    Between 2006 and 2007, at least twelve Democratic Congressmen agreed to meet with Iranian officials in the Ayatollah’s regime at the behest of National Iranian American Council (NIAC) President Trita Parsi, according to a report by Hassan Dai of the Iranian American Forum. Parsi allegedly solicited the help of current Iranian Defense Minister Javad Zarif, who was Iran’s Ambassador to the UN at the time. Zarif is now one of the lead negotiators for Iran’s nuclear program on behalf of the Islamic republic.

    Hillary Clinton is not above cheating, lying or stealing to get what she wants. So it shouldn’t be any surprise that she is being accused of cheating during Monday’s 1st Presidential debate. Clinton was accused of cheating by sending hand signals to the moderator Lester Holt. During the debate when Clinton wanted to signal Holt when she wanted the floor, she rubbed her face in a manner similar to a baseball manager. According to True Pundit she has not done this in any other debates during her career supporting the accusation that these were signals. Watch this incredible video before...

    Hillary's party of parasites has a lot to worry about. This is a war Democrats really fear losing. Next to the near-monolithic support of black voters, Democrats have been relying on the muscle and money of organized labor to pull out election victories for decades. But something different is happening this year. The Washington Examiner reports that the rise of Donald Trump as the Republican nominee for president has spurred a sharp round of internal politicking within the AFL-CIO to herd its members into line to pull the lever for Democrat Hillary Clinton come November. In June, the organization conducted...

But there’s no denying the emails he has picked up from inside the Democrat Party are real, and he’s willing to expose Hillary Clinton. Now, he’s announcing that Hillary Clinton and her State Department were actively arming Islamic jihadists, which includes the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria. Clinton has repeatedly denied these claims, including during multiple statements while under oath in front of the United States Senate.

    Corporate interests and influences have gained a great deal of ground in the Democratic Party under Hillary Clinton’s candidacy. For example, Clinton’s 2008 campaign co-chair, former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz rescinded a DNC ban enacted by Barack Obama in 2008 on donations from lobbyists and SuperPACS.

The bill, written behind closed doors by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, was brought to the floor late Thursday afternoon, and for the majority of Senate Republicans, represented their first opportunity to see the text. According to McConnell, senators will have four days (two of them on a weekend) to review the bill before having to cast their votes next week.

In the analogy, the son of the presidential candidate took on the argument that only a few terrorists would be able to sneak into the country by hiding among the throng of refugees from Syria. Trump asked "suppose I offered you the opportunity to grab a handful of Skittles from a bowl in which just a few were poisoned, would you take them?" The astoundingly dense Rep.

They want to feel safe. They want to be safe. We can help provide that safety by closing the terror loophole. But Democrats can’t do it alone. We need Republicans’ help,” Reid said.

Outside of a closed policy luncheon, Sen.

    It’s the countdown to the 2016 presidential election and emotions are running high. Since Barack Obama was elected president in 2008, the Democrats have come to believe that their party will govern in perpetuity. To achieve this, the media manipulates the “news” in order to obfuscate Hillary Clinton’s mistakes on Benghazi, her mishandling of top-secret classified government documents, and her questionable ties with donors associated with the Clinton Foundation while serving as Secretary of State. Hillary’s behavior draws associations with the “pay for play” practices that caused former Illinois Governor, Rod Blagojevich, to end up in jail. Nevertheless, she remains...

    On Tuesday, the Census Bureau released its annual poverty report declaring that 43.1 million Americans lived in poverty in 2015. We should be concerned about any American living in real material hardship, but much of what the Census reports about poverty is misleading. Here are 15 facts about poverty in America that may surprise you. (All statistics are taken from U.S. government surveys.) Poor households routinely report spending $2.40 for every $1 of income the Census says they have. The average poor American lives in a house or apartment that is in good repair and has more living space than...

    Its something most Americans don't think of... They don't realize that the government that rules their state and municipality is danger to them. Many don't realize the need to fear government. In fact many Americans today, thanks in part to brainwashing by public schools, revisionist history,  pop culture and other things welcome bigger and more powerful government. The government is worshiped by liberals and many mainstream Americans have been conned into worshiping this false idol, whether or not they know it. For many hapless victims, they find out too late to do anything to stop the government from robbing...

    One of the biggest bombshells in the leaked Colin Powell emails is the news that Democratic senator Sheldon Whitehouse informed a Democratic donor that Hillary’s health is so bad that she “could barely climb the podium steps” during an event they both attended. "Sheldon Whitehouse, who is a huge Clinton supporter, said they were both giving speeches at the same event a few months back and she could barely climb the podium steps," Democratic financier Jeffery Leeds said in an email discussion with George W. Bush's former secretary of state. The emails were dated March 14, 2015, and first reported...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democrats are sounding increasingly concerned about their chances of retaking control of the Senate, as Republicans demonstrate a commanding fundraising advantage and Hillary Clinton's lead narrows in key battleground races. Although most Democrats still express confidence that they will win back the Senate majority in November, they now appear to have fewer paths to victory as wins in Ohio and even Florida look increasingly remote. [snip] A key factor is the Republican money edge, which is particularly pronounced this year because some major donors, most notably the billionaire Koch Brothers, have decided to stay out of the...

    The head of the Democratic National Committee said on Tuesday the organization had been hacked by Russian state-sponsored agents who were trying to influence the U.S. presidential election, after a similar leak in July roiled the party. A link to the documents was posted on WikiLeaks' Twitter account and attributed to alleged hacker Guccifer 2.0. The release came during a presentation on Tuesday from a person speaking on behalf of Guccifer 2.0 at a London cyber security conference, Politico reported. Reuters could not immediately access the documents. "There's one person who stands to benefit from these criminal acts, and that's...

    CHARLEROI, Pa.—Angela LeJohn is 49, has worked at a local energy company for nine years, and loves it. A registered Democrat, she never once voted for a Republican and never expected to entertain such a thought—not even in a local election—until this year. “The short of it is that I am looking at this election through self-preservation,” she explained. “I love my job, I love that I only live three miles from work, I love that who I work for contributes to a stable life, and I love that my community is holding on because of the trickle effect Lee...

    Democrats have been determined to shove Crooked Hillary down the throats of the electorate and now she’ll be shoving her hefty self down theirs While Democrats are calling today’s meeting to maybe replace Hillary Clinton for the presidency, we deplorables call it a political strategy to scupper Election 2016 for populist Donald J. Trump. Trump, after all, can’t win if he can’t run. Democrats look hungrily at granting their Dear Leader Barack Obama a 3rd term in office to finish off America in his dirty, spite-inspired ‘Destruction of America’ mission.

    Occidental College is investigating the vandalism of a 9/11 memorial on campus after the US flags used in the display were tossed in the trash. The Occidental College Republican Club said it had planted 2,997 tiny flags -- one for each of the victims of the September 11, 2001, attacks -- on the quad of the Los Angeles liberal arts college of 2,100 students. "Vandals crushed, snapped and threw in the garbage every single flag," the college GOP club said on Facebook. "Not one was left in the ground." The temporary display consisted of a sign saying, "9/11 Never Forget...
