ENDGAME : POTUS Trump's Vindication Nears (March 16, 2019)
10/13/2019 7:18:52 PM PDT · by bitt · 3 replies ^ | March 16, 2019 | Rex
Leftists have long alleged that Donald Trump has conducted crimes with the mafia, as well as with Russian oligarchs. What they can never explain is why Trump has never been indicted. As REX explains, there may be a reason for that. And in 2019, it’s all connected to POTUS Trump’s masterful takedown of The Swamp. Opponents of Donald Trump have an absolute - some might say fanatic - obsession with Trump’s alleged links with organized crime. For example, Trump’s critics have always referred to Trump’s ‘suspicious’ relationship with the Five Families in 1980’s New York. However, from 2015, they have...

Esper confirms Trump ordered larger withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria BY ZACK BUDRYK - 10/13/19 11:59 AM EDT Defense Secretary Mark Esper confirmed Sunday that President Trump has ordered a larger withdrawal of U.S. forces from northeastern Syria than was previously indicated. During an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Esper said the U.S. has withdrawn about 1,000 U.S. troops from northern Syria since an initial smaller withdrawal of troops. Trump made the decision to increase the withdrawal amid reports that Turkey will expand its offensive “further south than originally planned and to the west,” Esper told CBS’s Margaret...

Hillary Clinton defended Meghan Markle in a new interview, saying her biracial background “certainly” played a role in the British tabloids’ harsh treatment of her. “I do want to say that the way she’s been treated is inexplicable,” the former Secretary of State told The Sunday Times of London in an interview. “If the explanation is that she’s biracial, then shame on everybody,” Clinton said — adding she believes race is “certainly part of it.” Clinton, 71, was responding to a question about the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry’s decision to sue three British tabloids. When asked the same...

Breitbart ^ | October 12, 2019 | Jeff Poor
It will be another four and a half months before Republican voters in Alabama select a GOP nominee to face incumbent Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in the Nov. 3, 2020 general election. However, there could be a familiar face among the list of candidates on the ballot. In recent days, there has been rampant speculation that former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions could enter the contest for his old seat. Sessions held the seat currently occupied by Jones from 1997 through 2017. He gave up that seat to serve in the Trump administration until his unceremonious exit in late 2018....

Russia will find ways to help Cuba secure supplies of oil and petroleum products, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview broadcast on Saturday. Havana said on Sept. 11 that it had not secured sufficient shipments of refined fuels such as gasoline and diesel for the rest of the month due to sanctions imposed by the United States in retaliation for its support for Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. "I think we will find other ways to help Cuba get oil and petroleum products," Medvedev told Rossiya 1 TV when asked if Russian ships could escort oil tankers to...

CLARKSBURG — The home-schooled student population in Harrison County has increased by hundreds over the last eight to 10 years, according to officials. Because of all those students leaving the school system to be taught at home leaves, Harrison County has received less in state aid formula funding each year. On Oct. 1, when the county submitted its enrollment total to the state Department of Education, the number of home-schooled children had reached 582, according to Harrison Schools Attendance Director Jim Kirby. Over his 15 years as attendance director, Kirby said he’s seen the number of home-schooled students continue to...

Moscow is not blaming U.S. President Donald Trump for failing to improve U.S.-Russian relations, a pledge he had made during his election campaign, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with Arab broadcasters. “We know that, including during his previous election campaign, he spoke in favor of a normalization (of U.S.-Russia relations), but unfortunately it has not happened yet,” Putin told Al Arabiya, Sky News Arabia and RT Arabic. “But we have no claims because we see what’s going on in U.S. domestic politics,” he said, according to a transcript published on the Kremlin’s website on Sunday. Putin said...

Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party, buoyed by its popular conservative platform and generous social spending, was widely expected to win Sunday’s election, which is regarded as one of the country’s most momentous since the fall of communism 30 years ago. More than 30 million voters were choosing lawmakers in the 460-seat lower house of parliament, the Sejm, and in the 100-seat Senate. Law and Justice is the first party since the fall of communism to break with the austerity of previous governments, whose free-market policies took a moribund communist economy and transformed it into one of Europe's most dynamic.

Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper said Sunday that President Trump ordered a withdrawal of American forces from northern Syria, a decision that will effectively cede control of the area to the Syrian government and Russia, and could allow a resurgence of the Islamic State. Mr. Esper, appearing on both Fox News and CBS News, said that American troops, mostly Special Operations forces, would leave the northeastern part of the country in the face of Turkey’s incursion into the section of Syria controlled by Kurdish forces, a group of fighters trained and backed by the United States government. The bulk of...

The Queen and Prince Charles could make more than Ł100million a year from the huge expansion of offshore windfarms – thanks to a change in the way that the monarchy is funded. The green energy earnings of the Royal Family are being significantly boosted by an auction, which formally began last week, for the biggest offshore windpower development in the world. If they were still being paid by the long-established Civil List, the Royals would not have benefited. ... Prince Charles is a vociferous campaigner for renewable energy sources but is opposed to turbines being erected on land – particularly...

CNN’s LGBT Town Hall collapses into trans madness

In its quest for every gender on the spectrum, the network couldn’t even find a single top to stuff into the audience. At the top of CNN’s Alphabetapalooza Town Hall on Thursday evening, a survivor of the 2016 Pulse nightclub Islamic terrorist attack asked New Jersey senator Cory Booker what he planned to do to stop violence against LGBT people. Gay icon Booker, a man widely lauded in the Port Authority Bus Terminal men’s toilets who sometimes performs drag under the name Izzy Gaye, had a clear-cut answer. As president, he would create an office dedicated to investigating white supremacy...

In recent years, Smith’s only role at Fox News was to come on air and cause half the cable channel’s regular viewers to tune into OANN. The channel attempted to elevate his role a few years ago by making him the “anchor” for all...

Trump’s Foreign Policy Deals Properly with Tyrants

Journal of American Greatness ^ | October 12, 2019 | Roger Kimball
Over at PJ Media, my friend Roger L. Simon makes some sage observations about the proper conduct of foreign policy among great powers in general and, in particular, about the behavior of President Trump with respect to this important arena of human endeavor. Roger’s first point has two parts, a strophe, as it were, and an antistrophe. The strophe involves a patent moral dimension. We should not conceal—from others or from ourselves—the moral caliber of the leaders with whom we deal. Besides the United States, the world’s only other colossus is China. Not only does it preside over the second...

ROME - After more than a year-long legal battle over the burial location of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco’s remains, on Friday the nation’s famed ‘Valley of the Fallen’ was officially closed ahead of the exhumation of the former general’s body. The Oct. 11 closure of the Valley took place a day ahead of Spain’s national day, Día de la Hispanidad, and the feast of Our Lady of the Pillar, Spain’s national patroness, both of which are celebrated on Oct. 12. Built upon Franco’s orders in the mid-20th century, the Valley of the Fallen is now a monument to some 34,000...
