselves. They are not a security risk to the American people. They love this country. This is the country they know and love, and they are now in a state of limbo. And unless the president, who has promised to address this issue, works to make that happen in a clean bill, that’s what Democrats are looking for. A $40 billion wall is a waste of government money. … You can’t drive on it. You can’t live in it. You can’t do anything with it, and it really is just a waste of government resources.”

A border wall is most definitely not a waste of money.  It has been estimated that illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers more than 100 billion dollars a year, and a border wall would only cost a fraction of that.

Yes, we must work very hard to make our system of legal immigration a lot less complicated, but at the same time we must slam the back door completely shut so that everyone is forced to come in to our country through the front door.

That is where I stand, and I am not moving.

Sunday Is My 48th Birthday, And This Is What I Would Like To See Happen…

On January 7th, I will be 48 years old.  Each passing year seems to go by faster than the previous one, and I am still trying to figure out what happened to 2017.  No matter how hard we may try, we cannot stop the inexorable march of time, but we can choose what we are going to do with the time that we have been given.  Somebody once told me that life is like a coin – you can spend it any way that you want, but you can only spend it once.  In 2018, I am determined to spend my time on things that really matter.

Throughout my life, I have never really had huge birthday celebrations.  Even when I was a very young child, everyone is kind of “celebrated out” by the time early January rolls around.  If you have a birthday that comes very early in the year, then you probably know what I am talking about.  I never had the elaborate birthday parties that other children did, but that was okay.

This year, there will probably be more attention on my birthday than usual because I am running for Congress.  But what I want is not a fancy cake or some expensive presents.  Rather, what I would really like to see happen is for hundreds more of you to get involved in our campaign for Congress.  We are trying to take our country back, and the only way that is going to happen is if we all work together.  You can find our volunteer page right here, and we need people all over the country to get involved.  We need more people to help us distribute literature, to help us spread the word on social media, and to contribute financially to the campaign.

President Trump’s victory in November 2016 provided us with a once in a generation opportunity to reclaim our government.  But if pro-Trump candidates are soundly defeated in 2018, our momentum will be completely extinguished.

Many seemed to think that the war was over once Trump won, but the truth is that the war is only just beginning.  We are locked in a fierce battle with both establishment Democrats and establishment Republicans for the future of this nation, and if we lose we may never have this sort of opportunity again.

In my race, the primary is just over four months away, and whoever wins that primary is almost certainly going to be the next member of Congress because Democrats never win in this district.  At this point the race is totally wide open, and so you can make a tremendous difference by getting involved.

The stakes couldn’t be much higher.  If we do not take control of the Republican Party and take our government back, the following are just a few things that will happen as a result…

-Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, James Comey, Huma Abedin and John Podesta will never go to prison.

-The Swamp will never be drained.

-The RINOs will never be dethroned.

-The Wall will never be built.

-Planned Parenthood will never be defunded.

-Our veterans will continue to be treated like second class citizens.

-Entrepreneurs and small businesses will continue to be suffocated by red tape.

-We will continue to be dependent on foreign powers for our energy needs.

-The corruption in Washington D.C. will continue to get even worse.

-Obamacare will continue to be the law of the land.

-We will continue to go even deep into debt.

-Sanctuary cities will continue to flout federal law all over the nation.

-We will continue to see factories shut down and we will continue to see jobs shipped overseas.

-Federal judges will continue to shred the U.S. constitution and legislate from the bench.

-Federal bureaucrats will continue to micromanage every area of our lives.

-Following the 2018 mid-term elections, it is likely that establishment Democrats will team up with establishment Republicans and make an all-out effort to impeach President Trump.

At the end of the day, establishment Democrats and establishment Republicans are very much on the same side.  That is one of the deep, dark secrets that nobody is really supposed to talk about.  The “Uniparty” has been dominating D.C. for decades, and this is our moment to try to take control of our government away from them.

If you believe in what we are trying to do, please help us win in May.  I am competing against five opponents, and four of them are absolutely horrible.

If any of those four win, it will be a major setback for the Trump movement, and we cannot allow that to happen.

I know that so many of you are standing strong with President Trump, and the best thing that you can do to support Trump in 2018 is to support pro-Trump candidates for Congress.  I am a 100% pro-Trump candidate, and I need every Trump supporter that is reading this to help us out by donating at least 48 dollars for my 48th birthday.

I want to thank everyone that has helped us so far.  We are more than halfway through this race, but the most intense part by far is still ahead of us.  We are picking up more momentum with each passing day, and the fact that we are doing so well is literally freaking out our opponents.  I wish that I could tell you everything that we know, but at this point I still need to keep some things secret.

Idaho’s first congressional district is considered to be one of the safest districts in the entire country for Republicans, and so whoever wins this primary in May could easily be in Congress for the next 20 years.

Our campaign is potentially the only thing standing in the way of a major swamp monster taking this seat, and I cannot stress how critical the next couple of months are going to be.  We are asking for your help, because the battle for this open seat is going to be one of the most important political battles in America in 2018.

Thanks again for all that you have done to help this campaign, and please keep us in your prayers.

In Liberty,

Michael Snyder

There Have Been More Than 30,000 Documented Terror Attacks Worldwide Since September 2001

When are we going to say that enough is enough?  According to Act For America, more than 30,000 documented terror attacks have taken place around the world since September 11th, 2001.  And in case you were wondering, almost all of those terror attacks were committed by radical Islamic terrorists.  According to one website that tracks these things, in 2017 alone “there were 2035 Islamic attacks in 61 countries, in which 15,700 people were killed and 14,302 injured.”  Even though ISIS is on the ropes, Islamic terror continues to spread, and we must boldly confront this threat.

But instead, many western nations have been eagerly importing large numbers of young males from hotbeds of Islamic terror.  As a result, levels of crime are absolutely exploding.  Just check out the latest crime numbers from the city of London

For example, gun crime in London is up 15 percent, homicides are up 25 percent, including an explosion in youth homicide of 70 percent, robbery is up by more than a third.

Those numbers are extremely chilling, but there is more.  According to WND, the number of acid attacks in London has “soared exponentially” in recent years…

Among the most terrifying crimes in London are acid attacks, which have soared exponentially since 2014. There were 431 such attacks record in 2016 and police report they have become the tactic of first resort for some gangs.

Acid attacks also seem to be correlated to the large Muslim population in some areas of the city.

Of course London is far from alone.  Over in France, the chaos and violence never seems to end.  On New Year’s Eve, more than 1,000 vehicles were set on fire, and authorities are claiming that this is a victory because that number only “slightly exceeded” the figure from last year when 935 vehicles were torched…

New Year’s Eve celebrations in France have turned out to be not only a time of joy, but also a frantic spell for police and emergency service personnel who faced mass disorder across the country.

The number of vehicles torched during the festivities that spiralled out of control in Paris and other French cities have surpassed 1,000, the French Interior Ministry said in a statement reviewing the New Year’s Eve celebrations. The number of vehicle arson attacks “slightly exceeded” last year’s figures, when 935 cars were set alight, the ministry added.

Things are getting really bad elsewhere in Europe as well.

Over in Germany, one recent study concluded that the recent spike in crime in Germany has been caused primarily by an “influx of mostly young, male migrants”.  The following originally comes from Reuters

The recent influx of mostly young, male migrants into Germany has led to an increase in violent crime in the country, according to a government-funded study published Wednesday.

The study used figures from the northern state of Lower Saxony to examine the impact of refugee arrivals on crime in 2015 and 2016, a period when the number of violent crimes reported increased by 10.4 percent.

The authors concluded that 92 percent of the additional crimes recorded could be attributed to the increase in refugee numbers.

What is happening in these western European nations is completely and utterly obvious to us, but the politically-correct crowd is still in a horrifying state of denial.

For example, just check out the storyline of a new television movie in Germany

The TV movie “Break-out to the Unknown” (WDR/ARD Degeto), on Wednesday, 14 February 2018, at 8.15 pm, tells the tale of family fleeing a totalitarian system under life-threatening circumstances, from an unusual perspective: in the near future, Europe has collapsed into chaos. In many countries right-wing extremists have taken power. The formerly democratic state of Germany has become a totalitarian system that persecutes dissidents, Muslims and homosexuals.

As a lawyer, Jan Schneider (Fabian Busch) has taken the side of dispossessed victims. When he learns that the regime intends to put him in prison once more, he decides to flee. His goal is the South-African Union, which is enjoying political and economic stability after an economic boom. A cargo ship is to take him, his wife Sarah (Maria Simon) and both children Nora (Athena Strates) and Nick (Ben Gertz) together with other refugees to Cape Town, but the people traffickers put the passengers in boats that are far too small in front of the coast of Namibia.

And here in the United States, you can actually be arrested and prosecuted if you say the wrong things about radical Islam.  The following comes from Information Liberation

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra is attempting to prosecute 41-year-old Mark Feigin for criticizing Muslims on the Islamic Center of Southern California’s Facebook page in September 2016.

The Attorney General’s Office claims Feigin’s Facebook posts were “meant to annoy and harass” through “repeated contact by means of an electronic communication device” in violation of Cal. Penal Code § 653m(b) and should therefor not be protected by the First Amendment.

Have we gone completely and utterly insane?

We are trying to convince ourselves that radical terrorists that are committed to achieving world domination by violent means are actually solid citizens and will openly embrace us as friends if we will just treat them with kindness.

Meanwhile, the reality of the matter is that we are witnessing rape after rape and terror attack after terror attack.

In Sweden, violent gang rapes are becoming so common that incidents such as this one barely make a blip on the news anymore…

On January 21, 2017 in Uppsala, Sweden three men broke into a woman’s home armed with guns, tore off her clothes and gang raped her for three hours while livestreaming the whole attack on Facebook. Similar to other horrific rapes, the liberal mainstream media refused to unequivocally identify the offenders as Muslim immigrants. Jihad Watch reported that “The Swedish publication NyheterIdag says that the attackers were “nysvenskar,” that is, “new Swedes,” which is the establishment media euphemism for Muslim migrants.” A 21 year old woman came forward after she saw the Facebook broadcast and stated that she recognized one of the perpetrators who raped her 15 months earlier.

If you are “pro-woman”, you should be speaking out about this.  But instead, many have been trained to believe that they can’t stand up and defend these victims because it might not be “politically-correct” to do so.

The goal of radical Islam is to completely dominate the entire globe.  The intend to dominate us physically, mentally, emotionally, financially and spiritually.  Omar Ahmad, the founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), once made the following statement about what his organization’s ultimate goals are…

Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.

We are not going to allow these jihadists to install their totalitarian system in the United States.  They are the enemies of liberty and freedom, and we are going to fight their agenda every step of the way.

Members Of The D.C. Establishment Get Nervous As Trump Declares January ‘National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month’

Rats don’t like it when you start shining a light on them.  President Trump has designated January to be “National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month”, but most Americans don’t realize that Washington D.C. is actually one of the worst human trafficking hubs in the entire nation.  Silent horrors take place behind closed doors day after day, and nobody is really supposed to talk about it.  Fortunately, we now have a president that is willing to take bold action, and that is making many members of the D.C. establishment very, very nervous.

Washington D.C. has always attracted individuals of questionable moral character, and sexual exploitation in one of the realities of life in our capital city.  At this point things are so bad that even the Washington Post is speaking openly about it.  For example, the following is from a Washington Post article entitled “Washington D.C.’s serious sex-trafficking problem”

Right here in the nation’s capital, our most vulnerable residents — children — are subjected to sex slavery. Their stories don’t make the evening news or even warrant blurbs in your morning paper. But human trafficking is, and has been, a shadowy and seamy part of D.C. life.

The D.C. area has a much higher percentage of missing children than the nation as a whole, and I will discuss that more below.  First, I want to share with you a portion of the statement that the White House just issued

During National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, we recommit ourselves to eradicating the evil of enslavement. Human trafficking is a modern form of the oldest and most barbaric type of exploitation. It has no place in our world. This month we do not simply reflect on this appalling reality. We also pledge to do all in our power to end the horrific practice of human trafficking that plagues innocent victims around the world.

This is a very strongly-worded statement, and many are hoping that we finally have a president that is committed to ending this horrific practice in the United States once and for all.

And what Trump has accomplished so far is giving many of us great hope.  Here is more from the official White House website

My Administration continues to work to drive out the darkness human traffickers cast upon our world. In February, I signed an Executive Order to dismantle transnational criminal organizations, including those that perpetuate the crime of human trafficking. My Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons has enhanced collaboration with other nations, businesses, civil society organizations, and survivors of human trafficking. The Department of Health and Human Services has established a new national training and technical assistance center to strengthen our healthcare industry’s anti-trafficking response. The Department of State has contributed $25 million to the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery, because of the critical need for cross-nation collaborative action to counter human trafficking. The Department of Labor has released an innovative, business-focused mobile app that supports private-sector efforts to eradicate forced labor from global supply chains. And this month, I will sign into law S. 1536, the Combating Human Trafficking in Commercial Vehicles Act and S. 1532, the No Human Trafficking on Our Roads Act. These bills will keep those who commit trafficking offenses from operating commercial vehicles, improve anti-human trafficking coordination within Federal agencies and across State and local governments, and improve efforts to recognize, prevent, and report human trafficking.

You may live in an area of the country that does not have a problem with children being abducted, but in the D.C. area it has reached epidemic proportions.

In fact, NBC’s Richmond affiliate has reported that 20 percent of all missing children in the United States are from Virginia…

“When 20 percent of all missing kids in the U.S. are from Virginia, we have a problem,” said Smith.

Robert Smith works to educate families through Child Shield. He spends time in schools and speaks at community events teaching children from a young age about safety, encouraging parents and teens to have open and honest relationships, especially in an age of technology. Smith says with so many kids on social media, it’s important for parents to be up to speed and informed especially when it comes to their teenagers.

“We have 180 something kids missing for this year. Something is happening. I’m assuming 180 something kids didn’t just run away,” said Smith.

And independent researcher Den Skjult came up with nearly the exact same figure after doing his own research

In December of last year, Virginia resident and researcher, Den Skjult, did some number crunching using statistics provided on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). What he uncovered was that the rate of missing children per 100,000 people was disproportionately high in Virginia in 2016. In fact, Virginia topped the list for missing children per 100, 000 people doubling the rates in both New York and California. According to Den Skjult’s calculations, nearly 20% of all reported missing children in 2016 originated in Virginia.

In particular, kids living along the I-95 corridor are getting abducted at a very alarming rate.  Many believe that those children are ultimately taken to Washington D.C. or other major cities and are subjected to some of the most horrifying ordeals that you can possibly imagine.

We must put an end to this great evil, and we should be so thankful that we have a man like Donald Trump in the White House.  Just like all of us, he is absolutely sickened by human trafficking, and he is making the fight against this nightmarish practice one of his highest priorities.

Anyone that would treat children in such a manner deserves the greatest punishment possible, and let us hope that Trump and his team will be greatly successful in this effort to clean up our streets.

Why Hillary Clinton Needs To Go To Prison In 2018

In the United States, nobody is supposed to be above the law, and that includes our elected officials.  If top politicians are permitted to break the law over and over again and get away with it, that sends an absolutely terrible message to everyone else in our society, and it threatens the legitimacy of our entire system of justice.  Hillary Clinton has been caught red-handed mishandling classified documents, it appears that she greatly betrayed our nation during the Uranium One deal, evidence has emerged that she has committed gross violations of campaign finance law, and the very deep corruption at the Clinton Foundation is well known.  Hillary Clinton needs to be prosecuted and sent to prison, and as a member of Congress I will do whatever I can to help make that happen.

Let’s start by discussing Hillary’s mishandling of classified documents.  According to Fox News, there were classified documents among the 2,800 work-related emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop that the State Department released on Friday, and this is fresh evidence that Hillary Clinton broke the law…

The State Department on Friday released a batch of work-related emails from the account of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin that were discovered by the FBI on a laptop belonging to Abedin’s estranged husband, Anthony Weiner, near the end of the 2016 presidential campaign.

At least four of the documents released Friday are marked “classified.”

As we have seen in so many other cases of this nature, it does not matter if Hillary Clinton intended to mishandle classified documents or not.

All that matters is that she did so, and we have very clear evidence that she did.  As Bernard B. Kerik has pointed out, anyone else in the federal government that did what Clinton did would definitely be prosecuted…

The possession, transmission, and failing to secure these documents are all federal crimes that do not require intent. Why hasn’t someone been prosecuted? Any member of the , or would’ve been prosecuted in a second for a violation that substantial.

And we have also learned that emails from the State Department during the Trump administration also somehow ended up on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

How in the world did that happen?

We need answers, and someone needs to be held accountable for that.

As bad as the email scandal is, the Uranium One scandal may be even more troublesome for Hillary Clinton.

If you are not familiar with Uranium One, the following is a pretty good summary from the Christian Science Monitor

President Trump calls it the “real Russia story”: allegations that as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approved the sale of 20 percent of US uranium supplies to Rosatom, the Russian state nuclear company.

The sale was greased by $145 million in contributions to the Clinton Foundation from Canadian executives who benefited from the sale, according to these allegations.

Prosecutors at the Justice Department are now reportedly considering the appointment of a special prosecutor to look into the transaction.

I very much hope that a special prosecutor is appointed to look into Uranium One, because this appears to be an enormous can of worms.

Hillary Clinton also appears to have violated campaign finance law.  It turns out that her campaign helped fund the now infamous “anti-Trump dossier”, but she tried to keep that a secret from the FEC.  The following comes from Fox News

The revelation that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund a salacious anti-Trump dossier last year is raising new legal questions for the Clinton team — with a watchdog group filing a formal complaint alleging they hid the payments from public view.

The Campaign Legal Center filed the complaint Wednesday with the Federal Election Commission, accusing the DNC and Clinton’s campaign committee of breaking campaign finance law by failing to accurately disclose the money spent on the Trump-Russia dossier.

This is another instance where it is exceedingly clear that Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted.

So why aren’t members of Congress speaking up?

In just a few months, Republican primaries will be held all over the nation for the upcoming 2018 mid-term elections.

If a candidate for Congress will not publicly commit to do whatever they can to put Hillary Clinton in prison, do not vote for that individual.

Hillary Clinton is one of the most corrupt politicians that the United States has ever seen, and she needs to be brought to justice.

Personally, I would love to see a special prosecutor appointed to look into corruption at the Clinton Foundation.  If you doubt that the Clinton Foundation is corrupt, just consider the words of Ted Rall

More than half of the people who managed to score a personal one on one meeting with Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State donated money to the Clinton Foundation, either as an individual or through a company where they worked. “Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million,” the Associated Press reported.

Does that make Clinton corrupt?

Yes. It does.

The Clintons never intended for their “foundation” to help those in need.  Instead, it was used by the Clintons to live an outrageously luxurious lifestyle.  According to Ted Rall, only a very small fraction of the millions of dollars that the Clintons raised ever made it to the needy…

The Clintons extract millions of dollars in travel expenditures, including luxurious airplane accommodations and hotel suites, from their purported do-gooder outfit. They exploit the foundation as a patronage mill, arranging for it to hire their loyalists at extravagant six-figure salaries. Charity Navigator, the Yelp of non-profits, doesn’t bother to issue a rating for the Clinton foundation due to the pathetically low portion of money ($9 million out of $140 million in 2013) that makes its way to someone who needs it.

“It seems like the Clinton Foundation operates as a slush fund for the Clintons,” says Bill Allison of the Sunlight Foundation, a government watchdog group.

And of course everything that I have just discussed above is just the tip of the iceberg.

There is a very long string of crimes that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been involved in that goes all the way back to Arkansas in the 1980s.

If America is going to continue to be governed by the rule of law, the Clintons must be brought to justice.

As a member of Congress I will do whatever I can to help get the Clintons locked up, and I am calling on every other Republican to make the same pledge.

Our Most Important Campaign Deadline So Far Is Here – And Here Is The Shocking Reason I Am Not Asking For Any Money

The most important deadline that we have faced so far is at midnight on Sunday, but I am not going to ask you for any money. I just want to say thank you to everyone that has donated, volunteered and prayed over the past six months. Without all of your efforts, it would have been impossible for us to be within striking distance of victory here in Idaho’s first congressional district with just a little more than four months to go until election day. When I first announced that I would be running, many people told me that it would be impossible for a political outsider to win in this district, but we are proving the naysayers wrong. We are so far ahead of where we thought that we would be at this point, and our opponents are literally freaking out over how well we are doing.

As the December 31st deadline approaches, my opponents have been sending out email after email in a desperate scramble for money. The reason why I know this is true is because we are on all of their email lists.

But I have decided that we are not going to do the same thing. Yes, we need support just as badly as they do, but I am simply going to trust the Lord that the resources will come in. We have already told our supporters what our needs are, and we are going to trust that the Lord will move in the hearts of those that are supposed to give.

The stakes in this race are exceedingly high. As we look at the numbers, it appears likely that one particular opponent is likely to emerge victorious if I do not win next May. If he wins, it will be a complete and utter disaster for the Trump movement.

This particular opponent fought to keep Donald Trump out of the White House, his campaign has repeatedly attacked my faith, and by lying over and over again he has demonstrated that he simply does not have the moral character to serve in Congress.

Members of Congress make decisions that affect every man, woman and child in the entire country, and if this particular individual wins this open seat, the swamp in Washington D.C. will get deeper, wider and much more icky.

So what can you do to help? Well, what we need more than anything right now are volunteers. If you would like to volunteer for the campaign, you can do so right here

http://ift.tt/2zQHTnf

There are ways to get involved no matter where you may live. One of our top priorities right now is enlisting “social media warriors”. Facebook and other social media websites are the marketplaces of today, and we need people that will help us spread our pro-Trump message online.

So what does a “social media warrior” actually do? Well, first of all we need people to help us promote the material that we are constantly posting on our official campaign Facebook page. If we can get a core group of people to visit the page daily and like, share and comment on the material that we post, that will make an enormous difference.

You see, when a Facebook post starts getting even just a few likes, shares and comments, Facebook’s algorithm notices that people are engaging with that particular piece of content and begins showing it to even more people.

So if we could even get just 10 of you to like, share and comment on the material on our Facebook page on a daily basis, that could double or triple the number of voters here in Idaho that each item reaches.

Secondly, we need “social media warriors” that would be willing to serve as ambassadors for our campaign all over Facebook. Over the next four months there will be endless debates about this campaign wherever Idaho politics is being discussed on Facebook, and we need representatives from our campaign engaging in those discussions.

Don’t worry – you don’t have to be an expert to do this. You just need to know our basic positions on the issues, and you can find them right here and right here. Wherever Idaho politics is being talked about, we want our people to be there to help share our pro-Trump message.

If you live in Idaho’s first congressional district, there is another way that you can help. Starting this month, we are going to have teams go door to door passing out campaign material all over the district. We have a very specific plan for doing this, and if you are interested we very much encourage you to attend one of our upcoming strategy sessions. We will be holding one in northern Idaho, one in central Idaho and one in south Idaho, and please stay tuned to our campaign website for the date and location for each event.

More important than anything else I have just mentioned, we need prayer. The Lord has been raising up intercessors from coast to coast, and one of the themes that keeps coming up over and over again is that this is a spiritual conflict. Just like the presidential election, this is really shaping up to be a battle of good vs. evil, and there are times when I have really felt the strain.

So please pray for us. This has been a very challenging race for both Meranda and I, and we truly had no idea how vicious and evil our opponents would be when we first got into this. We value our reputations very, very highly, and for someone to make up lies about our faith and to drag our good names through the mud just to win an election is absolutely repugnant to everything that we stand for.

The good news is that the backlash against those that are dragging our names through the mud has been tremendous, and all of the garbage that has been thrown our direction has just made it more likely that we will win.

From this moment forward, it will be a mad sprint to the finish line on May 15th. I would like every single one of you to be part of this team, and we have 17 different ways that you can get involved on our volunteer page.

The Lord has shown me that I cannot do this alone. It is going to require a total team effort to win this thing, and if we all trust in Him and we all work together, then I truly believe that all things are possible.

In Liberty,

Michael Snyder

Pro-Trump Candidate For Congress Michael Snyder Applauds Donald Trump For A Very Successful First Year In Office

Many were anticipating that Donald Trump would be just like every other president once he got into office, but Trump has proved the skeptics wrong.  Normally, professional politicians make all sorts of wild promises while they are running for office, but once they win they actually deliver on very few of them.  We have seen this happen over and over and over again, and a lot of people fully expected Donald Trump to follow the same pattern.  Fortunately for the American people, Donald Trump is trying very hard to be a man of his word, and we should greatly applaud him for that.

Not since the Reagan administration have we seen a president do so many positive things in a single year.  The Washington Examiner has compiled a list of 81 major accomplishments during Trump’s first year that you can find right here, and WND has compiled an even larger list of 170 major accomplishments right here.

Of course there is so much work that still needs to be done, and that is one of the reasons why I am running as the pro-Trump candidate for Congress in Idaho’s first congressional district.  Once I win my race, I intend to be President Trump’s best friend in Congress, and I will work tirelessly to implement the Make America Great Again agenda.

The mainstream media would have us believe that Donald Trump is a deeply unpopular president, but that is not the case at all.  In fact, Donald Trump’s current approval rating of 46 percent is exactly equal to Barack Obama’s approval rating at the end of his first year in office

Much has been made about President Donald Trump’s relatively low approval ratings, but Trump has ended his first year in office on par with his predecessor Barack Obama.

A Rasmussen poll released on Thursday put Trump at a 46 percent approval rating and a 53 percent disapproval rating.

On the same date at the end of Obama’s first year in office — December 28, 2009 — Obama was sitting at a 47 percent approval rate and a 52 percent disapproval rate. Just one day later, on December 29, Obama’s approval rating dropped to 46 percent.

The difference is that Donald Trump’s approval rating is actually rising, while Obama’s was steadily falling all throughout 2009.

As Donald Trump continues to keep his promises, we should expect that his approval rating will continue to rise.

Let me give you just one example.  During the presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly promised to “bomb the hell out of ISIS”, and that is precisely what he did.  As a result, this was the worst year ever for ISIS, and at this point the terror organization has lost 98 percent of the territory that it captured while Barack Obama was in the White House…

ISIS has lost 98 percent of the territory it once held — with half of that terror group’s so-called “caliphate” having been recaptured since President Trump took office less than a year ago, U.S. military officials said Tuesday.

The massive gains come after years of “onerous” rules, when critics say the Obama administration “micromanaged” the war and shunned a more intensive air strategy that could have ended the conflict much sooner.

This is just one area where President Trump is getting things done.  If we wanted to talk about all of them, we would literally be here all day.

But the big question is whether Trump will be able to keep this momentum going.  The 2018 mid-term elections are rapidly coming up, and the Democrats are hoping to take back control of either the House or the Senate.  If they are able to get control of either one, Trump’s agenda will be stopped dead in Congress.

On the other hand, pro-Trump forces are beginning to take control of the Republican Party from coast to coast, and if we are able to sweep dozens of pro-Trump candidates to victory all over the nation next year we could have the opportunity to fundamentally alter the character of the federal government for the next several decades.

It starts with the Republican primaries which will be held around the country in just a few months.  If pro-Trump candidates don’t win those primaries, we won’t even have anyone decent to vote for by the time November 2018 rolls around.

So please support pro-Trump candidates wherever they are running.  Personally, there is no incumbent in my race, and so it is completely wide open.  This is a golden opportunity for pro-Trump forces to pick up a seat in Congress, but I can’t do it alone.  We very much need more support and more volunteers, because there are five other candidates running and it is going to be a very tough battle.

It has been a great year for the Trump movement, and let us all congratulate President Trump for overcoming so many obstacles and having such a great first year.

But this is just the beginning of the battle, and I believe that the upcoming mid-term elections in 2018 are going to be the most important in modern American history.

Donald Trump Has Become Such A Hero In Israel That He Is Going To Have A Train Station Named After Him

When Donald Trump decided to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, everyone knew that he was going to get a tremendous amount of criticism from the rest of the world.  In fact, things got so crazy that even the Pope was criticizing him.  But in Israel, Trump is now regarded as a national hero.  Large signs with the message “God Bless Trump” have gone up all around Jerusalem, and now we have learned that a new train station that will be constructed very close to the Western Wall will actually be named after Trump.  The following comes from the Jerusalem Post

A train station that will be built next to the Western Wall will be named after US President Donald Trump.

The decision was made by Transportation Minister Israel Katz, who said: “The Western Wall is the holiest place for the Jewish people, and I decided to name the train station that leads to it after president Trump – following his historic and brave decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.

That is truly a tremendous honor.  Normally, you would expect permanent landmarks to only be named after great national leaders.  Here in the United States, there are a few landmarks and monuments named after foreign leaders, but not too many.  So for Trump to get this kind of recognition in such a historic area of Jerusalem just shows how much his recent decision meant to the Jewish people.

Of course it is going to take quite a bit of time before this train station is actually built.  Current plans call for a 3 kilometer tunnel to be built under Jerusalem, and any sort of construction that takes place underneath the holy city inevitably ends up being quite complicated.  Here is more from the Jerusalem Post

Yediot Aharonot reported on Tuesday that Katz approved the construction plans for the train, that will include a 3 km. tunnel from the Umma (nation) station at the entrance to the city to the Cardo in the Jewish Quarter.

Katz said that he sees the project of extending the length of the railway from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as the most important national project, and ordered officials in the Transportation Ministry to define it as a top priority mission.

As I wrote about yesterday, the UN General Assembly recently voted 128 to 9 against Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  Of course that vote has no sort of legal significance, and the Trump administration is warning that the countries that voted against the U.S. may see their foreign aid reduced.

But another thing that Trump’s decision has done is to embolden other nations that would also like to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  Guatemala has already followed suit, and there are reports that “at least 10 other countries” may do so very soon…

Following Guatemala’s announcement Monday that it would move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, at least 10 other countries are in talks to move their own missions, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely said.

In an interview with Israel Radio, she declined to say which states Israel was speaking with, but Channel 10 reported that the next country likely to announce an embassy move was Honduras.

Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was one of the most historic things to happen in the Middle East in decades, and Trump’s popularity in the land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is now off the charts.  In fact, it is being reported that “God Bless Trump” signs have been going up in major cities all across the country.  For example, someone posted a photo of one of these signs in a neighborhood in Jerusalem on Twitter

And other historic events have been taking place in Israel lately as well.  Just check out what Breaking Israel News is reporting…

A scene straight from the Temple of Solomon was recreated on Tuesday evening when Kohanim lit the menorah, but even more wondrous than this sight was the fragrance that accompanied the event: for the first time in 2,000 years, incense was burned in the Biblically prescribed manner.

The Temple reenactment took place in the Gan Tekuma park adjacent to the Jewish Quarter inside of Jerusalem’s old city walls at 5:00 PM, just after sunset. The Kohanim (Jewish men of priestly descent) were dressed in priestly garments as described in the Bible.

We are seeing things happen in the land of Israel that a whole lot of people never thought that we would see, and many believe that the pace of significant events will pick up even more as we head into 2018.

But as jubilant as people are right now, they need to understand that conflict is on the horizon and that war could erupt in the Middle East at literally any moment.
