    (Full title):Meet the man siphoning money from Donald Trump- A 25-year-old with no Trump ties raises $1 million by dangling 'dinner' with the GOP nominee.

    During the latter years of the last century, Congress enacted reforms to the federal immigration law. The part of this enactment with which, in light of the above, everyone should be concerned is now in the United States Code at Section 1324a(h)(2), where it mandates the federal pre-emption of: ... any State or local law imposing civil or criminal sanctions (other than through licensing and similar laws) upon those who employ, or recruit or refer for a fee for employment, unauthorized aliens. This provision flagrantly robs the American workers and businesses injured by the use of illegal alien workers of...

    Confidentiality”? Yes, that’s the State Department’s story on why the Obama administration is stonewalling the American people regarding the president’s illegal and increasingly suspicious Iransom payoff. The administration refuses to divulge any further information about the $1.7 billion the president acknowledges paying the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. Grilled on Wednesday about how Obama managed to pay the final $1.3 billion installment — particularly given the president’s claim that it is not possible to send Tehran a check or wire-transfer — State Department spokesman Mark Toner decreed that the administration would continue “withholding this information” in order “to protect...

    Hawaii's former health director who died after a plane she was traveling in crashed into the ocean was wearing an infant life vest and the pilot didn't give a safety briefing before takeoff, according to details in a National Transportation Safety Board report.

The pilot and seven other passengers on the 2013 Makani Kai Air flight survived. Pilot Clyde Kawasaki reported to the NTSB that he heard a loud bang, followed by an...

Yeah, right. In her typical highly exaggerated, and in no-way-authentic style, Hillary laughed wildly...

    Four people -- one man and three women -- are now facing charges in connection with a child pornography investigation. The investigation began in January but it was expanded in April when police arrested a 45-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman who allegedly made, produced and distributed thousands of child sexual abuse images and videos. An investigation into the couple began in January after receiving a tip about a cache of child pornography that had been uploaded onto the internet.

    Long before Mike Pence teamed up with a con-artist, he was an artist himself. The Republican vice presidential nominee spent his time in law school at Indiana University sketching out mildly funny cartoons to pass the time. The illustrations, unearthed by Esquire magazine, were titled "Law School Daze" and were reportedly published in the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law student newspaper during Pence's time at the school in the mid-1980s. The strip focuses on Pence's alter-ego "Daze" and his friends and explores the boredom of criminal law classes, not getting nominated for student awards, and abusive professors....

I urge everyone to watch it. The parallels to the manipulation taking place today are stunning. It is obvious that today's agitators are taking cues from the same playbook. I especially appreciated the section in which black steelworkers in Pittsburgh were manipulated into a wildcat strike and riots so that the Party could raise money for its own purposes.

They might add some details. But they usually answer the question. Clinton never answered the question about her health. All she did was mock the Trump supporters who keep bringing it up. Clinton intentionally avoided the question while skillfully making you think she addressed it. This is similar to Donald...

    The upcoming release of the new batch of previously undisclosed 15,000 Hillary emails by the State Dept. doesn't smell right. I have a feeling Team Hillary ordered the State Dept. to cough them up because they've lost sleep at night worrying that Assange over at Wikileaks has them and will release them FIRST if they don't act now. If Assange releases them first, especially given the fact they have been kept hidden from everyone including the FBI, the impact to her campaign would be greater than if she released them voluntarily. I believe this was a preemptive move by Team...

While the administration is pledging to reduce fuel use and cut greenhouse gas emissions, its stringent energy mandate will do nothing to affect climate change. What it will do, however, is take decisions away from the American individuals and businesses and consolidate more power in Washington. The regulation requires a wide variety of vehicles—from school buses and passenger vans, to garbage and delivery trucks and long-haul tractor-trailers—to improve fuel efficiency.

Earlier police had further questions for the swimmer - a 12-time Olympic medallist - about the supposed robbery and found 'little evidence' that it had taken place. Lochte claims that he and three of his team-mates were robbed at gunpoint in a taxi, but police say the swimmers were unable to provide key details in police interviews. Lochte’s attorney, Jeff Ostrow, said there was no question the robbery happened and that the swimmer had 24-hour security hired after...

    Many are puzzled by the alliances between leftists, especially between the extreme ones that have become so prominent in today’s Democratic Party and the adherents of Islam who are bent on turning the world into one large caliphate. Given the subjugation of women in that part of the Islamic world which adheres to Shariah law, its putting to death of homosexuals and other practices (compared to the trendy approval of homosexual “marriage” in the leftist world in America) and other practices of Islam, such as enslavement, to many this alliance makes little sense. Those puzzled by this alliance need to...
  • Debbie Wasserman Schultz And The DNC Favored Hillary Over Bernie. Where’s The Outrage?

    After the DNC WikiLeaks emails, The Nation’s Joshua Holland acknowledged the DNC “came to loathe Sanders’s campaign,” however “there’s no evidence that they rigged the primaries.” Nothing exemplifies the amnesia of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s various claims of impartiality, or the relevance of such neutrality to the Democratic process, better than Holland’s sentiment. The facts show that the Democratic Primary was rigged against Bernie Sanders from the start, despite numerous promises from the DNC to remain impartial. Schultz stated months before her resignation that “I have been from the beginning, neutral in the Presidential Democratic primary.” From the debates until her resignation, everyone (including Debbie Wasserman Schultz) knew that Democratic voters expected a level­playing field and a fair primary. Hundreds of millions of dollars were donated from voters who believed the system wasn’t biased against Bernie. However, where’s the outrage from progressives, and especially progressive media that Bernie Sanders was cheated?
  • Another Sign That Trump should Be Ahead,Democrat Commentators Keep Gloating Over Hillary's Numbers.

    We have all been seeing this over the last two or three weeks.You can't go to ABC/NBC/CNN/MSNBC and the rest without hearing how Trump is collapsing/bad week/disastrous week,etc.At the same time these commentators are gloating that Hillary has a commanding lead in many polls, yet we all know that they are all just putting on a show. We get the polls here daily, and as far as we know, it's a 50/50 race with about 16 to 20 percent undecided. The far left must be panicking to the extent where they have no choice but to just keep trying to...

    Oklahoma drivers were stunned this weekend when they saw a group of nooses displayed along the side of a highway.... ..."If you think of a noose in America, it doesn't represent anything but what used to happen to African Americans," Terrance Reed told the station. "He got the right to do what he wants to do, he’s got a right to feel what he wanna feel, but I got a right to be angry about it too, and I’m angry."

  • 1969 Film of Bernie Sanders spreading North Vietnamese propaganda

    In this 1969 documentary of a seditious meeting of communists with the notorious communist and terrorist Walter T Howard CCCP of New York City, we see Bernie Sanders attending a meeting and a filming of a North Vietnamese communist film that portrays the communist viet cong as freedom fighters and the Americans as torturers and barbarians. This and other films were shown by student radicals and marxists as Americans were being killed by the North Vietnamese army and the VietCong and as Vietnamese civilians were being murdered, tortured, buried alive and extorted by the communists and their gangster protection schemes...
