Thousands of Sarasota Florida Republicans Welcome Donald Trump-Full Speech Video

Sarasota Florida While the Donald Trump campaign has been called a circus in the past, this Saturday might have been the only time an actual elephant was on the scene.

A volunteer at the rally told CNN that the elephant is from a local group, and the Sarasota Republican Committee reached out and asked to have it at the event. Elephants are the mascot of the Republican Party, and Trump is seeking the party's nomination for president in 2016.  Elephant Photo CNN

Arizona Judge Doubts Truth of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Testimony

PHOENIX (CN) - During closing arguments Friday, the federal judge overseeing Sheriff Joe Arpaio's contempt-of-court hearing questioned Arpaio's "willingness to tell the truth while he's on the stand."
     Arpaio and four of his top assistants are accused of civil contempt, for failing to deliver data to the court and failing to train deputies on how to make constitutional traffic stops without racially profiling Latinos, as required by a 2013 court order.
     The assistants are Maricopa County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan, Deputy Chief Jack MacIntyre, Lt. Joe Sousa and Brian Sands, a retired executive chief.
     In the underlying case Melendres v. Arpaio , U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow found that Arpaio's deputies violated the Fourth Amendment rights of Latinos by arresting them during traffic stops and so-called crime-suppression sweeps based on their race.
     After about 21 days of testimony, Judge Snow challenged the six-term lawman's "forthcomingness," asking one of Arpaio's attorneys what kind of orders he must make to ensure the plaintiff class is protected.
     "The substantial question is whether these gentlemen are trying to deceive the court," Snow told attorney John Masterson, with Jones, Skelton & Hoculi. "Are they telling the truth or are they having us incur hundreds of thousands of dollars?"
     Snow's questions came after Masterson mentioned Arpaio's involvement in an investigation by a confidential informant the sheriff hired to look into whether Judge Snow and the Department of Justice were conspiring against Arpaio.
     According to the informant, the federal government wiretapped Sheridan's and Arpaio's cellphones, possibly at the behest of Snow.
     "No one at MCSO was actively investigating you," Masterson told the judge. "We had a guy that was providing information for the most part we think now was completely false."
      Sheridan testified in September that the informant, Dennis Montgomery, was hired after he claimed the federal government had illegally accessed the bank records of about 150,000 Maricopa County residents. Montgomery, a former CIA consultant, gained notoriety for duping the federal government into awarding him millions of dollars in contracts for fake computer software to catch terrorists.
     Masterson said that Arpaio was merely "curious" about Montgomery's claims.
     "Was this information that I think should have been followed up on? I do," Masterson said. "I don't think the sheriff of this county can ignore a complaint that someone has hacked data."
     Plaintiff's attorneys painted a very different picture of Arpaio's actions Friday, claiming he set out to violate the court's order to advance his "political imperative."
     The court has heard a number of testimonies that Arpaio had been told repeatedly by his aides and then-attorney, Tim Casey , that under a preliminary injunction order in the class action, his deputies must stop detaining people suspected to be in the country illegally.
     "I don't know if I heard the sheriff say a lot of times that he wasn't really sure about the injunction," Snow inquired of Stanley Young, an attorney for the plaintiffs.
     "The problem is the sheriff sets the policy for the department," Young answered. "He doesn't delegate that."
     Instead of complying with the injunction, the Sheriff's Office distributed a number of press releases that described ordering deputies - as a "backup plan" - to transport undocumented immigrants to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol despite having no criminal charges against them. The action was a direct violation of Snow's injunction, Young said.
     Arpaio also gave an interview to Fox News during the 2012 Republican National Convention, in which he said he had $7.5 million in campaign contributions because people supported his actions.
     "It's a political imperative that causes him to do it," Young said. "He sends out press releases because he wants everyone to know what he is doing."
     Failures by Arpaio and his aides did not stop after Snow's 2013 order instituted a long list of reforms , including appointment of a federal monitor, enhanced data collection, improved record-keeping and training, and a video recorder in every patrol vehicle.
     Arpaio and Sheridan have already admitted they are in contempt of Snow's order. They could face fines and criminal charges.
     "The sheriff's attorneys have argued or implied that somehow the sheriff should be able to rely on shady characters or criminals," Young said, mentioning Arpaio's involvement with Montgomery's investigation. In the process, he said, Arpaio and his aides became "shady and unsavory people themselves."
     According to Young, all this activity shows intentional contempt.
     "That activity is not worth the sacrifices that rank-and-file MCSO employees make every day and the risks they take to their lives," Young said.
     It is unclear when Snow will issue a ruling.

Clock-Making Student Wants $15M for Arrest

What a bunch of BS this is.
Via Courthouse News
DALLAS (CN) - Ahmed Mohamed is demanding $15 million and written apologies from a Dallas suburb and school district for his arrest after his homemade clock was mistaken for a bomb at school, making the 14-year-old a worldwide celebrity.
     His attorney, Kelly D. Hollingsworth with Laney & Bollinger in Plainview, Texas, sent letters to officials with the city of Irving and the Irving Independent School District and demanded $10 million and $5 million, respectively.
     The letters give the city and school district 60 days to comply or face civil rights lawsuits. Mohamed's civil rights were violated and he was "clearly singled out" because he is Sudanese and Muslim, Hollingsworth writes.
     "Irving Police officials immediately determined that the clock was harmless. The only reason for the overreaction was that the responsible adults involved irrationally assumed that Ahmed was dangerous because of his race, national origin, and religion," the 10-page letter to the city states. "Let's face it; if Ahmed's clock were 'Jennifer's clock,' and if the pencil case were ruby red bedazzled with a clear rhinestone skull and crossbones on the cover, this would never have happened."
     Mohamed has stated the clock consisted of a circuit board and power supply wired to a digital display inside a mental pencil case with a tiger hologram on the front. A photograph of a bewildered Mohamed wearing a NASA T-shirt while being led away by police in handcuffs during his Sept. 16 arrest has been widely retweeted.
     "Ahmed never threatened anyone, never caused harm to anyone, and never intended to," Hollingsworth writes. "The only one who was hurt that day was Ahmed, and the damages he suffered were not because of oversight or incompetence. The school and city officials involved knew what they needed to do to protect Ahmed's rights. They just decided not to do it. Their after-the-fact attempts to couch their deliberate disregard of Ahmed's rights as being motivated by concerns for the safety of the other students has only added to the harm Ahmed and his family have suffered."
     Hollingsworth says Mohamed has suffered "clearly severe" monetary damages that are "quite difficult to quantify." He says Mohamed's name and likeness are now "forever associated with arguably the most contentious and divisive socio-political issue of our time."
     He says "Ahmed feel[s] the burden of responsibility for his siblings being harassed and scared to go to school, for his father's business suffering greatly from Mr. Mohamed's absence, for one of his sisters being fired from her job, and for neither of his older sisters being able to find schools in Qatar."
     Mohamed and his immediate family have since moved to Qatar, accepting a full scholarship from the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development for his remaining high school and undergraduate education. Hollingsworth says that other damages are easier to quantify, that Mohamed and his sisters had a right to a free and adequate public education.
     "Ahmed first attended Irving Independent School District in pre-K, and he and all of his siblings had gone to school nearly exclusively in the district," the letter states. "When, two days after the incident, in coordination with the city, [school principal] Daniel Cummings went on the MacArthur High School intercom system and called Ahmed and his family liars, he took that opportunity away from Ahmed and all of his siblings."
     Mohamed wants a written apology from Mayor Beth Van Duyne "acknowledging that she has never been presented with any evidence that Ahmed was a 'pawn' in any 'civilization jihad' or that the events here were planned by Ahmed's family or friends as part of an 'influence operation.'"
     He also wants written apologies from school district officials and Police Chief Larry Boyd acknowledging Mohamed "never intended to threaten anyone and that his detention, interrogation, and arrest were wrongful and were made at a point in time when there was no reasonable suspicion to believe that Ahmed had committed a crime or was about to commit any crime."


Taking the Responsibility to Secure the Homeland Seriously
In response to the recent terrorist attacks by radical Islamic jihadists in Paris, the House of Representatives recently passed the American SAFE Act (H.R. 4038).  This legislation, which I cosponsored, would pause the Syrian refugee program until the law enforcement and intelligence community can verify that each and every person coming to the United States isn’t a security threat.  You can see my remarks on the House floor on this important bill here.
You can also listen to my recent appearance on WBAP’s “The Chris Salcedo Show” here, where I discussed the Syrian refugee program. 
Working to Audit and Reform the Federal Reserve
Recently, the House passed legislation that would audit and reform the Federal Reserve to make it more transparent and accountable to the American people.  This legislation, the Fed Oversight and Reform and Modernization (FORM) Act (H.R. 3189), was legislation developed by the House Financial Services Committee, which I have the privilege to chair.  You can read my remarks I gave in support of the bill on the House floor here.
You can also see my Wall Street Journal op-ed regarding the FORM Act here.
Working to Stop the President’s Unconstitutional Executive Amnesty
Recently, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an injunction against President Obama’s unlawful executive action on immigration.  You can watch my appearance on Fox News Channel’s “The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson” here to catch my reaction to the court’s ruling and my thoughts on the President’s unconstitutional executive action on immigration. 
Appointing a Special Prosecutor to Investigate Hillary Clinton
Last week, I joined 43 of my house colleagues in sending a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch requesting the appointment of a Special Prosecutor in the ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private and unsecured server while conducting official State Department and government business. The Obama administration has not been cooperative or transparent, and the American people deserve to know the truth. This is why we have urged Attorney General Lynch to appoint an impartial special counsel to properly investigate this matter without bias. Read more about our actions in Breitbart here.

If Donald Trump were the GOP nominee, he would cause the highest voter turnout, relative to any other Republican hopeful.John Kasich, on the other hand, would keep people at home.
No matter what party affiliation you consider, Trump brings them out. Republicans, Democrats and independents are all most likely to show up if Trump is on the ballot. (In our analysis, we assumed a constant variable: the Democrats nominating Hillary Clinton.)
Not only do they show up to vote, but they vote for Trump. He's got the highest percentage of voters — across both parties and independents.
The other candidates cause more of a snooze response from the public. Among the Republicans surveyed, Kasich caused the lowest voter turnout. But Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Carly Fiorina all saw lower voter turnouts compared with Trump. To read more visit CNBC website here

Republican Establishment fails to attract the big money boys to bring Trump down

Republican Establishment fails to attract the big money boys to bring Trump down so far Koch brothers or political operative Karl Rove and his American Crossroads Pac are steering clear and waiting for Trump to fall on his own. If Trump continues to dominate the polls what will they do?
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump addresses around 14,000 supporters during a campaign rally in Columbus, Ohio,
From the Washington Post:
When Donald Trump landed in Ohio this week, he got a taste of the meager Republican super PAC efforts aimed at him: a 47-second Web video clipping together some of his most provocative comments and a small airplane trailing a banner proclaiming, “Ohioans Can’t Trust Trump.”
As the combative mogul enters his fifth month at the top of the GOP presidential field, attempts to derail him remain anemic, underfunded and unfocused — and they will probably stay that way until the Iowa caucuses in less than 10 weeks.
Most of the party’s financiers and top strategists are sitting on the sidelines. Many are reluctant to spend money against Trump after watching others fumble as they tried to handle his counterpunches. Others, citing past elections, remain confident that the race will eventually pivot away from him early next year.
The political network backed by the billionaire Koch brothers has no plans to take on Trump. American Crossroads, the super PAC co-founded by strategist Karl Rove, is steering clear and fixated on Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton instead. Right to Rise, the super PAC backing Jeb Bush, is not gearing up to attack Trump either. And major Republican donors, such as hedge-fund manager Paul Singer and the Ricketts family, have shown no interest in supporting the few organizations trying to undercut him.
“It is probably accurate to say there is very little money for these endeavors,” said Liz Mair, a Republican consultant who recently started an anti-Trump group called Trump Card. “Our group has donors and money, but it’s not like we have hundreds of people.”
Trump has reveled in the GOP’s hand-wringing over his candidacy and has taunted groups targeting him as a “disgrace.”
“I think people are surprised that, you know, they’re politicians and they’ve been doing this stuff all their lives. I haven’t. I’ve been a job producer,” Trump said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “I guess they can’t understand what’s happening.”
The absence of a big-money response to Trump is especially striking, given the mounting anxiety among GOP leaders about his lasting dominance in the race and his accumulation of incendiary statements. Some also are wary of trying to short-circuit him in a year when anger toward elites is boiling over. Read the rest of the story here.

Inside secret underground ISIS bomb-making lair found littered with US-made guns and drugs video

The underground tunnels, used by ISIS militants to hide from bomb raids, were discovered under Sinjar, which has only recently liberated from ISIS control.
The extremist fighters used the tunnels to move undetected and avoid coalition airstrikes.

Food and cooking utensils were also found around the passages as well as clothes hung on washing lines.
Prescription drugs and painkillers were seen on the floor, along with copies of the Quran and US manufactured boxes of ammunition and bomb-making equipment.

Wishing You A Safe and Calorie Free Thanksgiving

Lloyd Marcus: Why I Am Thankful This Thanksgiving.

Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving

Am I thankful? You betcha! The Bible says the more grateful you are, the more God blesses you. In celebration of Thanksgiving, I would like to share a few things I am thankful for. I am extremely grateful for Mary, my incredible beautiful wife of 39 years. I am grateful for my 87 year old preacher dad who is as mentally sharp as ever. I am grateful that I have been able to keep diabetes in check.

I am thankful for Donald Trump entering the race for the WH; boldly challenging political correctness and the mainstream media. In essence, Trump has been holding a clinic for GOP candidates teaching them how it is done. Despite taking on untouchable PC sacred cow issues, MSM lies and dirty tricks, Trump's campaign has survived; his poll numbers continue to rise. Trump exposing the MSM as blowhards roaring from behind a curtain has emboldened other GOP candidates to say what they mean and mean what they say. Thank God, it is about time.

I am thankful that black conservative and unapologetic Christian Dr Ben Carson is also seeking the GOP 2016 presidential nomination. Millions of black youths are being exposed to a black American who loves his country. Dr Carson does not view himself as a victim and is proof positive that the American dream is alive and well for those willing to work hard and make right choices.

It is reprehensible that the hate group Black Lives Matter and mainstream media rallies behind black thugs and criminals while doing everything in their power to destroy Dr Carson. That should tell you all you need to know about these evil vipers.

I am thankful that brilliant and trustworthy Sen Ted Cruz is a contender for the GOP nomination. Cruz is a rock solid conservative who would be a great president.

I am thankful that despite the MSM's best efforts to cover for him, a majority of Americans are no longer falling for Obama telling them the sun is shining in the middle of international thunder storms. Sixty-four percent of Americans disapprove of how Obama is handling ISIS.

But most of all folks, I am extremely thankful that so many of you have refused to surrender our country to the evil forces seeking to destroy America as founded. Obama and his minions are attempting to transform America into a nation totally dependent and controlled by government.

Though not reported, patriots are using their gifts, talents and passion to fight back; committed to restoring America. And for that, I am extremely grateful. Rush Limbaugh's American history children books are best sellers. Dale Newberry's American Pride Calendar is another winner. Tea Party and 9/12 groups across America are as active as ever; gearing up for the 2016 fight for the WH.

God honors our faithfulness folks.

Normally a black man breaking into a white woman's apartment would end badly. Over 40 years ago, Mary locked herself out of her apartment and asked me, her neighbor, to break in by climbing through her window. Rather than acting like a racially hypersensitive idiot, I took the opportunity to be her hero. That night, we talked for several hours; soul-mates.

Mary is cooking a 14 pound turkey in her grandmother's roaster that we have used for the past 30 years. I will watch the Detroit Lions lose and probably nod-off on the sofa; a perfect day. The following day I will resume fighting to take back our country.

Have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving folks.
Mary and Lloyd Marcus, The Unhyphenated American
