One of the top priorities (so we were told) of the Republican party with a Republican President was to repeal Obamacare. I have been saying for years that Obamacare was never going to be repealed, the last chance to repeal Obamacare died alongside Mitt Romney’s candidacy. And now the repeal effort has been stalled in the Congress.
The Republicans have vowed to repeal Obamacare since it was rammed through the Congress using parliamentary gimmicks and they have actually passed dozens of repeal bills while Barack Obama was President but they cannot pass even one now that they are in power.
I still remember the time not all that long ago when Democrats were all up in arms at the attacks Barack Obama was taking from the right on a daily basis. Some of the so-called attacks were legitimate but the ones that really irritated the left were the personal attacks–such as the “birther” issue and the “Obama is a Muslim” issue. Some compared Barack Obama to Hitler and called him a Fascist and we were told this was way beyond the line–the office of the President should be honored even if the man is not. Of course many of these same people compared George Bush to Hitler and called him a Fascist but let that go…
Apparently times have changed because now it is en-vogue to call the President a Fascist and compare him to Hitler and we see it on a daily basis. Now Maxine Waters has entered the fray with a personal attack on Donald Trump’s cabinet members–calling them all “scumbags.” Here is more:
A couple of weeks ago the New Hampshire House passed a Constitutional carry bill and it was sent to the Governor’s desk for his signature. I was getting a little worried because while Governor Sununu had previously stated his support for the legislation I found it odd he had not as of yet signed the bill. I was beginning to think he was having second thoughts but my worries were short-lived because today Constitutional carry became the law in the State of New Hampshire. Law abiding citizens of the State will now be allowed to carry concealed without a permit and the change took place immediately.
Here is more:
Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed legislation Wednesday removing the requirement that people get a license from local officials to carry concealed guns.
The National Rifle Association says that makes New Hampshire the 11th state — including Vermont and Maine — that doesn’t require a license or permit in most cases. Sununu’s Democratic predecessor, now U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan, vetoed similar legislation multiple times.
“This is about making sure that our laws on our books are keeping people safe while remaining true to that ‘live free or die’ spirit that makes New Hampshire the great state that it is,” Sununu said before signing the bill. He was flanked by gun rights activists and fellow Republican lawmakers.
Here in New Hampshire we could always carry a firearm open without a permit but a permit was required to carry a concealed weapon but today our Second Amendment right is no longer being infringed. The Second Amendment is our concealed carry permit.

Here at America’s Watchtower we have often talked about how the mainstream media no longer reports the news but instead tries to create the news to push an agenda. Polls are used in the same way as well. But it is not very often the mainstream media actually admits what it is up to. Today that changed when MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, most likely fueled by her anti-Trump bias, actually admitted it was the media’s job to control what people think. Here is the clip:

We have known for quite some time that NOAA and NASA were fudging the global temperatures in order to “hide the decline” and to “prove” the 97% lie. Some of this was confirmed when a NOAA whistle-blower came forth and admitted the agency fudged the numbers heading into the United Nations global warming summit of 2015 in order to push its agenda.
And now we are learning, according to this story, that NOAA lost some of the agency’s data when their computers crashed because the agency was not using the proper protocol to back up the data. Here is more:
In a second breach of agency protocol, the scientists involved, led by Tom Karl, failed to properly archive and store their datasets for testing and public disclosure.
Subsequently, some of the original datasets were lost when the computer used to process the data suffered a complete failure.
Here is some of what NOAA was up to before their computer conveniently crashed:
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly moved Tuesday to implement a host of immigration enforcement changes ordered by President Trump, directing agency heads to hire thousands more officers, end so-called “catch-and-release” policies and begin work on the president’s promised U.S.-Mexico border wall.
“It is in the national interest of the United States to prevent criminals and criminal organizations from destabilizing border security,” Kelly wrote in one of two memos released Tuesday by the department.
The memos follow up on Trump’s related executive actions from January and, at their heart, aim to toughen enforcement by expanding the categories of illegal immigrants targeted for deportation.
One group of people who will be spared are the “dreamers.” When Donald Trump signed his Executive Orders on immigration he claimed the orders focused on enforcing existing laws and that is what this appears to do for the most part.
I was not going to write anything about this because Barack Obama is gone and this will go nowhere anyway however there was nothing else I found interesting enough to write about so here goes.
Judicial Watch–which continues to do the job the Congress failed to do–has uncovered through a Freedom of Information Act request that Jeh Johnson, while head of the Department of Homeland Security, also used an unsecured email account to transmit sensitive information. And he was not alone, there were three others in the department that followed suit.
