  • Joe Biden’s brother and son have a long history of profiting off his name

    While Democrats want the press and voters to concentrate on President Trump’s phone call with Ukraine, “the problem for Democrats is that a review of Hunter Biden’s career shows clearly that he, along with Joe Biden’s brother James, has been trading on their family name for decades, cashing in on the implication — and sometimes the explicit argument — that giving money to a member of Joe Biden’s family wins the favor of Joe Biden,” argues Ryan Grim at The Intercept. Trump’s behavior may be shameless, Grim says, but that doesn’t mean Biden’s history isn’t an issue, he writes in...

    Illinois local governments generated more than $1 billion in red-light camera revenue from 2008 to 2018.. Each red-light camera ticket in Illinois costs drivers up to $100.. Chicago has long been a poster child for red-light camera abuse. The city is home to the nation’s highest count of red-light cameras, a former high-ranking transportation official serving jail time for taking bribes from a red-light camera company, and a pricey settlement for drivers who a judge ruled did not receive proper notifications in the ticketing process. ... smaller local governments outside the city have installed almost as many red-light cameras as...
  • Hunter Biden admits that Trump is 100% correct about Biden's corruption

    Hunter Biden admits that he had no knowledge of and nothing to bring to the boards he served on other than his last name and relationship to the Vice President of the United States who at the time was serving as President Obama's point man on Ukraine and China. He also admits that other board members also had no more knowledge than he had. This means all of these malleable board members were installed for corrupt political purposes only. Ethics, expertise and fiduciary duty be damned. Vice President Biden flew his son around the world on Air Force Two selling...

    Hunter Biden, son of former VP Joe Biden, gave an interview to ABC News Tuesday evening, his first since all of the ‘controversy’ surrounding his lucrative association with a corrupt Ukrainian firm his daddy helped him land. Anyone with a pair of brain cells to rub together knows these two are corrupt.

    The New York Times is clamping down on its reporters appearing on opinionated cable news shows to avoid the appearance of “bias.” The newspaper recently blocked its finance editor David Enrich from appearing on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show to talk about his reporting on President Trump’s finances and Deutsche Bank, according to according to Vanity Fair. The paper has also placed Lawrence O'Donnell’s show on MSNBC and Don Lemon’s show on CNN on its blacklist. “In deciding whether to make a radio, television or Internet appearance, a staff member should consider its probable tone and content to make sure they are...

    Efforts to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom are beating expectations, having reached 150,000 signatures three weeks after launching. According to the petition’s originator, Congressional candidate Erin Cruz, the petition is expected to hit 600,000 signatures by the end of this month. The petition needs to have 1.5 million signatures by February 13, 2020. Cruz is shooting for 2.4 million to make sure enough get certified. If the recall petition reaches its signature requirements, California will hold a new gubernatorial election. Newsom will be forced to step down if he loses. The last time a recall petition was successful in California...

    You might want to sit down for this one. If you thought the IRS was just a necessary yet uncomfortable part of American life, here’s some more evidence that it’s simply an arm of the United States government that deserves to be excised. The IRS just admitted that it audits the working poor at about the same rate as the wealthiest 1 percent. Here’s why, according to ProPublica: "…the IRS said, auditing poor taxpayers is a lot easier: The agency uses relatively low-level employees to audit returns for low-income taxpayers who claim the earned income tax credit. The audits —...

    The poll released last week by Fox News that claimed most Americans favor the impeachment of President Trump underrepresented Republicans and Independents, The Post has found. The poll said 51% of voters were in favor of impeachment and removal from office, while 40% did not want him impeached. Princeton New Jersey pollster Braun Research, which conducted the survey, noted 48% of its respondents were Democrats. But the actual breakdown of party affiliation is 31% Democrat, 29% Republican, and 38% Independent, according to Gallup. A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% oppose it,...

    On September 10, 2019, San Diego MassResistance brought together outraged parents, citizens, pastors, and others to confront the Chula Vista City Council. They were irate over the Council’s refusal to cancel the “Drag Queen Story Hour” which took place in the city’s public library earlier that day – and the possibility of more such events happening. "I never thought I would use the word politician as a pejorative. I am tonight. Because it was clear that this Drag Queen Story Hour is an attempt to use to use children as pawns in an adult political sexual agenda. Children who are...

    The front-running Democratic Presidential candidate who is pro-abortion up until the first breath sang a rendition of "Jesus Loves the Little Children" at CNN's LGBTQ Town Hall in Los Angeles on Thursday. Elizabeth Warren sang the song in defense of gay marriage. She did not apply the song or its lyrics to unborn children who are slaughtered relentlessly by Democrat-protected abortuaries and whose blood money fuels her campaign. The church I grew up in, the first song I remember singing, "Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus Loves the little children of the world."...

    A study conducted by OpenTheBooks.com showed that the practice of politicians trading favors for cash is common. The case study involved eight members of Congress: Republicans Tom Cole, Kristi Noem, Erik Paulsen, and Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Democrats John B. Larsen, Jim Cooper, Debbie Dingell, and Brenda Lawrence. The study found a repeated pattern in which members of Congress own investment stock in, are employed by, and receive retirement pensions from federal contractors to whom billions of taxpayer dollars flow. Members sponsor or oppose legislation that affects these contractors. Then, the contractor's lobbyists advocate for or against the legislation to...

Henry Kyle Frese, 30, was arrested by the FBI when he arrived at work at a DIA facility in Virginia. He was charged with willfully disclosing national defense information. Frese, who has a top secret government security clearance, is alleged to have accessed at least five classified intelligence reports and provided top secret information about another country's weapons systems to the reporter with whom he was having a relationship.

    On Tuesday we reported that a Ukrainian member of parliament revealed additional corruption involving former VP Joe Biden, who — according to the lawmaker — received upwards of $900,000 in laundered ‘lobbying’ money at a time when he was working on behalf of the Obama regime to undermine that country’s legitimate corruption investigations. On Tuesday evening, Rudy Giuliani, legal counsel for President Trump, went on “Hannity” to explain in further detail the corruption allegation and add some additional details.

    Daniel Patrick Moynihan was an American public servant with characteristics all too rare today -- integrity, intelligence, wisdom. Moynihan was a Democrat who would find a hard time being at home in today's Democratic Party. He was a policy adviser in Democratic -- Kennedy -- and Republican -- Nixon -- administrations and went on to serve four terms as a Democratic senator of New York. Here are two of Moynihan's many famous observations that are particularly relevant in today's chaotic times: "The central conservative truth is that it is culture, not politics, that determines the success of a society.

    KYIV. Oct 9 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden received $900,000 for lobbying activities from Burisma Group, Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada member Andriy Derkach said citing investigation materials. Derkach publicized documents which, as he said, "describe the mechanism of getting money by Biden Sr." at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine's press center in Kyiv on Wednesday. "This was the transfer of Burisma Group's funds for lobbying activities, as investigators believe, personally to Joe Biden through a lobbying company. Funds in the amount of $900,000 were transferred to the U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which according to open sources, in...

    Russian social media trolls working to boost the candidacy of now-President Donald Trump celebrated the real estate mogul’s win on election night 2016 with champagne, according to a message disclosed in a new report from the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee. According to the committee’s report, released Tuesday, an employee of Russia’s Internet Research Agency sent a message indicating that they “uncorked a tiny bottle of champagne” when they found out that Trump had won. “We uttered almost in unison: ‘We made America great.’” The exchange was highlighted by Bloomberg.
