First, here is fantastic news – the Brexit withdrawal agreement bill has been given Royal Assent, meaning that it has become law and Britain will officially leave the European Union on January 31st.
Wonderful. This is a major body blow to oppressive globalist control of our world. We can expect this movement to spread as time passes, with Donald Trump as the towering international figure leading it.
Now here is today’s first commentary:
Democrats know that their impeachment gambit is going to fail. There are not 67 votes in the US Senate to remove president Trump from office. There are probably 47 votes – all Independents and Democrats.
That is precisely why the Founders of American made removal from office a two-thirds majority – so that impeachment does not become a tool to simply get rid of a president.
And when impeachment fails, president Trump is going to be strengthened going into the November election. He will say, “They threw the Russia hoax at me, and then impeachment, and every other charge. But I am still standing and the nation is doing better than ever.”
There is an old saying that ‘what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger’. Democrats had better watch out – this applies to president Trump. Nikitas3.com believes that impeachment already has backfired and strengthened the president.
Rest assured that Democrats are going to go totally insane when the Senate fails to remove the president from office. They will scream that the Republicans are covering up for the president, that the Senate trial was rigged, that Russia interfered, and every other charge. They may even impeach the president again.
After all they must do something to defeat the president since they know that they cannot beat him at the ballot box.
Meanwhile Nancy Pelosi has been bragging that the Trump impeachment will always be on the president’s record. But Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz said:
“Nancy Pelosi doesn’t understand what impeachment is.
“What she has said is, even if the president is acquitted, the impeachment stands – No.”
“That’s like saying that, if a person is indicted and the jury acquits 12-0 in five minutes, he’s still indicted.”
“No – the impeachment disappears. The impeachment is only a grand jury presentment.”
Another Great Trump Speech
President Trump gave a fantastic speech to the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland.
Trump was well received in Davos. Long considered a bastion of globalist blowhards, the president is changing that with his appearances there. He spoke openly about American nationalism and the improved capitalist US economy which surely generated envy among many world leaders whose national economies are failing under socialist policies.
Here are a few quotes from the speech with a Nikitas3.com comment after each:
Trump said: “A nation’s highest duty is to its own citizens. Honoring this truth is the only way to build faith and confidence in the market system. Only when governments put their own people first will people be fully invested in their national futures.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Wow. This sounds like common sense and it is true. But for decades the globalists have made us think that this is not true, that we are all part of a ‘world village’ with no borders and no nation standing out. Thus the president is truly re-shaping the political agenda from globalism to nationalism. We also are seeing this in Britain’s exit from the European Union.
Trump said: “A pro-worker, pro-citizen, pro-family agenda demonstrates how a nation can thrive when its communities, its companies, its government work together for the good of the whole nation.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Fantastic. Normally “the good of the whole nation” has been interpreted by the global media as socialist control. But we are seeing that the opposite is true. Few Americans would trade our current capitalist economic well-being under Trump for the static economy that we had during the Obama years.
Trump said: “Today I hold up the American model as an example to the world of a working system of free enterprise that will produce the most benefits for the most people in the 21st century and beyond.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Yes indeed. And what did the globalists and socialists predict when Trump was elected? They predicted a stock market collapse and an economic implosion. Yet the opposite has happened. In fact it was under Obama that economic pessimism ruled and tens of millions of American had lost hope.
Trump said: “We must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse. They are the heirs of yesterday’s foolish fortunetellers. These alarmists always demand the same thing, absolute power to dominate, transform, and control every aspect of our lives. We will never let radical socialists destroy our economy, wreck our country or eradicate our liberty.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Good. He is taking on the ‘greenie’ doomsayers like they have never been confronted before. They have been coddled by the media elite with no challenge to their veracity. This teenage twit Greta Thunberg from Sweden is a sick young lady. Every day she says that the world is about to go extinct. She is a lunatic.
Trump said: “Today I urge other nations to follow our example and liberate your citizens from the crushing weight of bureaucracy.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Right on. Government bureaucracies are killing jobs and opportunity all over the world. The nations with the most opportunity, prosperity and happiness are the most capitalistic nations with the least powerful bureaucracies.
Added note: President Trump will be the first US president to personally address the March for Life in Washington, DC on January 24. Great. He is a good man.

Biden Embraces Open Borders
Joe Biden is further digging his own political grave with open-borders proposals. Breitbart News reports:
Joe Biden says his immigration policy will focus on the “family unification” of foreigners’ families, and migrants will only be deported if they commit felonies while in the United States.
He told Vice News on January 20:
My [immigration] policy is family unification … What I’m going to do is make sure we focus on family unification … protect dreamers … [and] provide a pathway [to citizenship] for 11 million people … [the border] cages close … We’re not going to deport anybody who in fact has not — in this country — committed a felony.
In the Vice News interview, Biden did not promise to protect Americans’ from millions of migrants who are likely to cross the border if he stops deportations. The migrants are rationally seeking jobs in Americans’ workplaces, housing in Americans’ communities, and places in the schools used by Americans’ children.
Numerous studies show migrants tend to reduce Americans’ wages and raise Americans’ housing prices.
This is a continuation of a very damaging policy. By coddling illegal aliens Democrats are simply announcing to the world that the American border is open. This will lead to tens of millions of the world’s poor to flood into the US, harming our nation and our economy.
California Goes Further Down the Drain
Andrew Moran at Liberty Nation wrote:
In September, California’s Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law AB5, which requires most companies to reclassify freelancers and contingent workers as full-time employees. Doing this means such individuals would be eligible for a guaranteed $12-$13 state minimum wage, benefits, and protections under California’s immense employment laws. It went into effect on Jan. 1.
… AB5 was lauded by organized labor, but it turns out that laborers are not enthusiastic about it.
The law impacts about two-thirds of the state’s two million independent contractors; It does exempt many white-collar professionals, including architects, attorneys, doctors, and realtors. But childcare specialists, nurses, writers, and janitors are not afforded the same luxury. Truck drivers received a last-minute exemption after weeks of contentious back-and-forth battles, but reportedly they fled the state before the country bellowed Auld Lang Syne. For the truckers who stayed behind, the California Trucking Association claims it is receiving calls from individuals who are leaving the state.
Freelance writers may be the next ones to wave goodbye to California. Moving forward, freelancers are limited to 35 annual submissions per client. As any writer will attest, it can be easy to reach this quota when you are submitting content to media firms, leaving you on a never-ending hunt for more companies to accept your prose on the existential crisis in the age of deconstruction.
Just weeks after AB5 became law, Vox Media announced that hundreds of freelance writers, primarily sports contributors for its SB Nation website, would be given the pink slip. The irony behind this corporate decision is that Vox endorsed the bill and celebrated its passing. Instead, Vox is replacing them with 20 new full- and part-time staff members.
OK, you can see where this is headed in a state that is going rapidly downhill. AB5 was supported by labor unions. In other words, they want new members. So if they get 100,000 new members but 2 million freelancers lose their jobs in the process, Democrats don’t care. This is how they always operate.
Republicans Cave In, Issue ‘Climate’ Plan
Three Republican congressmen have issued a “climate” plan to counter the preposterous Green New Deal, which would destroy the American economy if implemented.
The Green New Deal would eliminate oil, coal, natural gas, cars, airplanes and every other part of our modern economy. In the meantime it would push up gasoline to astronomical prices by making it scarce.
So three Republicans have offered an alternative plan but they should not do this since ‘global warming’ is a hoax and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is a totally natural compound, not something new and dangerous. In fact satellite images have shown that the world is actually getting greener from the additional CO2 in the air since CO2 is the “food” that plants absorb to grow.
Now the Republicans have offered a three-part environmental plan to counter the Green New Deal – first, to be part of a project to plant one trillion trees around the world; these trees would absorb CO2 out of the atmosphere.
This is another feel-good project promoted by the environmentalists. And the ‘greenies’ would manage this monstrosity and it would become a totally corrupt endeavor. But that is the point of environmentalism in the first place – to funnel wealth to the ‘greenies’.
Second, the Republicans want to encourage “clean energy” which means even more subsidies for windmills and solar panels. This is a mistake. Solar and wind power are grossly inefficient and expensive and are degrading the world energy supply. All solar and wind subsidies should be ended immediately.
Fortunately the Republican plan encourages nuclear power and more clean-burning natural gas in our energy mix.
Third, the plan wants less plastic in the environment. But basically environmentalists themselves have caused the plastic problem in the first place.
‘Greenies’ have implemented inefficient and expensive recycling plans for plastic. These programs do not work and they are very costly. They are being abandoned all across the USA. We should be tossing all plastic in the garbage along with newspaper, cardboard, etc. and burning it as fuel in incinerators to produce electricity, which is the most valuable energy resource of all.
This is done all over Europe and in some places in the US. If you don’t know how it works, then look it up. Nikitas3.com has calculated that the US could save the burning of 100 million tons of coal annually if we burned our trash as fuel instead in power plants.
And who opposes this super-efficient idea of trash-to-electricity?
The same ‘greenies’ who are screaming about plastic in the first place.
Rainbow Cake Girl Expelled from Christian School
There was a big story in the Fake News media recently about a young lady who was expelled from a Christian school for posting a picture of herself on the internet with a “rainbow” shirt and birthday cake. The Fake News claimed that she was not gay and was expelled simply for having a gay-looking cake.
The Washington Post ran the headline, “Christian school expels teen after she posed with rainbow birthday cake, mother says.” The New York Post said, “Teen expelled from Christian school after rainbow shirt, cake photo.” Newsweek said, “CHRISTIAN SCHOOL EXPELS GIRL FOR ‘LIFESTYLE VIOLATION’ OF A RAINBOW SHIRT AND BIRTHDAY CAKE.”
The stories all said that the girl’s mother innocently ordered the cake and wanted it to be colorful, and that her daughter was not gay. But as it turns out the daughter had bragged last Autumn on the internet about being gay and even sleeping with her girlfriend. The girl even had posted a photo of herself tossing a Bible into a clothes dryer.
Further the school had warned the girl and her mother in October that gay behavior contravenes the school’s code of conduct, which students sign a document to uphold. Yet she went ahead and posted a photo on the internet of the gay cake and shirt for her December 30 birthday.
So the girl was expelled for being a lesbian. But don’t let facts get in the way of an anti-Christian story in the Fake News media.
