Inauguration Insanity: BLM Sets up Human Chain near Bikers for Trump to Block Police

Disruptive Black Lives Matter protesters formed a human chain to prevent Bikers for Trump from getting to their rally in front of John Marshall Park. Conservative Review’s Maria Jeffrey was at the scene documenting the protest events.

At one point, the BLM human chain also blocked police officers from entering their area.

Those police officers are there to ensure the safety of everyone attending the Inauguration, protesters and Trump supporters alike.

What if they needed to get into the area in case of an emergency? What if someone needed medical attention and Black Lives Matter agitators prevented them from getting the emergency care they needed? What if violence breaks out and they prevent the police from stopping it?

These malcontent creeps are putting people in danger! (For more from the author of “Inauguration Insanity: BLM Sets up Human Chain near Bikers for Trump to Block Police” please click HERE)

Betsy DeVos Is Scarier Than the KKK, Says DC Teachers Union Head

Speaking at an event organized to oppose President-elect Donald Trump’s agenda in Washington, D.C. Thursday, American Federation of Teachers President Elizabeth “Liz” Davis said that Betsy DeVos, Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education, is more frightening than the Ku Klux Klan.

“Of course, you know that there are some scarier things that are coming up … one of them is Betsy DeVos,” Davis said. “That frightens me more than the Klan, because Betsy DeVos is a multi-mega millionaire who has managed to buy her way to a position of influence that could actually change the face of what we know public education to be, and what we want it to be in this country.”

Watch:

Betsy DeVos is scarier than the KKK?

That is not jumping the shark. That is jumping a team of sharks with a flaming motorcycle, naked, irrationally screaming as the train-wreck of your pathetic liberal hysteria reaches the point where the American people cannot take your argument seriously because you think a kindly mid-western woman who supports school choice is worse than the Ku Klux Klan.

The real insult here is that as a representative for teachers, as an educator, Ms. Davis should know full well the KKK’s evil history and the atrocities committed by that wicked hate group. This is a woman responsible for teaching American children. For Davis to say that Betsy DeVos is scarier than the Ku Klux Klan, that is beyond slander.

She should be ashamed of herself. (For more from the author of “Betsy DeVos Is Scarier Than the KKK, Says DC Teachers Union Head” please click HERE)

Ex-Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino Warns You about the Leftist Inauguration Violence the MSM Is Ignoring

If you are attending President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration in Washington, D.C. tomorrow, be careful. The malcontents on the Left are unwilling to accept the election results and you very well could be caught up in a violent protest.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino explains how if the threats coming from left-wing groups came from right-wing groups during Obama’s inauguration, the media would be hysterical.

Stay alert tomorrow, and be safe! (For more from the author of “Ex-Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino Warns You about the Leftist Inauguration Violence the MSM Is Ignoring” please click HERE)

Fireworks, Protests, Celebs, Prayers — What to Expect at the Inauguration

Besides a lot of paid violent protests, what else can we expect to take place at Friday’s inauguration? President-elect Donald Trump has promised it will be quite an event. “We’re going to have a very, very elegant day. The 20th is going to be something that will be very, very special, very beautiful.” An estimated 900,000 are expected to attend the 45th presidential inauguration.

Thursday: The Celebration

Events begin 3 p.m. EST on Thursday at Arlington National Cemetery, with Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence laying wreaths at the Tomb of the Unknowns. In Washington, several marching bands will play at the southwest end of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool.

At 4 p.m., the “Make America Great Again!” Welcome Celebration concert begins at the Lincoln Memorial. Musical guests and celebrities making appearances include Toby Keith, Jon Voight, the Piano Guys, Lee Greenwood, DJ Ravidrums, 3 Doors Down, and the Frontmen of Country. Many big names stayed away such as blind tenor Andrea Bocelli, who received death threats. Donald Trump himself will be speaking at the event.

The day will conclude with a fireworks show.

Friday: The Inauguration

The Trump and Pence families will attend a private church service Friday morning at St. John’s Episcopal Church near the White House, an historic house of worship known as “the Church of the Presidents.” According to the National Park Service, every President since James Madison has worshiped there on some occasion.

As is tradition, incoming President Trump will then meet with current President Barack Obama at the White House before riding together to Capitol Hill.

The swearing-in ceremony begins at 11:30 a.m. on the western side of the Capitol building. The U.S. Marine Band will play the prelude. Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Missouri, will deliver the welcoming statement. Cardinal Timothy Michael Dolan, Reverend Dr. Samuel Rodriguez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and the New Destiny Christian Center’s Pastor Paula White-Cain will deliver the readings and invocation. Cardinal Dolan will read King Solomon’s prayer for wisdom in leading Israel. The Missouri State University Chorale will play a musical selection.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas will swear in Pence. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will perform next, followed by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts swearing in Trump. The Marine Band will play “Hail to the Chief.”

Trump then delivers his inaugural address, which is expected to be short. Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Reverend Franklin Graham of Samaritan’s Purse and The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Great Faith Ministries International will wrap up the proceedings with readings and the benediction. America’s Got Talent runner-up, 16-year-old Jackie Evancho, will conclude the inauguration by singing the National Anthem.

The hour-and-a-half-long inaugural parade follows at 3 p.m. Over 8,000 participants march along Pennsylvania toward the White House, including Trump and Pence. Talladega College, a historically black college in Alabama, is one of the organizations sending a marching band to participate, even though the school had to bravely ignore complaints from the public and a few alumni.

Finally, Trump, Pence, and their wives, will attend three inaugural balls, two at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and a third, the Armed Services Ball, at the National Building Museum.

Boycotting Congressmen, Protesters and Counter-Protesters

About 65 Democratic members of Congress are refusing to attend the inauguration. These include Sen. Jeff Sessions’ bitter critic, Rep. John Lewis; Keith Ellison, Congress’s only Muslim, who wants to run the Democratic National Committee; left-wing stalwarts like Rep. John Conyers and Maxine Walters.

The Atlantic reports that “A Senate Historian told The Sacramento Bee that while ‘about 100 lawmakers skip the presidential inauguration every four years” due to scheduling conflicts, the Senate Historical Office ‘had no record of a boycott comparable to that being proposed for Trump’s inauguration.’”

The left has planned massive violent protests, much of which was organized by an organization known as DisruptJ20, which almost certainly receives funding from left-wing billionaire George Soros. Undercover videographer James O’Keefe of Project Veritas filmed activists planning to put butyric acid in the ventilation systems in order to drive people out of the balls. They also expressed their intent to form blockades in various locations.

While there are concerns the protesters will overwhelm law enforcement, a biker group is vowing to provide a “wall of meat” to block the protesters. The bikers are predicted to provide the biggest pro-Trump demonstration at the inauguration. Bikers for Trump founder and leader Chris Cox told Fox News, “In the event that we are needed, we will certainly form a wall of meat. We’ll be shoulder-to-shoulder with our brothers. And we’ll be toe-to-toe with anyone who’s going to break through police barricades.”

The White House will be live streaming the events from its website, as are multiple news outlets. See the official program here.

Rand Paul’s Smack down of Bernie Sanders’ Anti-American Rhetoric Is Frickin’ Fantastic

In his questioning of Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga. (D, 62%) Wednesday at the Health, Education, Labor, and Pension (HELP) Committee confirmation hearing, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. (F, 17%) asked the HHS nominee if he thought health care is a “right of all Americans whether they’re rich or they’re poor?”

“We’re a compassionate society,” Price began his reply before Sanders cut him off, stating, “No, we’re not a compassionate society in terms of our relationship to poor and working people. Our record is worse than virtually any other country on earth. We have the highest rate of childhood poverty than any other major country on earth and half of our senior, older workers have nothing set aside for retirement. So I don’t think compared to other countries we are particularly compassionate.”

When it was Sen. Rand Paul’s, R-Ky. (A, 92%) turn to question Rep. Price, a former practicing physician, he centered his comments on rebutting Sen. Sanders:

“It’s also been insinuated that America is this horrible, rotten place, and that we don’t have compassion. And by extension, the physicians don’t. As you worked as an emergency room physician or as you worked, did you always agree that as part of your engagement with a hospital to treat all, regardless of whether they had the ability to pay?” questioned Sen. Paul, a trained ophthalmologist who has completed medical missions since taking office.

Price answered that, “It’s one of the things we pride ourselves on, and that is anybody that showed up in need of care was provided that care. And that was true not only in our residency but in our private orthopedic practice as well.”

Paul continued: “It’s interesting that those who say we have no compassion, you know, extol the virtues of socialism. And you look at a country like Venezuela, with great resources and an utter disaster where people can’t eat, devolving into violence. I think it’s important that we do have a debate ultimately in our country between socialism and communism and America and capitalism.

“One of things that’s extraordinary about our country is that just two years ago, in 2014, we gave away $400 billion privately. Not the government — individually, through churches and charities. We’re an incredibly compassionate society and I think often this was misplaced in sort of the wonky numbers … within healthcare. How much we do help each other — not only do we help each other in our country, I bet you half of the physicians in my community in Bowling Green have gone on international trips and done international charity work.

“And all that is lost in saying that we’re this heartless, terrible country. I would just argue the opposite. I think the greatness of our country and the greatness of the compassion of our country, we give away most of the gross domestic product of most of these socialized countries around the world.”

Sen. Rand Paul’s smackdown of Sanders’ empty, predictable rhetoric on capitalism and America was an immediate hit on social media.

Attacks Planned All over the Country during Trump’s Inauguration

Earlier this week, Fox News reported a secret meeting of #DisruptJ20, a collection of anarchist groups planning to disrupt the inaugural. Trevor Loudon got into the meeting and recorded it for a while before being discovered and thrown out. The covert recording was a project of Matthew Vadum’s Capital Research Center to expose these leftists:

That story was an intro to a 20 minute video, “America Under Seige”, that CRC will release thursday, available free on YouTube. Here is the trailer to the video. It is part of CRC’s Dangerous Documentaries series.

Project Veritas also came out with covert videos of #DisruptJ20 planning meetings:

Part I. They talk about using butyric acid, which smells like vomit, in the ventilation shafts of buildings and setting off fire alarm sprinkler systems. These people should be arrested in advance for planning these terroristic activities.

Part II. They talk about “throat punching” which can be deadly, and shutting down the Metro. I think the idea is to hook a chain on the Metro train door when it opens and hook the other end to the train so the door can’t close.

Judicial Watch reports that there may be actual terrorist attacks along the border to disrupt the inaugural.

There has been an attack inside Mexico on the building site of a new U.S. Consulate near the border.

You should share all of this information with everyone you know. America spoke this election, but the Left refuses to get the message. They need to get it, loud and clear. In the meantime, we need to be ready for their attacks.

Trump’s Entrepreneurial Approach Threatens the Washington Establishment, Says Newt Gingrich

President-elect Donald Trump is on a collision course with the Washington establishment, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Thursday. A city that is accustomed to doing things a certain way contrasts sharply with Trump’s entrepreneurial approach, he observed.

Gingrich spoke at The Heritage Foundation for the second of a six-part series on understanding Trump and Trumpism. Thursday’s lecture examined the difference between Trump approach’s of “ahead of schedule and under budget” vs. the Washington approach of “behind schedule and over budget.”

The American people can expect Trump to govern similarly to how he ran his campaign—unconventionally, Gingrich said.

“What you have is a president-elect who is entrepreneurial rather than either corporate or bureaucratic, which is part of why he can tweet—he knows what he thinks,” Gingrich said. “He doesn’t have to go to his staff and say, ‘Would five of you sit down for a long period and come back and tell me whether or not I actually think this.’”

Following the event, Gingrich told The Daily Signal that the key to understanding Trumpism is to understand how Trump makes decisions. He pointed to Trump’s success of refurbishing the Wollman Rink, a public ice skating rink in New York’s Central Park. Trump refers to this project in “The Art of the Deal” as an example of what to expect in the future administration.

Gingrich noted that “Trump knows you get what you inspect, not what you expect.”

He added, “This tells you a lot about how he gets a Cabinet, how he designs a campaign.”

Gingrich compared Trump’s candidacy to his experience as a builder, placing an emphasis on Trump’s entrepreneurial spirit.

“If you build a building, it actually has to stand,” he said. “This isn’t like NASA, which has now had 14 studies on how to get to Mars, none of which has gotten us one inch closer to Mars. You could actually stack all the papers up and be closer to Mars. That doesn’t work if you’re actually constructing things.”

According to Gingrich, Trump’s success can be attributed to his focus on not only output and results, but also his relationships with others.

“If you’re going to be in the building business, you better get used to talking to people who build things.”

Gingrich referred to the president-elect as the most anti-left leader of all time, a person who will eliminate safe spaces and political correctness.

“He’s almost never pro-left. He’s almost never pro-political correctness,” Gingrich said. “He’s certainly never pro-stupidity, and he’s always pro-American.”

What makes Trump different is that he chooses not to focus on making himself great, but rather on making America great, Gingrich noted.

“A traditional politician, it would have been about him, but [Trump] understood if it was about America, and he’s the guy making America great, that makes him bigger than any traditional politician,” Gingrich said.

Gingrich will continue his six-part series on Trumpism at Heritage on Tuesday, Jan. 17. The speech will take place at 11 a.m. EST. (For more from the author of “Trump’s Entrepreneurial Approach Threatens the Washington Establishment, Says Newt Gingrich” please click HERE)

How Fences Star Denzel Washington Lives out His Faith in Hollywood

Denzel Washington, one of Hollywood’s finest leading actors, has succeeded in the business by any standard. He’s received three Golden Globe awards, a Tony award and two Academy Awards. But as he recently told T.D. Jakes there are more important things in life than being a movie star.

From his relationship with God and his family, to the life he now wants to lead, Denzel spoke with Jakes about keeping his priorities straight. (See the full interview with Denzel and others from the cast of his new movie Fences below.)

Jakes was curious how Denzel and his wife of 34 years Pauletta have survived so many years in the spotlight. “By the grace of God. Really, I’m not taking credit,” he replied. “And a great wife. A strong, strong, strong (woman) … she has done the heavy lifting. She has been the consistent one. She has given daily religious instruction. She makes breakfast, she took them to school. I was out killing the lion, bringing home the meat, you know, providing.”

Even though the actor has a hectic schedule and is frequently shooting films far from home, he insists his family has always come first. “I don’t want that regret,” he said, when talking about raising his kids. “I don’t care how many Oscars and all that stuff, I don’t want to be that guy. I want to be the one that did the best I can for my children.”

Denzel not only stars in Fences, but directed as well. Mykelti Williamson, best known for his role as Bubba in Forrest Gump, plays Gabriel in the film and has nothing but praise for Denzel as a strong, Godly leader: “Everyday this leader, Denzel, brings the Word. On Broadway we would circle and have a word of prayer, we would cover one another, and he was serious about it, every single day. ‘Alright, we’re about to bring the Word,’ and Denzel was waiting for you and you’d better be on time.”

Denzel added, “When we’d have our circle — cause there’s a young girl in the film too — so the young girl, sometimes we’d let [her] lead. Of course, out of the mouths of babes, you know, so we’d go out there together unified with a purpose.”

It wasn’t just the cast members who prayed with Denzel during the movie shoot. Two neighborhood women who watched the filming from their homes each day became his “prayer warriors,” he said. According to Christian Today, these ladies touched Denzel’s heart. “A woman on the corner, she was watching me. She made her house a quiet place of prayer for me, and I’d go in there when things were getting overwhelming and just take a breath. Sometimes I’d just have a prayer with her.”

He explained how the second woman approached him. “Even before we started shooting I met her and I came and said, ‘Oh thank you for coming out.’ She said, ‘We’ve been watching you for a long time.’ I said ‘Well, pray for me.’ [And then] she said, ‘Denzel, I’ve been praying for you for 35 years, my family and I,’” he said. “‘We’ve been watching, we know how hard it is.’”

As this point in his life, Denzel says he’s content and ready to serve others. “You know, I’m in the service business now. I’m fine. I’ve done well. I don’t need anything else. I don’t need watches and jewelry and all that. So I’m here to serve. I’m here to serve God, I’m here to serve my family, I’m here to serve.”

Denzel Washington directs and acts in the movie Fences, which was released on Christmas Day.

Here’s the full interview on the T.D. Jakes Show:

What You Need to Know about the Process Republicans Are Using to Repeal Obamacare

There’s a lot of talk about the procedure Republicans are using to dismantle Obamacare, but what exactly is reconciliation and how does it work?

Reconciliation is a budget tool used for legislation that changes taxes, spending, or the deficit. The procedure is especially powerful in the Senate, since a reconciliation bill only needs 51 votes to pass.

This year, GOP lawmakers are taking a crack at repealing the health care law through reconciliation, and the Senate took the first major step toward dismantling the law Thursday.

After a lengthy voting session, the upper chamber passed a budget resolution for 2017 that instructs four congressional committees to start writing the repeal bill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell praised his Senate colleagues for taking “an important step” toward repealing Obamacare.

“The American people have called on Congress to act and finally bring relief from Obamacare,” McConnell said in a statement after the Senate passed the budget resolution. “I am pleased that the Senate took this critical step towards keeping that commitment tonight, and I look forward to our House colleagues passing it soon.”

The House is expected to vote on the budget resolution Friday.

Once both chambers have passed the fiscal blueprint, the committees that oversee the Affordable Care Act can begin working on the actual bill that will repeal Obamacare.

They have until Jan. 27—just one week after President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration—to complete the legislation. (For more from the author of “What You Need to Know about the Process Republicans Are Using to Repeal Obamacare” please click HERE)
