I think that if you were to ask military families who lost loved ones in the Korean war, they wouldn't say getting those remains back home is "nothing"
folks keep saying the USA got nothing
we got 3 Americans back right off the bat!
the threats have stopped, the missile tests have stopped

and we're going to be bringing Americans home who were lost on the battle field, this is going to provide answers for a lot of people who have no idea what happened to their loved one! ♥

*and* they keep saying this is all President Trump's fault ... I'm pretty sure N. Korea had nukes long before Trump got into office?
it's okay, when they pull stunts like this, it drives more people into the Trump camp! ♥

this is actually Paul Ryan, but I couldn't think of a better place for it:

The Fourth of July is about the very Idea of America.

We forget this sometimes. America wasn’t founded on a government, or a political system. All of that came much later.

It began with this beautiful idea, that our rights come from God. It began with this idea of a society based on these natural rights, on liberty, freedom, free enterprise, self-determination.

It is our duty to preserve this idea—this Great Experiment—and just as important, to preserve the spirit in which it was conceived.

That sacred pledge made on this day, they made it to each other. Everything depended on that. Everything after—every success, every sacrifice—came from that common cause.

Tocqueville thought this was the genius of our country. “Americans of all ages, all conditions, all minds constantly unite,” he wrote.

Every day, we unite in some small way. We forget this too.

We give back in our communities, we look for ways to solve problems, we look out for neighbors in need. Those things—civility and civil society—they are what connect us to one another. And by doing our part—whatever it may be—we keep this great experiment going.

So, celebrate America today. Fire up the grill. Light up the sky.

And conjure up the Spirit of ’76, too. It is an awesome, awesome thing.

Independence Day is, or should be, a time to reflect on the great gifts bequeathed to us by the American founders, and to judge ourselves by their standards. How well are we maintaining the country they built for us, and the principles which helped to make it great?

For the founders, government has one fundamental purpose: to protect person and property from conquest, violence, theft and other dangers foreign and domestic. The secure enjoyment of life, liberty and property enables the “pursuit of happiness.” Government cannot make us happy, but it can give us the safety we need as the condition for happiness. It does so by securing our rights, which nature grants but leaves to us to enforce, through the establishment of just government, limited in its powers and focused on its core responsibility.

Trump’s Inaugural address reasserted the fundamental duty of government to protect every citizen—and enforce the laws—equally. The speech was naturally not well-received by a political class that has manifestly failed to protect their constituents from dangers ranging from terrorism to crime to drugs, all the while looking the other way at malfeasance in high places. But the founders would have understood it.

Trump’s core governing agenda is also consistent with the founders’ vision. On immigration, he intuits that the social compact is meaningless if it applies indiscriminately to all. Illegal immigration is a logical impossibility, since no one can join a social compact without the consent of the existing members. “If we don’t have borders, we don’t have a country,” the President likes to say. To the founders, this is so obvious they would be shocked that it needs to be said at all or that anyone could doubt it.

President Trump insists that only the consent of the whole people can legitimize not just immigration, but also laws and regulations. Hence his aggressive rollback of red tape that neither the American people nor their elected representatives ever asked for or voted on.

For the founders, the right to acquire and enjoy property is fundamental to national health and individual wellbeing. The first major law passed under the new Constitution—the Tariff Act of 1789—begins “Whereas it is necessary for that support of government, for the discharge of the debts of the United States, and the encouragement and protection of manufactures, that duties be laid on goods, wares and merchandise” (emphasis added). President Trump agrees. And he understands that, in a globalized economy, the property rights of Americans cannot easily withstand predatory trade practices from abroad. So he is acting to protect our manufactures and intellectual property.

Perhaps in no sphere have we drifted further from the founders’ vision than in foreign policy. Some of that is owing to events that the founders could not possibly have foreseen. But much of it is also the result of hubris and overreach that tempts all great powers, which the founders absolutely foresaw—and warned about. President Trump intuits that the “separate and equal station” nature demands for all nations requires a fundamental recalibration of America’s expansive and ambitious foreign policy.

To these one may add the President’s equally emphatic insistence on law enforcement—at the border, in trade relations, and in local communities—to protect the people’s safety and happiness.

More than this, unlike our elites, Trump knows in his bones that the survival of any community—and especially a political community—depends on the willingness of its leaders to stand up for its members. This, again, is not a sentiment the founders thought required any philosophic explanation—though they had one at the ready. They would be surprised to find it controversial but relieved that the nation they founded found a leader immune to pseudo-sophisticated denials of this simple truth.

Donald Trump did not run, and has not governed, as an explicit avenger of the founders’ vision. Then again, unlike all of his recent predecessors, neither does he misuse the founders’ language to justify policies inconsistent with, and even diametrically opposed to, their vision. To the contrary. His agenda is not merely consistent with but indispensable to an older, better, truer understanding of how government ought to work. The way forward is in some respects the way back. Our founders show the way. Donald Trump, however intuitively or unconsciously, is following them. We should, too.

According to the June 2018 BP Statistical Review of Global Energy, the United States led the world last year in reducing carbon emissions across the board, even though President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accords in 2017.
American Enterprise Institute reports that U.S. carbon emissions declined by more than 42 million tons in 2017, far ahead of the next most environmentally-friendly country, Ukraine, where emissions declined by 20 million tons. Mexico, the United Kingdom, and Japan also saw major declines in how much carbon dioxide each nation emits into the atmosphere.

Strangely enough, Canada, Spain, the European Union, and China — all signatories to the infamous Paris Climate Accords negotiated by the United Nations — saw significant increases in carbon dioxide emissions. China released 120 million more tons of carbon dioxide into the air in 2017 than in 2016. The EU made up for America’s decline, releasing 40 million more tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

the paris climate control accord is bogus..it is a government run pyramid scam to increase revenue from tax payers
and pay big corporations..it will never do anything to reduce emmisions
our newly elected premier of Ontario has already told Trudork he will not be supporting this tax grab


i was looking for the news conference video of their confrontation..i know i has seen it on TV and again on youtube
it appears someone has had it removed...but if it is still out there somewhere i will find it


ok...the video i was talking about earlier is definitely gone..taken down by the libtards..but i did find this one where Doug Ford is going to do what it takes to avoid the carbon tax trudork has implemented

Russia Investigation: As the saying goes, a fish rots from the head down. Well, so do bad governments. Recent revelations about the behavior of President Obama and his CIA director John Brennan in pushing the bogus Russian collusion investigation suggest that's been the case.
The release of the FISA application by the FBI to investigate alleged collusion between Russia and President Trump's campaign and recent comments made by top officials are eye opening.

Not only did President Obama know about the investigation, he seems to have pushed it from the very beginning.
But don't take our word for it. Here's what Obama's Director of National Intelligence, the nation's former spy master, James Clapper, told CNN's Anderson Cooper:

"If it weren't for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of event which are still unfolding today, including Special Counsel (Robert) Mueller's investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place."

Why didn't this get more attention in the media? Obama and Brennan not only knew the dubious nature of the allegations against Trump, but pushed them anyway.

As Kimberley Strassel wrote in the Wall Street Journal, Brennan in particular has revealed himself to be a total anti-Trump partisan to an extent that's shocking for a public official. His animus is raw and deep, as his actions suggest.

"The record shows (Brennan) went on to use his position — as head of the most powerful spy agency in the world — to assist Hillary Clinton's campaign (and keep his job)," Kimberley Strassel wrote last week in the Wall Street Journal.

Brennan's manic partisanship could be seen last week in an over-the-top, bizarrely unhinged tweet following Trump's press conference after his mini-summit with Vladimir Putin. Brennan called Trump's remarks "nothing short of treasonous" and said they exceeded "the threshold of 'high crimes & misdemeanors.' "

While Brennan's hate for the GOP nominee may be public now, it wasn't in the summer of 2016. His evidence for collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia was so weak neither the FBI nor Clapper would commit to it.

Knowing his role as CIA head forbade him from intervening in domestic spying and trying to take the investigation from a low simmer to a high boil, Brennan got the ball rolling in August of 2016 by telling then former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid a tale of Russians interfering in our election on Trump's behalf.

It worked. Pushed on by Brennan, Reid, then the most powerful person in Congress, wrote a letter to FBI Director James Comey citing "evidence of a direct connection" between the Trump campaign and seeking an investigation.

Not only did Brennan share intelligence with the FBI, but soon after, the Democrat-linked opposition research firm Fusion GPS began leaking the "Trump Dossier" to the media. The fix was in.

As the release late last week of the FBI's FISA court application used to spy on former Trump aide Carter Page indicates, the dossier was used extensively for the application. That's contrary to what the FBI had maintained.

Moreover, an influential article written by Michael Isikoff detailing the dossier's contents and Harry Reid's letter to the FBI were likewise used to get approval for the FISA court application.

What do they all have in common? They all go back to the same phony dossier, written by former British spy Christopher Steele for Fusion GPS. It was never verified or validated by the FBI. It was bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and her pals at the Democratic National Committee, solely to smear Trump.

Give Hillary credit: She was adept at insinuating her phony oppo research document into the public record and at using it to weaponize U.S. intelligence agencies on behalf of her failed campaign.

But then, we all knew this had happened. What's stunning is the casual way Clapper let us know that President Obama "was responsible" for the whole shebang.

If that's so, there are really only two possibilities:

One, that a gullible Obama was fed phony information from Brennan and the Hillary Clinton campaign. He then over-reacted by tasking the intelligence community to look into it.
Or, two, that Obama knew he was dealing with tainted information. Instead of halting a bogus investigation, he let Brennan carry it forward. Why? He thought it would help elect Hillary Clinton — and cement his own presidential legacy for posterity.

At a minimum, what seems obvious is that the deep state triad of Obama, Clinton and Brennan colluded. They did it to damage Trump's campaign with allegations of Russian interference in the election. And they got the FBI and, later, a special prosecutor, to conduct a high-profile investigation.
Such collusion, if only in the political sphere, wouldn't be a crime. However, using federal assets and personnel and misrepresenting what you're doing to a FISA court to influence an election are crimes. Felonies, in fact.

The investigation of Trump is now entering its third year with nothing to show for the effort. We don't know if there will be some kind of sweeping indictment released by Mueller just before the midterm elections, but given the degree of politicization of this investigation so far it wouldn't surprise us at all.

But instead of investigating Trump, shouldn't we investigate those who subverted our democracy for rank partisan purposes to influence a presidential election? That's Obama, Brennan and Clinton.

Questions abound: Did they plan this? Who coordinated it all? Did they do it all with a nod and a wink to keep it clean? Or did they meet and discuss it? Or did it all come together at the insistent prodding of a virulently anti-Trump Brennan? America needs to know.

Removing security clearances for those in the Obama administration who lied or were guilty of misconduct and political bias would be a minimum.

The only real question is whether our justice system is too compromised to bring those who committed real crimes, not imaginary ones, to justice. And whether our equally compromised and biased media are capable of reporting it.

September 11, 2001, will always live in the hearts of Americans as one of the biggest tragedies our country has ever faced. Now, over 15 years later, we are still striving to make America a safe place for ourselves, and future generations.
One first responder from 9-11, Philip Kirschner, is struggling to get his health back on track after helping at Ground Zero. According to Breitbart, the courageous survivor spoke at length about his health, his political beliefs post-9-11, and how he believes that President Trump is a good person — despite the Left’s opinion.

“I want people to learn that he’s a humanitarian, that he reaches out, he donates,” Kirschner said. He also recalled that “he [Donald Trump] did a couple, quite a number, of Angel Flights with groups.”
As of now, Kirschner is battling heart disease and kidney cancer. He said that, despite the problems he may be facing now, he does not regret helping people that day.

In 2011, Kirschner was hospitalized in Florida, and needed to go to the Cleveland Clinic to get the treatment he required. Unfortunately, Florida refused to transport him, which left him with few options.
The survivor explained that he was able to make it to the Cleveland Clinic in 2011 due to President Trump’s donation, which came through the charity group “Angel Flight.” It was at this point that Kirschner knew he needed to clear the air about President Trump once and for all.
“He did a couple, quite a number, of Angel Flights with groups,” Kirschner recalled. “I want people to learn that he’s a humanitarian, that he reaches out, he donates.”

It’s messages like these that the mainstream media is quite eager to ignore, so most people don’t know the truth. However, it’s obvious that Trump has been helping people for a very long time. He is not the cold and calculating businessman that the media says he is.
Kirschner went on to explain how he was a lifelong Democrat until September 11th, 2001. One of the deciding factors for him was his fiancee losing her job.
She was also forced to train her replacement — a foreigner who was here on an H1B visa. Since that time, his eyes have been opened to other obvious truths.
“This nation is in such dire straits right now. I am a student of history, and when you change the language and when you dumb it down and you change the moral and ethical code of a nation, things like Nazi Germany could happen. That’s my concern. ”
Kirschner explained that we need a candidate who will make an effort to work toward establishing a better country — something President Trump has been doing since his first day in office. It is this kind of change, Kirschner reasoned, that could save us.

Kirschner also explained that he would never vote for Hillary Clinton. His cited reason at the time was that he believes her “relationship with the Muslim Sisterhood is counterproductive to American values.”
All in all, the point is — there is more to President Trump than meets the eye. When you only follow the mainstream media, you lose stories like Kirschner’s.

Middle-class income rose to the highest recorded levels in 2017 and the national poverty rate declined as the benefits of the strong economy lifted the fortunes of more Americans, the U.S. Census reported Wednesday. The median U.S. household earned $61,372 last year, meaning half of the families in the country brought in more income than this and half earned less. Crossing the $61,000 mark signals the American middle-class may have finally earned more than it did in 1999 ...

President Donald Trump added his signature to the “Save Our Seas Act” on Thursday, green-lighting an initiative to clean up eight million tons of debris from the planet’s oceans.
“As president I will continue to do everything I can to stop other nations from making our oceans into their landfills. That’s why I’m pleased – very pleased, I must say – to put my signature on this important legislation,” Trump said as he signed the Save Our Seas Act into law at the Oval Office.

Sponsored by Alaska Republican Sen. Dan Sullivan, the bill aims to promote better domestic and international efforts at cleaning up garbage that is littered throughout the oceans.
The new law will extend the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Marine Debris Program for another five years, and promote cohesion among different federal agencies on how to reduce marine debris.

The bill has received widespread bi-partisan support among lawmakers, with it passing both the House and Senate unanimously.
“Every year, over 8 million tons of garbage is dumped into our beautiful oceans by many countries of the world. That includes China, that includes Japan, that includes many, many countries,” the president explained. “This waste, trash and debris harms not only marine life, but also fisherman, coastal economies along America’s vast stretches. The bad news is it floats toward us.”
The issue of marine debris has become an increasing problem on the international stage. National Geographic reported in 2015 that 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic is in the world’s waters, with 269,000 tons of it floating on the surface and around four billion plastic microfibers per square kilometer sitting deeper in the ocean.

Trump stated that previous administrations “did absolutely nothing” to address the problem of foreign governments dumping their waste into the ocean and it landing on American shores — leaving it up to the U.S. to clean up and pay. The president went on to say that the White House has notified other governments “very strongly” of the changes to come.
