Sisi praises Trump, expects more US engagement in region

Cairo (AFP) – Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi praised US President-elect Donald Trump and said he expected greater engagement in the Middle East from his administration, in an interview with Portuguese media.

The former Egyptian army chief had strained relations with outgoing President Barack Obama’s administration, which had temporarily suspended military aid after Sisi toppled his elected predecessor in 2013.

“Personally I respect and appreciate” Trump, Sisi said according to an English translation of his remarks to Portuguese news agency LUSA published on Saturday.

“I believe that President-elect Trump will be more rigorously engaged with the issues of the region,” he said.

“As a matter of fact President-elect Trump has shown deep and great understanding of what is taking place in the region as a whole and what is taking place in Egypt,” he added.

“That is why I am looking forward, and I am expecting more support and more reinforcement of our bilateral relations”.

Trump’s tough-on-terrorism rhetoric has appeal among Egyptian officials, as the country faces a jihadist insurgency that has killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers.

The insurgency took off after the military overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013, unleashing a deadly crackdown on supporters.

Sisi, who had met Trump in September in New York, downplayed Trump’s calls to ban or extremely vet Muslims entering the United States.

“We have got to draw a distinction between the rhetoric that takes place within presidential campaigns and the real and actual administration of a country after the inauguration of a president,” he said.

( –   Republicans added to their historic 2014 gains in the nation’s state legislatures with the addition of five state House chambers and two state Senate chambers in last week’s election, while Democratic control was reduced to levels not seen since the Civil War.

Republicans are now in control of a record 67 (68 percent) of the 98 partisan state legislative chambers in the nation, more than twice the number (31) in which Democrats have a majority, according to the bipartisan National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL).

“That’s more than at any other time in the history of the Republican Party,” according to NCSL. “They also hold more total seats, well over 4,100 of the 7,383, than they have since 1920.”

Next year, the GOP will control both legislative chambers in 32 states – an all-time high, according to NCSL – while Democrats will have total control of just 13 state legislatures.

In 24 of the 32 states with Republican-controlled legislatures, voters have also elected Republican governors. In contrast, Democrats have a “political trifecta” in just six states.

Since 2009, when President Obama took office, his party has lost a total of 919 seats in state legislatures nationwide, according to NCSL data.

In 2009, Democrats had total control of 27 state legislatures, and held a majority in at least one chamber in eight more states where power was divided. In contrast, Republicans controlled just 14 state legislatures.

During Obama’s first year in office, Democrats held 1,024 of the 1,971 total state Senate seats in the nation, compared to 889 in Republican hands. They also held 3,058 of the total 5,411 state House seats, compared to 2,334 for Republicans.

In addition, there were 28 Democratic governors, compared to 22 Republican governors.

However, near the end of Obama’s two terms in office, the partisan balance in the nation’s state legislatures has been completely reversed.

As of Nov. 7, 2016, there are just 823 Democratic state senators out of a total of 1,972 seats nationwide, according to NCSL data. Meanwile, Republicans have increased their ranks to 1,089.

Likewise, of the 5,411 state House seats, there are now 3,029 Republicans compared to 2,340 Democrats – a mirror image of both parties’ status in 2009.

The Democrats’ prior advantage in the nation’s governors’ mansions when Obama took office has also been lost. There are currently 31 Republican governors, 18 Democratic governors and one Independent (Gov. Bill Walker of Alaska).

“Republicans grabbed more of America’s statehouses and governors’ mansions during the Obama administration than at any time in the modern era,” the Washington Post’s Amber Phillips reported.

Last week’s historic flip of the Kentucky House – the last Democrat-controlled legislative chamber in the South – to Republican hands for the first time in nearly 100 years underscores the point.

In 2010, Democrats in the Kentucky House held a solid 65-35 majority.  Six years later, the GOP now has a supermajority, and will control 62 of the chamber’s 100 seats.

“Democrats are now basically extinct in the South,” Phillips noted.

“Republicans bested expectations,” said Dan Diorio, a policy expert at NCSL. “Having already reached the peak of control in party history, Republicans will maintain a similar level of control in a year when many expected Democrats to net seats and chambers.”

”Anyone who said that Donald Trump was going to be a drag on down-ticket races is certainly eating their words right now,” Lisa Nelson, CEO of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) told

“When I talk to the states, most of them say they picked up state Senate or House seats because of Donald Trump. And I think that’s because of the forgotten man or woman people are talking about, who hadn’t shown up to vote in the past.”

Although most of the mainstream media failed to predict that Trump would win, those following state legislative races were not surprised by his victory, Nelson added.

“People in the states saw this race tightening easily a week before the election. In particular, I was talking to somebody in Wisconsin who said they were going to pick up seats because of Donald Trump on the ticket, and sure enough they did,” she told CNSNews. “A lot of those voters ‘came home’ in the last week or two. They were talking, but a lot of the media wasn’t listening.”

dnc-cry-baby-sealWHAT THE DEMOCRATS LOST IN 2016

They are completely unhinged now. The Democrat Party lost virtually all political power. Just days before the General Election which also included the Presidential Election, delusional Democrats were falsely exuberant, boldly predicting a total washout by the Republicans and their candidate Donald Trump – the consummate outsider. They taunted at every opportunity, “There’s no way in hell a racist, misogynist, narcissistic bully can beat Hillary Clinton; he’s not qualified; she has 30+ years experience in government, she is the only qualified candidate!”


Here is the obvious damage control report:
◆ House
◆ Senate
◆ White House
◆ Supreme Court
◆ 32 state governorship
◆ Global Warming Hoax
◆ DACA & DAPA (Dreamers)
◆ Anti 2nd A gun confiscation
◆ Anti 1st A free speech suppression

What is not so obvious
What we cannot easily see beyond the tip of the giant iceberg melting away below the surface – in waters warmed by Republican-caused Global Warming.  Their party, “the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored…” is being trampled upon.

The Holy Bible cites many examples of the seven years of plague and misery, which coincides with the eighth year of Obama’s destructive reign. In his first year in office, he set about the implementation of his plan to undo God’s Divine Gift to the citizens of the United States – the most Blessed, most generous and rightly prosperous nation this earth has ever witnessed. For allowing him the presidency, we had to endure seven years of biblical setback. Let us pray the Lord spare us from such an unworthy mistake again.


TRIUMPH! Make America Great Again!

Make America Great Again!

It’s been a long time coming, and I firmly believe we are on the precipice of a revival that happens but once every 100 years. There is much to be done, and we could not have selected a more energetic and capable leader than President-Elect Donald Trump, and Vice-President Elect Mike Pence.  Patriotic Americans wish them every success during their term. May God continue to Bless the USA as we Make America Great Again!

Repairing the Obama Disaster

There is no denying anymore that this great nation has suffered tremendously during a bastardized Obama Regime; a regime filled with markers more akin and commonplace in third-worldly nations on the African continent; leads one to pause and wonder if it is purely coincidental, or is more plausible that Obama is, after all, the proud son of an African Marxist.

And why is that so? Was the upending of our traditions purposeful? Is it even fair to accuse Obama of commanding a 5th Column whose strategic objective was to chip away at our institutions while the main column marched along as though nothing untoward happened?

Then let us be fair and objective and begin by identifying some “probable cause” as prescribed by the 5th Amendment, which teaches us to avoid pressing false charges. We shall employ the method of Comparative Analysis in an attempt to assign weight and credibility.


Observation of media accounts in summary:

Anytime a black man died during some interaction with the police, President Obama wastes no time calling a press conference and immediately accuses the police of targeting and somehow persecuting young black men for no apparent reason. THEN…
Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch would jump into her plane – fueled and waiting – so she can be on scene ready to sic the FBI and her own prosecutors on the police department involved, in a fashion with all the appearances of a military siege. We Conservatives call that excessive and heavy-handed and more akin to 3rd world BS.

Encouraged and practically cheered on by POTUS (President of the United States) and protected by the nation’s top cop Loretta Lynch, some misguided blacks and some white anarchists targeted the police-at-large. Every week, one-two or three police officers would get shot or killed in an ambush; this is unprecedented, and simply cannot happen spontaneously.

And the response or reaction from POTUS or Atty Gen Loretta Lynch? NOT A DAMN THING.

Obama is not a sneaky little bastard by accident; NO, he is is sneaky little bastard BY DESIGN. He learned from the cleverest Marxist, introduces through his Kenyan Marxist father – a seditious Communist named Saul Alinsky who molded Hillary Clinton too.
