Fundamental Principles

By Tammy Derouin

I really hoped that by the time we approached the inauguration things would have calmed down. But, we are not just dealing with disappointment; we are dealing with pure hate. I wanted to believe that Americans would come together, much like we did eight years ago when the GOP was dealing with disappointment and the disbelief that Obama had actually won the election. Maybe, just maybe, an unknown senator, with a lack luster career and very little experience beyond community organizing, would surprise us and do good things for the country.

The doubts which conservatives had, upon his election, were not due to his skin color, as the Left would like you to believe. We had doubts based on facts and lack of information. There were too many unknowns. The little we knew about his background was cause for concern. But, it was the lack of available information that was extremely unsettling and raised many red flags. The press was already under the progressive influence as they disregarded unanswered question and did not venture on a quest to find the truth. Why were so many puzzle pieces missing and not pursued? Why didn’t they want to present a clear, complete picture to the nation? Eight devastating years later, we know why.

In the spirit of giving Obama a chance, we accepted the election results. It was up to him to prove who he was, what he could do and how he would do it. Remember when he stated that he wanted to fundamentally transform America? Remember how it was brushed off as political rhetoric and not taken seriously? Here we are eight years later trying to reclaim some of our fundamental principles.


It didn’t take long to realize our country was in serious trouble.......

A School Administrator Corrected a Student’s Spelling on Twitter. She Was Fired.

A School Administrator Corrected a Student’s Spelling on Twitter. She Was Fired. - Hit & Run : Reason.com:
"It would be difficult to find a better example of everything that's wrong with education in America: a Maryland public school fired the woman who ran its Twitter account because she corrected a student's spelling.
The student, "Nathan," tweeted "Close school tammarow PLEASE" at Frederick County Public Schools. Katie Nash, the district's social media director, replied "but then how would you learn to spell 'tomorrow'? :)" from the FCPS account.
District officials were not pleased. 
First, they instructed Nash to stop tweeting. 
Then they called her into a meeting and abruptly fired her, according to The Frederick News-Post:
As a new employee, I think I sort of would have expected that there would have been some counseling or some suggestions on how to improve," she said.
Nash said there was never a conversation about what the tone of the account was to be.
"Any social media manager is looking for increasing engagement, and that's sort of the expected parameter," she said. "I think a conversation about how we engage with students would have been completely appropriate and I would have welcomed that..."

How American Charities Fund Terrorism

How American Charities Fund Terrorism :: Middle East Forum:
"As the president-elect has repeatedly made clear, his first full day in office will be a busy one.
He has promised to effect a wide array of changes.
But what about his second day?
If he has some free time, we have some suggestions.
As the threat from international terror groups and homegrown radicalization increases, clamping down on domestic Islamist networks should be a priority.
In particular: terror financing.
Under the Obama administration, the federal government appeared to ease up on prosecutions of American Islamist charities linked to terror. 
This was a marked change from the years after 9/11, when scores of charities were shut down after prosecutors found financial and logistical links to terrorist groups across the globe.
This effort culminated in 2008, when the Holy Land Foundation was tried in court on charges of financing terrorism. Federal prosecutors listed a considerable number of prominent American Muslim organizations as "unindicted co-conspirators."
Eight years of a more permissive attitude has afforded Islamist groups the chance for a resurgence. 
Islamist charities do not just provide a means to move money; they also offer legitimacy to American Islamist organizations struggling to free themselves from decades of allegations of extremism.
Islamist charitable endeavors abroad serve to sanitize the Islamist agenda at home..."

Even the Feds are Warning that California's Bullet Train Is a Disaster in the Making - Hit & Run : Reason.com:
Image result for California's Bullet Train Is a Disaster"Just days after California Gov. Jerry Brown warned that the state was slipping back into deficit spending ($1.6 billion by next summer), the Los Angeles Times got its hands on a confidential internal report from the Federal Railroad Administration that points the fingers right back at the governor when it comes to wasteful spending.
Even the feds believe the state is drastically understating the costs of it's massive high-speed rail project, approved by voters years ago but with only a small portion of the project funded.
Just the first leg of the $70 billion project could cost billions more than budgeted, $10 billion instead of $6.4 billion. 
And the project is already way behind schedule.
The report predicts the first stretch of track (in the center of the state) won't be completed until 2024, seven years behind schedule..."

Black Man Conducts Dress-Up Experiment to Prove 'Racism.' Does the Opposite...

Black Man Conducts Dress-Up Experiment to Prove 'Racism.' Does the Opposite... » Louder With Crowder:
"If you believe that today’s incessant claims of racism are blown out of proportion by the media, by #BlackLivesMatter and our dear leader Barack Obama, you’re a racistCheck your white privilege
But only if you’re white. 
If you’re black and you believe there’s racism everywhere, you might be this guy. 
He’s Pedro Fequiere, a junior staff writer at BuzzFeed. 
That’s your first hint. 
Your second hint is the title of his piece at BuzzFeed: “A Black Man Wore Different Kinds of Clothing to See if People Treated Him Differently.” 
If you’re not clued in yet, try this line:
Many black men dress up to avoid being seen negatively. Every day, we are dressing for survival.
Here’s the problem, Pedro. 
Yes, now I’m addressing you directly. 
Everyone dresses up to represent themselves in a certain way. 
Why? 
Because we’re all judged based on our appearances. 
Ask anyone who’s ever been on a promising first date. 
Or a job interview. 
Whichever you’ve had more of, think back to how you’ve dressed. 
Did you go wearing saggy pants? 
Or did you go in a suit? 
Point made, but I’m not stopping…

Important!-Lunch video-----Part II: NEW Investigation Uncovers Plot to Chain the Trains & Shut Down...

"The latest Project Veritas video reveals DisruptJ20 plot to Chain Trains and Halt the DC Metro.
This video exposes the collusion between the various groups under the DisruptJ20 umbrella. 

The video shows that DJ20 is not simply a movement of fringe groups but instead a nefarious organization."


Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHZSfhd1X_8
In this video, Project Veritas investigators uncover a group known as the DC Anti-fascist Coalition plotting to disrupt President-Elect Donald Trump’s inauguration by deploying butyric acid at the National Press Club during the Deploraball event scheduled for January 19th.
The meeting, captured on hidden camera, was held at Comet Ping Pong, a DC pizza restaurant that is better known as the location of the Pizzagate controversy. 

The coalition members discuss the steps they would need to take to halt the Deploraball event. 
Project Veritas notified the FBI, Secret Service and DC Metro Police of the content of this video prior to its release.

The Empire Strikes Back: 2017 and the CIA's War with Trump

The Empire Strikes Back: 2017 and the CIA's War with Trump | The Daily Sheeple
"The new year is less than two weeks old, and we can already say one thing with confidence. 
2017 is not going to be boring.
By now, all of you have heard about the fake news “dossier” created by an ex-Britisth spy working on opposition research funded, first by Trump’s GOP primary rivals, and then Democrats after he clinched the nomination. 
As has been widely reported, the contents of this document have been floating around media outlets since at least last fall, yet not a single one of them was willing to report on it in any detail or publish it in full as Buzzfeed did last evening. 
This is pretty remarkable considering how heated the election was, and the extent to which so many in the media desperately wanted Hillary Clinton to win. The reason nobody touched it is because, as Buzzfeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith himself admitted, the claims are unverifiable and “there is serious reason to doubt the allegations” (his words not mine). 
So why did CNN and Buzzfeed decided to publish this now?
To understand what I think happened, we have to go back to last week’s post titled, Did Chuck Schumer Just Threaten Donald Trump? 
Here’s what we learned:
The new leader of Democrats in the Senate says Donald Trump is being “really dumb” for picking a fight with intelligence officials, suggesting they have ways to strike back, after the president-elect speculated Tuesday that his “so-called” briefing about Russian cyberattacks had been delayed in order to build a case.
“Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Tuesday evening on MSNBC after host Rachel Maddow informed him that intelligence sources told NBC news that the briefing had not been delayed.

Fake news-----CNN, ABC Caught Oversampling Dems To Tank Trump's Favorables

CNN, ABC Caught Oversampling Dems To Tank Trump's Favorables | The Daily Caller:
"Two polls released Tuesday — one from ABC and a second from CNN — tout Donald Trump as being the most unfavorable incoming president in modern history — yet on second look, the data is clearly boosted by the pollers’ decision to oversample Democrats. 
According to Gallup, 28 percent of Americans identify themselves as a Republican, while 25 percent identify as a Democrat.
Despite this information, eight more percent of participants in both the ABC and CNN polls identified as Democrats, leading to an 11 point swing in partisanship breakdown off the national average.
ABC’s poll sampled 1,005 adults across the nation. However, partisan breakdown shows that only 23 percent of participants identified as Republican.
Conversely, 31 percent of participants identified as Democrats and 37 percent as independent, while nine percent did not answer.

ABC’s poll found 40 percent of participants viewed Trump favorably, while 54 percent viewed him unfavorably.

Important!!---Dems plan violence and media hides video proof-----James O’Keefe producing real news on Inaugural Violence Plans MSM yawns

James O’Keefe producing real news on Inaugural Violence Plans MSM yawns – Da Tech Guy Blog:
"... because the media have become democrats with bylines such things are left to James O’Keefe and Project Veritas
Well it’s kind of sad that this kind of work has to be done by a James O’Keefe vs the MSM but if I’m wrong about the MSM & the “Democrats with bylines” bit and given their claimed commitment to real news, an actual plot to release acid at events, chain up DC subways, and assault people at the inauguration , particularly with said revelations on video, might just be considered newsworthy by places like CNN:
and CBS
and NBC
and ABC (whose ads kept overriding the results forcing me to use the ad blocking Brave Browser in order to see them)
and PBS
and the NYT
Or perhaps not.
But even if national news services didn’t cover it, you would think surely the Washington Post would carry the story if not because of it’s national importance but because it affects their local metro area

You would think wrong.
Remember these are searches of their web sites. 
So not only are they not covering this in print or on camera, not a one of them even bothered with a throw away piece buried online.
I guess well have to wait for Trump to tweet the story out for them to cover it.
If you wonder why this administration calls the MSM fake news and likes DaTechGuyblog’s reporting more than theirs, you don’t have to wonder anymore.
Closing thought, it’s interesting to note via several of the graphics that during the presidential campaign the networks seemed to be willing to coordinate attacks on O’Keefe to hide the evidence of Democrat operatives trying to foment violence at Trump events..."

Hillary Clinton’s Failure to Win Even 20 States Means She Is ‘Legitimate President-Elect’

Huffington Post Contributor: Hillary Clinton’s Failure to Win Even 20 States Means She Is ‘Legitimate President-Elect’ - Breitbart:
"Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton’s inability to win even 20 of America’s 50 states means she is the “legitimate president-elect,” a contributor to the off-the-rails progressive blog Huffington Post wrote.
“Hillary Clinton is the Legitimate President-Elect,” reads the headline on the Huffington Post for a piece from “political writer and commentator” Alex Mohajer.
“The evidence is clear. Hillary Clinton is the rightful president-elect, and courts must use the broad discretionary powers with which they are vested to enjoin an illegitimate president from taking office,” the sub-headline on Mohajer’s piece reads.
The post got 17,000 shares on social media, according to the Huffington Post’s own metrics on the page, which means this is a popular viewpoint on the hard left.
Clinton failed to win even 20 U.S. states..."

The Disgusting Evolution Of Obama From 2008 To Today | The Federalist Papers

The Disgusting Evolution Of Obama From 2008 To Today | The Federalist Papers:

"After it was concluded that Russia attempted to interfere in the United States election, spreading “fake news” about Hillary Clinton, leaking scandalous emails and allegations about the Democratic candidate, Barack Obama’s response was to increase sanctions and toss 35 Russian diplomats from the country.

Remember: Russia didn’t “hack” the election, as leftists claim. There was zero evidence that they managed to change a single vote. Whether or not their attempted campaign was successful may never be know."

PAST PERFORMANCE IS NO GUARANTEE OF FUTURE RESULTS

PAST PERFORMANCE IS NO GUARANTEE OF FUTURE RESULTS:
Shot:
In 1993, novelist Michael Crichton riled the news business with a Wired magazine essay titled “Mediasaurus,” in which he prophesied the death of the mass media—specifically the New York Times and the commercial networks. “Vanished, without a trace,” he wrote.

The mediasaurs had about a decade to live, he wrote, before technological advances—”artificial intelligence agents roaming the databases, downloading stuff I am interested in, and assembling for me a front page”—swept them under. Shedding no tears, Crichton wrote that the shoddy mass media deserved its deadly fate.

“[T]he American media produce a product of very poor quality,” he lectured. “Its information is not reliable, it has too much chrome and glitz, its doors rattle, it breaks down almost immediately, and it’s sold without warranty. It’s flashy but it’s basically junk.”

* * * * * * * * *

As we pass his prediction’s 15-year anniversary, I’ve got to declare advantage Crichton. Rot afflicts the newspaper industry, which is shedding staff, circulation, and revenues. It’s gotten so bad in newspaperville that some people want Google to buy the Times and run it as a charity! Evening news viewership continues to evaporate, and while the mass media aren’t going extinct tomorrow, Crichton’s original observations about the media future now ring more true than false. Ask any journalist.
Chaser:
In his own way, Trump has set us free. Reporters must treat Inauguration Day as a kind of Liberation Day to explore news outside the usual Washington circles. He has been explicit in his disdain for the press and his dislike for press conferences, prickly to the nth degree about being challenged and known for his vindictive way with those who cross him. So, forget about the White House press room. It’s time to circle behind enemy lines.

Washington reporting has long depended on a transactional relationship between sources and journalists. Journalists groom sources, but sources also groom journalists. There’s nothing inherently unethical about the back-scratching. When a reporter calls an administration source to confirm an embarrassing item, the source may agree to confirm as long as the reporter at the very least agrees to listen sympathetically to the administration’s context. But Trump’s hostile attitude toward the press, his dismissal of CNN for attempting to ask a question at the last conference, and his underhanded ploy at the last conference where he loaded the audience with cheerleaders has muted that mutualism. It’s easy to predict that instead of negotiating with reporters as equals, his administration will advance its agenda by feeding more pliant reporters material the way a trainer rewards circus animals.
