Bannon: Corker Should ‘Resign Immediately’ After Revealing GOP Establishment Wants to Nullify ’16 Election

Little Bobbie Corker will not resign as he has no honor as he is an establishment swamp monster.

The Associated Press

Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon called on Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) to “resign immediately” on Monday evening after Corker revealed on Sunday that Bannon was right when Bannon said the Republican establishment wants to “nullify the 2016 election” in which Donald Trump won the White House by aggressively running on an economic nationalist agenda.

Corker got into a Twitter spat with Trump on Sunday, tweeting that, “It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”

He then told the New York Times that “except for a few people, the vast majority of our caucus understands what we’re dealing with here.”

Appearing on Fox News’ Hannity, Bannon said that Corker “is an absolute disgrace” and should “resign immediately” and allow a real conservative like Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) to be appointed if he has “any honor, any decency.” Bannon said Corker decided to not run for reelection “because he saw what happened in Alabama” and knows he would “get crushed in a primary.”

“He doesn’t have the guts to get back in the race,” Bannon added.

The Times wrote that Corker “seemed to almost find cathartic satisfaction by portraying Mr. Trump in terms that most senior Republicans use only in private” and was “all but inviting his colleagues to join him in speaking out about the president.”

Corker told the Times about the “tremendous amount of work that it takes by people around him to keep him in the middle of the road.” Previously, Corker has said that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly “help separate our country from chaos.” He has also questioned Trump’s fitness to be president.

Corker’s comments proved that Bannon was correct when he told CBS anchor Charlie Rose on 60 Minutes that the “Republican establishment is trying to nullify the 2016 election.”

“I think Mitch McConnell, and to a degree, Paul Ryan. They do not want Donald Trump’s populist, economic nationalist agenda to be implemented,” Bannon added. “It’s very obvious.”

Bannon also told Rose that Ryan and McConnell will not help Trump implement the agenda that got him elected “unless they’re put on notice. They’re gonna be held accountable if they do not support the President of the United States. Right now there’s no accountability. They do not support the president’s program. It’s an open secret on Capitol Hill. Everybody in this city knows it.”

Bannon told Hannity that he is declaring war against the “establishment, globalist clique” on Capitol Hill that opposes Trump’s agenda. He added that “nobody’s safe” in 2018.

Bannon’s first battle outside of the White House against the establishment was in the Alabama GOP Senate runoff. Voters in Alabama realized that the Republican establishment lawmakers in Washington, DC were not on their side, and that is why they voted for conservative grassroots candidate Roy Moore over establishment Senator Luther Strange even though Trump had endorsed Strange. Corker, as the Washington Postreported, in fact begged Trump “to visit Alabama and campaign alongside Strange in the closing days of the runoff campaign.” But Trump reportedly “now partly blames Corker for encouraging him to get involved in a contest that has hurt his political standing,” according to the Post.

Though Trump ultimately campaigned for Strange, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s message that a vote for Moore would be a vote for the agenda that got Trump elected resonated across the state.

“A vote for Judge Moore isn’t a vote against the president,” Palin said while campaigning for Moore. “It’s a vote for the people’s agenda that elected the president.”

Bannon, who had a whiteboard with all of Trump’s campaign promises scrawled on it, is now seeking to find more economic nationalist candidates who will support Trump’s agenda instead of the GOP establishment’s.

Axios national political reporter Jonathan Swan reported that “Bannon and his allies are planning a hostile takeover of the Republican Party” and only Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will get a free pass.

According to Bloomberg News, Bannon will “support only candidates who agree to two conditions: They will vote against McConnell as majority leader and they will vote to end senators’ ability to block legislation by filibustering.”

The Bloomberg report noted that “Bannon plans to support as many as 15 Republican Senate candidates in 2018, including several challengers” to incumbents who are “some of McConnell’s most reliable supporters in the Senate” like Sens. Dean Heller (R-NV), John Barrasso (R-WY), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Deb Fischer (R-NE).

“McConnell himself won’t be up for re-election until 2020, but by targeting his supporters, Bannon might be able to force him from leadership in the Senate,” Bloomberg News pointed out.

Breitbart’s Matt Boyle wrote that “movement leaders view establishment Republicans and Democrats alike as a force blocking, slow-walking, or stonewalling the agenda that President Donald J. Trump campaigned on, and aim to elect new voices by riding a new economic nationalist electoral wave in 2018 meant to mirror and surpass what happened in previous wave elections like 2010—which saw the rise of the Tea Party.” He noted that some are referring to this “distinct slate of U.S. Senate and House candidates” as the “The League of Extraordinary Candidates”

“We’re planning on building a broad anti-establishment coalition to replace the Republican Party of old with fresh new blood and fresh new ideas,” Andy Surabian, a senior adviser to the Great America Allia

Fail: Montana Democrats Distract from Sen. Jon Tester’s Gun Control Vote

3 Comments

H/T Breitbarts Big Government.

Politifacts like Snopes has zero credibility.

In 2013 Senator Jon Tester (D-Mont.) voted for a body of gun controls pushed by Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Montana Democrats are now employing a bait-and-switch tactic to get Tester re-elected in 2018.

Here is how Tester’s support for gun control unfolded–shortly after the heinous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary, Manchin began pushing universal background checks for gun sales. Such checks have long been a dream of gun-grabbing Democrats and were one of the big gun control goals of Barack Obama.

Would the checks have prevented Sandy Hook? No. The gunman who attacked Sandy Hook stole his weapons, so point-of-sale gun controls were powerless. Yet Manchin pushed the gun controls because there was an emotional window of opportunity. And Tester voted for the gun controls when they came before the Senate.

The gun controls failed, but that does the change the fact that Tester supported them.

Fast forward to 2017 and Republican Matt Rosendale is running to unseat Tester. One of the first things Rosendale did was focus on Tester’s support for gun control. Politifactquoted Rosendale saying, “Tester believes that we should have a national registration so that the people of Montana should have to ask permission before they purchase a gun, ask permission from the federal government.”

Politifact said Rosendale’s claim that Tester supports a gun registry is “absurd,” and in so doing, may have just proven that Politifact does not understand how a gun registry works (or what purpose it serves).

For example, Breitbart News and the NRA warned again and again that Senator Manchin’s universal background check bill would require a gun registry in order to be enforceable. The need for an accompanying registry is easy to understand when one grasps the fact that universal backgrounds are based on a government’s knowledge of the location of every gun and every gun owner; without knowing both these things government could never know when a gun is changing hands. And the only way to know these things is a gun registry.

More recently, when Michael Bloomberg was pushing universal background checks in New Mexico, 32 of the state’s 33 sheriffs signed a letter warning that the implementation of such checks would lead to a gun registry. And we have seen this work out in real time in California, where universal background checks led to gun registration requirements and gun confiscation laws.

Therefore, Rosendale’s claims about Tester are not as “absurd” as Politifact would have you believe.

Perhaps the best way to put it would be to say that Tester voted for post-Sandy Hook gun controls that would not have been enforceable without the creation of a national gun registry.

Everytown Calls for More Gun Control Following Charlottesville Car Attack

On August 12, Everytown for Gun Safety pushed for more gun control in connection with the Charlottesville, Virginia, rally where attendees were attacked with a car.

CNN reported that one attendee was killed and 19 were injured as 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr. allegedly accelerated his vehicle into the crowd in Charlottesville.

Everytown focused on the fact that open carry is legal in Virginia and some of the attendees were openly armed:

With open carry, there’s no way to know if someone armed with a rifle is a reason to duck and cover. (3/5)

And it ties law enforcement’s hands from doing anything about it — until shots are fired and it’s too late. (4/5)

And on August 13 — the day after the car attack — Everytown tweeted a quote from a University of Virginia professor, who commented on the violence at the rally, saying, “When so many demonstrators come out armed, it only takes one to ignite a fire.”

Again, one person was killed and 19 injured in a car attack in Charlottesville. Guns were not used. But Everytown is using the violence to push gun control.

Report: Hillary Clinton Considering Becoming a Methodist Preacher

James 2:19-20 New Living Translation (NLT)

19 You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God.[a] Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. 20 How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?

Having failed to win the White House in November and with a new book on the way, Hillary Clinton is reportedly looking at turning to a more publicly religious role. Her pastor is saying she wants to get into preaching.

According to The Atlantic, Clinton told her longtime pastor Bill Shillady, at a recent photo shoot for his new book, that she wants to preach — something that the outlet says has always been a dream for her.

This comes on the back of a report that Clinton told an editor in 1994 that she thought “all the time” about becoming a minister. Per the Atlantic:

Last fall, the former Newsweek editor Kenneth Woodward revealed that Clinton told him in 1994 that she thought “all the time” about becoming an ordained Methodist minister. She asked him not to write about it, though: “It will make me seem much too pious.” The incident perfectly captures Clinton’s long campaign to modulate—and sometimes obscure—expressions of her faith.

The revelation comes ahead of two Clinton-related books coming out in 2017. Clinton herself has written What Happened — a 500+ page campaign post-mortem about how she lost in November. But Shillady himself has a new book of devotions: “Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton” which has a forward by Clinton herself.

“Given her depth of knowledge of the Bible and her experience of caring for people and loving people, she’d make a great pastor,” Shillady told the Atlantic, but noted it would likely be more of a lay position such as a deaconess.

“I think it would be more of … her guest preaching at some point,” he said. “We have a long history of lay preachers in the United Methodist Church.”

The blurb for the book says it “includes 365 of the more than 600 devotions written for Clinton, along with personal notes, portions of her speeches, and headlines that provide context for that day’s devotion.”

“Clinton is writing the foreword, the first time post-election readers will have a chance to hear directly from her about her faith during this time,” the teaser for the book says.

Some Methodists have expressed their excitement for a Clinton move to the more spiritual side. Zach Hoag, writing for HuffPost, noted the “spiritual” character of her concession speech and suggested it may be a sign of Hillary’s resurgent religious focus.

“As a United Methodist, I’d be pumped to see Hillary take the pulpit in our church and dig from that deep well of experience, disappointment, and hope in a future harvest,” he wrote.

VIDEO: New York Deputies Knock on Vietnam Vet’s Door, Confiscate Guns

The New York Unsafe Act is a liberal attempt to undermined the Second Amendment.

A 70-year-old Vietnam veteran said he was watching television in his Taberg, New York, home when deputies knocked on his door, then entered and confiscated his firearms.

The veteran, Don Hall, said the deputies told him he had a record of mental issues. They took his handguns, then asked if he had long guns. They took those also.

Hall said he was in disbelief–that he tried to think back to what he could have said or done at some point in his 70 years that would have made someone think he had a mental problem. He said, “I was guilty until I could prove myself innocent. They don’t tell you why or what you supposedly did. It was just a bad screw-up”:

According to Syracuse.com, Hall hired an attorney, who advised Hall that he would have to prove that he was not the Don Hall with mental issues. In other words, he was not the Don Hall authorities were seeking. Hall “secured affidavits from local hospitals to prove he hadn’t been recently treated,” and, over a period of time, “his lawyer convinced a judge that authorities had him confused with someone else who had sought care and that his weapons should never have been seized.”

A county judge agreed that a mistake had been made and ordered the return of Hall’s firearms. They believe Hall was misidentified when someone with a similar name was reported.

Hall and his attorney blame the gun controls contained in the 2013 SAFE Act, which was passed in the wake of the heinous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School. One of the controls in the Act was a new reporting requirement for “health providers.”

This highlights the heart of the problem with adding gun control onto gun control. The body of gun laws poses no hindrance to criminals–who ignore laws–but it does present problems for law-abiding citizens. Such laws create a scenario where a Vietnam War veteran can be sitting in his home, watching TV at 9:30 p.m., only to have sheriff’s deputies knock on the door and ask for his firearms.

Delingpole: Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology Caught Erasing Record Low Temperatures

More fraud from the globull warming crowd.

Peter B Kraehenbuehl/Wikipedia Commons

Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has been caught red handed erasing record-breaking cold temperatures from its data records.

The BOM has now been shamed by media investigations into ordering a review of its procedures. But it has yet to provide an explanation as to why it made these “adjustments” in the first place.

These “adjustments” seem to go only one way. The BOM is perfectly happy to record and announce it whenever Australia’s temperatures hit record-breaking highs. But when the temperatures reach new lows it’s a different matter altogether.

For some strange reason that the BOM has been unable to explain, when temperatures go below a certain point it either deletes them as if they had never been – or it enters them into its records at higher temperature than the one actually recorded by its thermometers.

The dodgy adjustments were spotted by investigative journalist Jennifer Marohasy.

Earlier this month, she was contacted by bush meteorologist Lance Pidgeon who had noticed that Goulburn, a town south west of Sydney, had smashed its temperature record with a low of -10.4 degrees Celsius.

Except, the Bureau has since erased this measurement.

According to the Bureau’s own rules, the coldest temperature record during a 24-hour period to 9am is recorded as the minimum for that day. So, for Sunday 2 July the carry-over minimum should be -10.4 degrees Celsius. But instead the summary documentation shows -10.0. There is now no public record of -10.4 degrees Celsius.

This is not the first time the BOM has been accused of behaving more like a political activist organization than a scientific one. On every occasion, instead of fessing up to its dodgy antics, it has hidden behind a wall of bluster and pretend-scientific authority.

For example, against the principles of robust science, it refuses to allow its data to be audited independently – or to discuss why or how it makes its temperature adjustments.

As The Australian notes in a paywalled editorial, these unexplained adjustments are no way to inspire confidence among a taxpaying public which has to fund the BOM to the tune of an annual 365.3 million (2015/16 figures).

That adjustment process, known as homogenisation, has got the bureau in trouble in the past. Again, the issue has been one of transparency. The bureau has made a series of changes to historical records across the country. It says it does so to adjust for the movement of a weather station site, changes to surrounding vegetation or results that look wrong when compared with nearby sites. Such homogenisation is not unique to Australia but the bureau sometimes fails to convince when asked to explain the specific local adjustments it has made, especially if these bolster a warming trend. The same goes for any practices that discount cold temperatures.

The official record must be accurate and trusted. Otherwise, claims of historic extremes — the hottest winter day! — only mislead and public policy gets corrupted. Even if the bureau does have all the answers, it needs to do a better job of taking the public — sceptics included — into its confidence.

The same is true, of course, in the US where organizations like NASA and NOAA  have also been caught red-handed making adjustments to their own temperature data sets, none of these convincingly explained.

But this scandal is not as widely known as it should be, largely because it goes virtually unreported in the liberal-dominated mainstream media. This partly explains the huge discrepancy between the way liberals think about climate change and the way conservatives do. According to this survey, liberals in both the U.S and the UK are dramatically more worried about climate change than conservatives.

Scientists Claim Hundreds of U.S. Cities May Not Survive Rising Waters

The same old tired  globull warming song just a different day.

New York City, Boston, San Francisco, and Miami are among the U.S. cities that a group of scientists said could disappear because of rising waters caused by man-made climate change.

“Residents of roughly 500 cities across the US will be faced with the same choices by the end of the century: whether to mitigate or to abandon their homes,” CNN reported on a study released on Wednesday by the Union of Concerned Scientists (USC).

CNN reported that “scientists have been trying to get people to wake up to the dangers that lie ahead in rising seas due to climate change.”

The scientists’ report has “a comprehensive list [that] now names hundreds of US cities, large and small, that may not make it through the next 20, 50 or 80 years due to sea level rise,” CNN reported.

“Between 165 and 180 chronically inundated communities in just the next 15 to 20 years; between 270 and 360 in roughly 40 years, depending on the pace of sea level rise; and 490 by end of century with a moderate sea level rise scenario,” Erika Spanger-Siegfried, co-author and senior climate analyst for UCS, said. “With a higher sea level rise scenario, that number rises to about 670; that’s about half of all of the oceanfront communities in the lower 48.”

CNN reported that 90 U.S. communities are considered “inundated today,” mostly in Louisiana and Maryland, where allegedly seas are rising and the land is sinking.

The report also claims:

By 2060, the list grows to hundreds of coastal communities including cities like Galveston, Texas; Sanibel Island, Florida; Hilton Head Island, South Carolina; Ocean City, Maryland; and cities along the Jersey Shore.

By the end of the century more than 50 cities with populations of more than 100,000 could be affected. Cities like Boston; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and four of the five boroughs of New York will be considered inundated. Although the West Coast seems to be spared the brunt of inundation over the next few decades, even places like San Francisco and Los Angeles will be on the list by 2100.

CNN reported that scientists were “alarmed” by President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement, which they support.

“If we act today to achieve the temperature and emissions reductions goals outlined in the Paris climate agreement, and succeed in slowing the acceleration of sea level rise, about 380 communities could avoid chronic inundation this century,” the study states.
