    His supporters claim he is as a genius who is playing public policy like 4-D chess. His detractors claim he is a bumbling fool who may also be highly corrupt. To me, his intellect, strategic ability and moral character are still an enigma. However, one thing is clear: his words and actions – whether incidental or deliberate – are shining a bright light on the Deep State. Citizens of the US have become increasingly suspicious of their government over the past several years. The internet has decentralized the flow of information in such a way that it has become much...
  • I Refuse to Lose My Mind Over the Omnibus Fiasco, and So Should You

    Remember the Kobayashi Maru scene in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan? Sometimes, you end up with no good options. Donald Trump just had that happen to him with the omnibus abomination, though don’t be fooled by the passive voice – he deserves some blame for letting it come to this. The absolutely essential military spending was wrapped in a fat suit of glistening, rancid pork, and the congressional rats had already abandoned ship and fled out of town when it was dumped on his desk. So he had a stark choice. Trump could sign it, and enrage his...
  • Pollak: Conservative Hysteria over Omnibus Is Wrong and Self-Defeating

    The fact that the 2,232-page bill was jammed down legislators’ throats with literally no time to read it shows how little has changed in Washington even after the Tea Party. But the omnibus is not a disaster. In fact, Republicans scored many important wins. One is the fact that the bill provides massive new spending for defense — “the largest year-to-year increase in base funding for the Department of Defense in 15 years,” according to the bill’s authors. That funding was badly needed — and will not easily be reversed. summarizes the highlights: The Navy gets 14 new ships,...

    There are rumblings Attorney General Sessions will take a lateral move We received word on this at Gateway Pundit earlier today. “ As hot Beltway rumors go, this one is extra spicy, but doesn’t appear to have very much meat on the bone. It started with an anonymously sourced story from Politico which claimed “department staffers” were suggesting that Jeff Sessions might be moved over from the Attorney General slot to replace departing General John Kelly at Homeland Security. Given all the scrutiny Sessions has been under, paired with conservative pushback against the idea of his being fired, it’s easy...
  • Oof: Dave Rubin Makes Claim That Jesus "Was Around A Lot of Muslims"

    Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report may want to pick up a history book before trying to make claims about who Jesus Christ hung around with or would have approved of. In a rather hilarious clip, Rubin, speaking with comedian Trae Crowder, made the curious claim that Jesus hung around with a lot of Muslims, because he was in the Middle East .@RubinReport on Jesus: "He was around a lot of Muslims. It was the Middle East."— Sam Sholli (@Sam_Sholli) February 18, 2017 Islam, of course, wasn't founded until the early seventh century. It would have been quite hard...

    Dan Rather warned Americans about the Trump administration in a Facebook post on Sunday, saying these are not "normal times." The former CBS Evening news anchor targeted President Trump, adviser Kellyanne Conway and press secretary Sean Spicer for comments in the last 24 hours. "When you have a spokesperson for the president of the United States wrap up a lie in the Orwellian phrase 'alternative facts' ..." Rather wrote. "When you have a press secretary in his first appearance before the White House reporters threaten, bully, lie, and then walk out of the briefing room without the cajones to...
