@RealDonaldTrump Must have Our Respect! This Is How @PeterBoykin Practices His #FreeSpeech In Greensboro NC #MarchForTrump

Free Speech at City Hall tonight

I am here to let the city know of the rally at Noon on June 15th here at Governmental Plaza this is the 3rd Annual March for Trump, in the past I had them in Washington DC, but this year I figured the Greensboro could use the economic boost such a March can bring.

I know most here in this city hall speaking today is not supportive of See More Trump due to their misconceptions and the brainwashing of both their political party and the mainstream medias disservice towards our President.

Instead of focusing on President Trump’s accomplishments the mainstream media is completely ignoring them and has chosen to wage a campaign against the President, his supporters and the MAGA agenda. The Fake News Media has become a political arm of the extreme left and together, they are all trying their hardest to paint a picture of failure and disaster which is all a lie.

Donald J. Trump has achieved more for America in 2 years than the previous administration did in 8 years. It really makes you wonder if past presidents have even been trying at all! Many of President Trump’s accomplishments you won’t see covered on Television News at all. Any “Pro Trump” news or even news of Pro Trump Rally’s will then be quickly buried and discarded. Even “Pro-Trump” Fox News is guilty of ignoring Pro Trump Rallies and Focusing on the many negative rallies out there, for that I ask Why?

What I do know is that there is one thing that the Establishment Republicans, Democrats, the Far Extremist Left, and the Fake News Media all have in common… They want President Trump to fail.

But, what I am here to say is that will not discourage good people to fight for what they believe in.

We don’t want globalism, we don’t want open borders and we don’t want socialism nor communism and Anti Americans spreading crime and the destruction of American values in America.

THIS ALSO GOES FOR THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA AND MOST IMPORTANTLY HERE IN GREENSBORO WHO DESPERATELY NEEDS MORE REPUBLICAN PRO TRUMP LEADERSHIPEBELIEVE…

We Believe …the strength of our the nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.

We Believe…in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, sexual orientation, age or disability.

We Believe…free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.

We Believe…government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of their own money they earn.

We Believe…the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.

We Believe…the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.

We Believe…Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.

We Believe…Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.

We Believe…the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.

If this too is what you believe, I hope to see you at the PEACEFUL March for Trump June 15 here in Greensboro NC

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin denied Giving Up @RealDonaldTrump Taxes. Do You Think It’s Their Business? #MAGAFirstNews w/@PeterBoykin

Showdown over Barr contempt charges brewing; Court battle over Trump tax records developing Dems ready to hold Barr in contempt, Starr blasts leak of ‘whiny’ Mueller letter As Democrats scheduled a vote this Wednesday on whether to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress, former independent counsel Ken Starr sharply See More criticized the leak of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s letter following Barr’s summary of the Russia report. Details of the March 24 letter went public shortly before Barr testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. Multiple news outlets reported that Mueller raised concerns about how Barr’s conclusions from the investigation were being portrayed. In an interview on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” on Monday, Starr called the release of the letter an “unforgivable sin” and said Mueller’s complaints were “whiny.” Wednesday’s scheduled contempt vote on Barr is based on the Justice Department’s failure to provide the full text of Mueller’s report by a Monday morning deadline.

Court battle over Trump’s tax records developing Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has denied House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal’s request for President Trump’s tax returns, setting up a likely court battle. In a letter on Monday, Mnuchin said he’d relied on the advice of the Justice Department and concluded the request lacked a “legitimate legislative purpose.” Mnuchin’s decision is sure to set in motion a legal battle over Trump’s tax returns. The likely options available to Democrats would be to subpoena the Internal Revenue Service for the returns or to file a lawsuit.

Trump pardons former Army lieutenant convicted of killing suspected al Qaeda terrorist President Trump has pardoned a former Army lieutenant who was convicted in 2009 of killing an Iraqi prisoner suspected of being an Al Qaeda terrorist, the White House announced Monday evening. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders cited “broad support” for Michael Behenna, of Edmond, Okla., “from the military, Oklahoma elected officials, and the public” — including 37 generals and admirals, along with a former Pentagon inspector general — as the reason for Trump’s clemency grant. Sanders also said Behenna had been a “model prisoner” while serving his sentence. A military court originally sentenced Behenna to 25 years for unpremeditated murder in a combat zone. However, the Army’s highest appellate court noted concern about how the trial court had handled Behenna’s claim of self-defense, Sanders said. The Army Clemency and Parole Board reduced his sentence to 15 years and paroled him in 2014, as soon as he was eligible.

Ingraham gets an up-close look at the border crisis On Monday’s edition of “The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham joined the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to get an exclusive lookat the border crossing in Del Rio, Texas. 

Awaiting the royal reveal Britain’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed a bouncing baby boy early Monday morning, and now the world is waiting to find out the royal newborn’s name and what he looks like. On Monday, a jubilant Harry said he and Markle still hadn’t decided on his name. Images of the baby boy were not released. A few details were released in statement on Instagram. “We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz.,” the couple announced. “The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives. More details will be shared in the forthcoming days.”

Unlike weak Obama @realdonaldTrump deploys forces to send a Clear message to Iran Do You Think This Is Good? #MagaFirstNews W/.@PeterBoykin U.S. deploys forces to send message to Iran; Trump says no do-overs for Dems on Mueller U.S. sending Iran a ‘clear and unmistakable message’ The U.S. is sending the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the Middle East in order “to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime,” National See More Security Adviser John Bolton announced Sunday night. Bolton said the deployment was in response to “a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” on the part of Tehran, but did not elaborate. “[A]ny attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force,” Bolton said. “The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces.” Trump: Mueller should not testify, no do-overs for Dems President Trump is not in favor of Special Counsel Robert Mueller testifying before the House Judiciary Committee on May 15 and answering questions about his findings on Russian interference in the 2016 election. Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., told “Fox News Sunday” that a tentative date of May 15 has been set for Mueller to appear before the House Judiciary Committee and face questioning over his report. The Rhode Island lawmaker said that while there is no guarantee that Mueller will show up to the hearing, he heard nothing from either Mueller’s representatives or the White House to indicate that the special counsel would not testify. On Twitter on Sunday, the president questioned why Democrats wanted Mueller to testify and stated again that there was “No collusion” between his campaign in 2016 and Russia. “Bob Mueller should not testify. No redos for the Dems!” Trump tweeted. Trump’s or Obama’s? Whose economy is it? National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow denounced Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., Sunday after the 2020 White House candidatesaid President Trump was “taking credit for a recovery that started under [former President Barack] Obama.” “What Mr. Booker and some others are saying is simply not true factually,” Kudlow told Fox News’ “America’s News HQ.” Kudlow spoke two days after the publication of the April jobs report, which showed that the American economy added 263,000 jobs last month while the unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent, the lowest since 1969. Despite the rosy numbers, Booker insisted that the boom’s effects were not being felt across all economic levels. China threatened with tariff hike by week’s end President Trump has threatened to hike tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods to 25 percent at the end of the week, as trade talks with China appeared to be stalling. He tweeted his frustration over how slowly the negotiations were progressing, writing: “The Trade Deal with China continues, but too slowly, as they attempt to renegotiate. No!” President Trump, who has called himself a “tariff man”, vowed to hike import taxes on $200 billion in Chinese products from 10 percent to 25 percent. His comments came as Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He is preparing to travel to Washington this week to resume negotiations, with both sides trying to end a trade war that has affected the global economy. Former Trump ‘fixer’ reporting to prison President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen heads to jail on Monday to begin serving a three-year sentence for campaign-finance violations, tax evasion, bank fraud and lying to Congress. Cohen spent his final weekend of freedom trying to maintain a semblance of normalcy — leaving his Manhattan apartment building on Saturday with his son to go to a coffee shop and then to a barbershop. They both got haircuts. Cohen’s next stop was the pricy store Barneys New York, where he told journalists that he plans to hold a news conference Monday before heading to prison. Trebek wins Daytime Emmy, gets standing ovation with cancer joke Alex Trebek got a standing ovation as he accepted an Emmy Award as host of “Jeopardy!” — and immediately set the audience at ease, even as he alluded to his cancer diagnosis. Trebek, 78, who announced in March he has advanced pancreatic cancer, told the theater audience Sunday he had been worried that sympathy, rather than merit, might snare him the trophy for best game show host. But then he mulled what happened last year, after he underwent surgery to remove life-threatening blood clots on his brain. “You think that would have elicited a certain amount of sympathy. But I didn’t win!” he said, drawing roars from the crowd that moments before rose to applaud him.

Ukraine embassy says DNC operative reached out for dirt on Trump in 2016& @RealDonaldTrump Says It’s Done Is It? #MAGAFirstNews @PeterBoykin Trump tells Dems ‘It’s done,’ says McGahn won’t testify; Ukraine embassy says DNC operative sought Trump info Trump tells Dems ‘it’s over,’ says McGahn won’t testify, hits Biden’s ‘very dumb statement’ in Fox News interview President Trump told Fox News in an exclusive wide-ranging interview Thursday evening that the White House has lost patience See More with congressional Democrats, and forcefully dismissed their efforts to subpoena former White House counsel Don McGahn and other administration officials to testify. “They’ve testified for many hours, all of them. I would say, it’s done,” Trump told Fox News’ Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge. “Nobody has ever done what I’ve done. I’ve given total transparency. It’s never happened before like this. They shouldn’t be looking anymore. It’s done.” Attorney General Bill Barr made the right call in deciding not to appear before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Trump said, following his testimony Wednesday in the Senate. House Democrats had insisted that committee counsel, rather than members of Congress, question Barr. Ukraine embassy says DNC operative reached out for dirt on Trump in 2016 Ukraine’s embassy wrote that a Democratic National Committee (DNC) insider reached out in 2016 seeking dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump’s team, according to a bombshell new report Thursday that further fueled Republican allegations that Democrats were the ones improperly colluding with foreign agents during the campaign. Ambassador Valeriy Chaly said DNC contractor Alexandra Chalupa pushed for Ukraine’s then-President Petro Poroshenko to mention Paul Manafort’s ties to Ukraine publicly during a visit to the U.S., and sought detailed financial information on his dealings in the country, the Hill reported. At the time, Manafort was Trump’s campaign chairman.

Alabama Dem attacks Trump Jr. with slur after abortion comments spark outcry The Democrat from Alabama who sparked outrage with his remarks defending abortion attacked Donald Trump Jr., saying he’s “proof” that mothers should have the right to abort their children. State Rep. John Rogers of Birmingham caused an uproar while expressing his opposition to the approved bill that would outlaw all abortions in Alabama with the exception of those for women whose pregnancies cause a risk to their health. Florida Legislature passes GOP ban on sanctuary-city policies; DeSantis expected to sign into law The Florida Legislature passed a high-profile Republican bill on Thursday banning sanctuary policies that protect undocumented immigrants and requiring law enforcement officials to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. The bill passed the House on a 68-45 vote with Democrats opposed, shortly after it cleared the Senate by a 22-18 mostly party-line vote, as the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported. Gov. Ron DeSantis has supported the measure and is expected to sign it into law. Another conflict of interest pops up in Kim Foxx’s handling of Jussie Smollett case The Cook County, Ill., judge set to decide whether a special prosecutor should be appointed to investigate why charges were dropped against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has a son who works in the state’s attorney’s office. The news sets up another potential conflict of interest for State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office and its handling of the controversial case. Judge Leroy Martin Jr. addressed a petition Thursday filed by retired Appellate Judge Sheila O’Brien to recuse himself and assign the case to a judge outside Cook County. Martin’s son, Leroy Martin III, is an assistant state’s attorney who has worked under Foxx for more than a year. He was hired in April 2018.

Covington Catholic High School student sues NBC for $275 million – Should He Get It? #MAGAFirstNews with @PeterBoykin Attorney General Barr to be a no-show at House hearing, could face contempt charge, subpoena Barr to skip House hearing, could face subpoena, contempt charge After Wednesday’s contentious day of testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the Mueller report, Attorney General William Barr informed the House Judiciary Committee that he would not testify Thursday See More as scheduled, prompting threats of subpoenas from Democrats and a possible contempt citation. Democrats have vowed to hold the hearing anyway, leaving open the possibility of the spectacle of House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., gaveling a hearing with an empty chair reserved for Barr. A key sticking point was that Nadler wanted to have House Judiciary Committee staff — rather than members of Congress — question him on his handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation. But DOJ officials said members should conduct the inquiry, and it was unclear why Democrats did not propose having staffers provide questions to members during the hearing. The rift between Barr and Congressional Democrats was the backdrop for a tense day of testimony Wednesday where the attorney general accused the lawmakers of using criminal justice process as “political weapon” ahead of the 2020 presidential election and declared the Justice Department’s role in the Russia probe controversy “over.” President Trump, in an interview on Fox Business’ “Trish Regan Primetime,” praised Barr’s testimony but said lawmakers treated him “differently” than anyone else. Rep. Omar believes US ‘bullying’ has contributed to Venezuela chaos Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, suggested Wednesday that the United States could be partly to blame for the ongoing turmoil in Venezuela, saying the policies of the Trump administration had “kind of helped lead the devastation.” Appearing on “Democracy Now,” a news program broadcast on PBS, Omar was asked to weigh in on what the host described as a “U.S.-supported coup attempt” against Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro. “A lot of the policies that we have put in place [have] kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela and we have sort of set the stage for where we are arriving today,” she said. “This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States.” Biden and Romney give opposite views of China’s threat to the US Former Vice President Joe Biden expressed his lack of concern over China as a global competitor to the U.S. at a rally on Wednesday, prompting a grim response from Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, on Twitter. Biden, the 2020 Democratic frontrunner, mocked those who have taken China seriously. “China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man!” Biden exclaimed. “They’re not competition for us.” That sparked a reaction from Romney, who ran against Biden’s running mate, former President Barack Obama, in 2012. “This will not age well,” Romney predicted in a tweet. CLICK HERE for an in-depth look at Biden’s questionable international deals and why “The Next Revolution” host Steve Hilton refers to the former vice president as “Joe China.” Covington Catholic High School student sues NBC for $275 million Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann is suing NBCUniversal for a whopping $275 million for defamation over the media coverage he received earlier this year, his lawyer said Wednesday. Sandmann was at the center of a viral controversy back in January, alongside reports suggesting that he and his classmates had initiated a confrontation with Native American elder Nathan Phillips outside the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Subsequent reporting and video evidence contradicted that version of events. This marks the third major lawsuit Sandmann’s legal team has launched. The team is also suing the Washington Post for $250 million as well as CNN for $275 million. Sandmann’s lawyer previously suggested that the Associated Press and HBO could face similar lawsuits. Imagine Dragons beats out Queen at Billboard Music Awards – and Twitter explodes Some fans are upset after Imagine Dragons bested the iconic rock band Queen to take home the coveted Top Rock Artist honor Wednesday evening at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. “Imagine dragons won a rock award over queen, one of the best rock bands of all time,” tweeted one social media user, while many others echoed the same frustration with the decision. “What kind of world gives best rock band to @Imaginedragons over Queen?” wrote another viewer. Aside from the controversy over Imagine Dragons versus Queen, here is the complete winners list for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.

Border Patrol nabs ‘largest group’ of illegal immigrants yet near US-Mexico border #MagaFirstNews W/@PeterBoykin Venezuela braces for possible second day of violence; Barr to face grilling over Mueller report Venezuela in chaos Opposition leader Juan Guaidó has called for a new round of mass protests on Wednesday after a day of violent uprising in Venezuela against disputed President Nicolas Maduro. After being absent for most of the day, Maduro took to the airwaves to proclaim that See More Guaidó’s rebellion had been defeated. However, that did not stop Guaidó, who is recognized by the U.S. and more than 50 other nations as Venezuela’s rightful president, from calling for more protests. Opposition forces hope that fed-up Venezuelans will be so angered by broadcast images of armored vehicles plowing into protesters that they will continue to riot in the streets. And in a blow to Maduro, Manuel Ricardo Cristopher Figuera, the head of Venezuela’s feared secret police, turned his back on the disputed leader in an open letter made public Tuesday night. Judith Miller: For Venezuela, is the moment now? Pompeo: Maduro was ‘ready’ to leave Venezuela before Russia convinced him to stay Barr to face grilling in Senate as new reports about Mueller raise eyebrows Senate Democrats are expected to grill Attorney General William Barr in a dramatic and explosive hearing Wednesday morning, as he faces lawmakers’ questions for the first time since releasing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report amid accusations he sought to present the investigation’s findings in President Trump’s favor. In a late-breaking article sure to feature prominently in Wednesday’s hearing, the Washington Post reported Tuesday evening that Mueller contacted Barr, both in a letter and in a phone call, to express concerns after Barr released his own public summary of the report in March. Mueller reportedly pushed Barr to release the executive summaries written by the special counsel’s office. However, according to both the Post and the Justice Department, Mueller made clear that he did not feel Barr’s summary was inaccurate. Instead, Mueller told Barr that media coverage of the letter had “misinterpreted” the results of the probe concerning obstruction of justice. Border Patrol nabs ‘largest group’ of illegal immigrants yet near US-Mexico border The U.S. Border Patrol on Tuesday morning apprehended its largest group of illegal immigrants caught at once, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported. CBP, which oversees the Border Patrol, said 424 illegal aliens were apprehended just after midnight in Sunland Park, N.M.; an additional 230 illegal aliens were apprehended in Antelope Wells, N.M., around 2 a.m. “This is an ongoing situation that U.S Border Patrol agents are facing in southern New Mexico: Hundreds of parents and children being encountered by agents after having faced a dangerous journey in the hands of unscrupulous smugglers,” CBP said in a statement. Border officials said they were struggling to cope with the influx of Central American families, with Border Patrol apprehending a record-setting 53,000 families in March. ‘Mayor Pete’s’ stance on vaccinations draws criticism South Bend, Ind., mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is drawing some backlash for his stance on mandatory vaccinations. BuzzFeed reported that Buttigieg supports states’ rights to mandate vaccinations, but also supports “some exceptions.” “The law of the land for more than a century has been that states may enforce mandatory vaccination for public safety to prevent the spread of a dangerous disease. Pete does support some exceptions, except during a public health emergency to prevent an outbreak,” a spokesman for Buttigieg told BuzzFeed. The 37-year-old progressive listed personal/religious exemptions, but reiterated that there must be “no public health crisis” for the exemptions to be honored. Smollett-less ‘Empire’ Fox Entertainment’s hit show “Empire” was officially picked up for a sixth season — but without one of its controversial mainstays, Jussie Smollett. “By mutual agreement, the studio has negotiated an extension to Jussie Smollett’s option for season six, but at this time there are no plans for the character of Jamal to return to ‘Empire,’” Fox Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV said in a statement to Fox News on Tuesday. Smollett’s spokesperson said the actor was grateful to Fox for keeping the future of his character Jamal open and was grateful to the cast, crew and leadership of “Empire” for their unwavering support. Smollett faces a lawsuit from the city of Chicago after prosecutors dropped 16 felony disorderly conduct charges against him for his alleged role in a hate-crime hoax scandal.
