    WND ^ | November 5, 2015 | Cheryl Chumley
    The Workers World Party is taking to New York City for a two-day conference to show how to spread socialism around the nation and world, and to explain why the time is ripe for such expansion. The event, titled “Putting Socialist Revolution on the Table,” kicks off Saturday at the Shabazz Center, and includes panel discussions on Black Lives Matter, with an emphasis on women and LGBT leadership; how to be a revolutionary; and on dispelling myths about China’s socialism. It also includes the discussion topic “fighting imperialism means building internationalism,” according to an advertisement sent out by the...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | August 5, 2017 | Daniel Chaitin
    "Never Trump" may be getting a facelift for 2020. Bill Kristol, editor-at-large of the Weekly Standard, said he has initiated informal talks about creating a "Committee Not to Renominate the President." "We need to take one shot at liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism," Kristol told the New York Times. After the story was published Saturday afternoon, Kristol shared it on Twitter, with the message: "The task in 2020: 'Liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism.'" Kristol's disapproval of Trump dates back to the campaign, when the "Never Trumper" pushed for Evan McMullin's...

    Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson and Charles Krauthammer respond to President Trump's West Virginia rally. KRAUTHAMMER: Here's a guy, his numbers are down in the 30s, he's got reports of a grand jury, he's got the walls closing in on him in Washington. He goes out into the country and says, these are my people, these are real people, forget about the numbers, forget about the chatter in Washington, forget about the stories about Russia... But [Trump] represents a huge constituency of tremendous support and enthusiasm. Admittedly, this is one state where he won his biggest victory of all, but...
  • Bombshell Discovery Reveals Major Discrepancy In 2016 Votes

    DC Statesman ^ | 8/1/17 | Elizabeth True
    President Trump's Advisory Commission on Election Integrity has set out to seek justice. The Government Accountability Institute (GAI) discovered that "thousands of votes in the 2016 election were illegal duplicate votes from people who registered and voted in more than one state." GAI used lists of public voter data from only 21 states to match names birthdays and social security numbers to find 8,471 votes from 2016 were duplicated. You can estimate the number of fraudulent votes based on all 50 states and the GAI conservatively estimated that to be around 45,000. 45,000 duplicate votes "To put this number of...

    The Huntsville Times ^ | July 31, 2017 | John Robb
    Whether you voted red or blue, clearly you can see that Team Trump had a rough launch. Failure (so far) to replace Obamacare, daily Russian probe distractions and West Wing infighting are three most notable examples. But, I believe all three are rooted in one simple and temporary cause: Donald Trump didn't expect to be elected President. Please know my source here is not some anonymous bureaucrat or wishful-thinking Liberal pundit. Mr. Trump said that. Those who attended his final victory rally in December at Ladd Stadium might remember he told us that he rented a relatively small Manhattan ballroom...

    The Week ^ | September 1, 2016 | Damon Linker
    The conventional wisdom has calcified: Donald Trump is going to lose to Hillary Clinton. Sure, there have been brief moments when the outcome seemed in doubt when the FBI director called Clinton's handling of her emails while secretary of state "extremely careless"; when it looked for about a half-hour that Trump received a significant bump from the GOP convention. But for the most part, and especially in the month since the conclusion of the Democratic convention, the race has settled into a stable pattern, with Clinton running between 4 and 8 points ahead of Trump nationally and beating him...

    President Donald Trump said Tuesday he was "disappointed" with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, but declined to say whether he would fire him or if he believed Sessions should resign. "I am disappointed in the attorney general. He should not have recused himself," Trump said during a joint news conference with the Lebanese prime minister, hours after firing off his latest missive targeting Sessions. "If he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me prior to taking office and I would have quite simply picked someone else." Pressed repeatedly about whether he wants Sessions out of his administration, the...

    The media's hypocrisy concerning foreign influence in U.S. elections is staggering. Find me a media commentator who isnt turning him or herself upside down trying to explain why Donald Trump Jr.s meeting with the Russians could potentially lead to the presidents removal from office, and Ill show you someone who either isnt on the air or is just not trying very hard. Nobody seemed to care when the Russians used political influence to buy up U.S. uranium stocks under Obama. Lets see if they care the Chinese may now be trying to buy up significant quantities of U.S. copper using...

    In his forthcoming book Devil's Bargain, Bloomberg Businessweek's Joshua Green writes President Trump didn't have a victory speech prepared on election night, per the Daily Mail. Also on election night, Green writes, Trump became enraged when Chris Christie suggested that Barack Obama call his phone when he reached out to congratulate Trump a move which contributed to their falling out. Christie's office says that's "complete fiction." Other nuggets: How Trump reportedly chewed out then-campaign manager Paul Manafort: After reports that his aides went on TV to reach Trump, Trump reportedly yelled "'Am I like a baby to you? I...

    Donald Trump, Jr. is taking a lot of heat for the bombshell story about his meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer who promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to help his fathers campaign. But another person present at that meeting was who ultimately set in motion the events that led to its public disclosure: Trump Jr.s brother-in-law, White House adviser Jared Kushner. The June 2016 sit-down with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was first brought to government officials attention when it was listed among the foreign contacts on Kushners amended application for a top-level security...

    A former senior director of the National Security Council under President George W. Bush said on Thursday that the liberal media and Obama loyalists inside and outside of the federal government had executed a coordinated attack on President Donald Trump since he was elected. Michael Doran made the remarks at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC, where he is a senior fellow on Middle East security and was a panelist for a discussion at the institute on Russian meddling in the U.S. 2016 presidential election. The conversation quickly shifted to Trump and his campaigns relationship with the Russians andthe ongoing...

    About a year ago, the respected Harvard political theorist, Harvey C. Mansfield, Jr., wrote an op-ed about Donald Trump for the Wall Street Journal titled, Why Donald Trump Is No Gentleman. Mansfield made the case that the appellation gentleman is one used so rarely these days that we forget, even, to note its opposite. He also wrote: The outstanding person in this election is Donald Trump, in that he attracts the most attention, but the outstanding fact is the voters behind him who excuse Mr. Trump for his ungentlemanly behavior. Incapable as he is of appreciating the gentleman, Mr. Trump...

    When Salena Zito took a buyout from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review over the summer, she may not have expected that the end of her 11 years at the paper would presage a new, more high profile chapter in her career -- as a reporter who saw Trump's victory coming from miles away. For several months, for outlets ranging from the liberal Atlantic to the red-blooded New York Post, Zito churned out pieces about the supposedly elusive Trump voters that the polls seem to have missed. She wrote that these people take Trump seriously, not literally. She wrote a piece about the...

    The AntiFa Resist 45 Movement loves to point out that Hillary won the popular vote. However, if you get down into the weeds a bit the picture that materializes isnt quite what we have been led to believe by the Democrat Party, their bully-boy street thugs, or their media megaphone. As reported in Investors Business Daily if you take California out of the equation it is a completely different picture. If you look at every other measure, Trump was the clear and decisive winner in this election. Number of states won: Trump: 30 Clinton: 20 Trump: +10 Number of electoral...
  • [Secret Memos] Did the FBI retaliate against Michael Flynn by launching Russia probe?

    The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureaus leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews. Flynns intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritzs case and an offer to testify on her behalf. His offer put him as a hostile...

    Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz accused ex-DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson of lying under oath when he said the DNC refused the help of the DHS in their hacking scandal. Johnson said during testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday that the Democratic National Committee refused DHS help with Russian hacking and opted not to turn over their hacked servers. However, in a Thursday interview on CNN, Wasserman Schultz accused him of being misinformed, and said the DNC was never even made aware that their network had been compromised.

    arly last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried eyes only instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladimir Putins direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race.

    "This troubles me deeply as a Republican, but it troubles me even more as an American," said Paulson, a former Goldman Sachs chief executive who spearheaded the 2008 Wall Street bank bailout as treasury secretary. "Enough is enough," he wrote. "It's time to put country before party and say it together: Never Trump." Instead, he offered up Democrats' presumptive presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, as the country's best alternative to Trump, encouraging his GOP colleagues to consider her when casting their ballot.
