    Bogus Times ^ | Feb. 27, 2017 | Kim Parkhurst
    On November 8, 2016, the man I had been rooting for, and arguing for, and educating anyone who would listen to me for, was elected the 45th president of the United States. It might as well have been a football game I was watching as I cheered and yelled, rooting for my guy as the states were called. When Trump took Florida, I knew it was over. My guy was winning. Against all the odds and all the naysayers and all the protesting degenerates, and the Hollywood elites’ multi-million dollar fundraisers for Clinton, my man Trump was taking this thing...

    Among the allegations are claims that Howard Gutman, the US ambassador to Belgium, solicited sex from prostitutes and children in a public park. The claims of a cover-up were rejected by senior State Department officials, however they raise the prospect of further tainting the record of Hillary Clinton at the State Department, which is already under scrutiny for her handling of the Benghazi consulate attacks in September last year. A memo from the Department's inspector general, which has been seen by The Daily Telegraph, said an investigator found evidence Mr Gutman "routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to...

    Is it illegal to solicit non-citizens to register and vote in American elections? I suppose that it depends on the laws of each state, but really shouldn’t the Nebraska AG start looking into a campaign launched by Nebraska’s Democrats? Chris Pandolfo reports for Conservative Review: The Nebraska Democratic Party is welcoming refugees with open arms, welcome baskets … and voter registration forms. A donation drive organized by the NDP collected some 50 gift baskets for refugees. Each contained items like diapers and kitchen utensils, a welcome letter from the Nebraska Democratic Party signed by its chairwoman Jane Kleeb, and a...

    Since her short-lived political career, Louise Mensch has developed a reputation among Clinton partisans as a constant purveyor of Russian election interference allegations and conspiracy theories. Like several Clinton partisans, her Twitter feed is completely focused on the anti-Russia narrative.On November 2016, the pro-Brexit former Conservative member of Parliament managed to transmogrify a tweet about the passing of Leonard Cohen—who is Canadian—into a pro-America, anti-Russia attack. In January 2017, she claimed without any evidence that a terrorist attack at a nightclub in Istanbul was a false-flag Russian operation. On March 20, Mensch retweeted a tweet claiming, “We are at war with Russia.” Mensch has previously called for all out war on Russia, with “precision bombing raids. Bank...

    After a fierce debate between Democrats and Republicans, a bill that would force presidential candidates -- including President Donald Trump -- to release their tax returns to receive a place on New Jersey's ballot gained final legislative approval Thursday. Now it's up to Gov. Chris Christie, a longtime Trump ally and fellow Republican, to decide whether to sign the measure -- which Democrats said they introduced because Trump has repeatedly refused to make his tax returns public. Christie is widely expected to veto it. The Democratic-controlled state Assembly voted mostly along party lines, 48-26, on Thursday to pass the bill,...

    “The New York office of Sberbank CIB indeed hired Podesta Group. Engagement of external consultants is part of standard business practices for us,” Sberbank told TASS on Thursday. The Podesta Group charged Sberbank 20,000 dollars per month, plus expenses, from March through Sept. 2016 in their bid to end U.S. sanctions. The efforts were allegedly just part of a larger under-the-radar effort to remove sanctions on both Sberbank and Russia’s second-largest bank, VTB Capital.

    Polls have been spectacularly wrong in recent years; Trump, Brexit, the UK 2015 General Election, all suggested that the Status Quo would prevail. And of course, they were wrong. This is in part due to how the polls are conducted, and the way in which they are often used as propaganda tools as opposed to informative data sets, but they are still a valuable tool if you know how to read the raw information. The Dutch election results announced today, show how wrong the pollsters can be yet again. It was in fact, only the very last exit poll that...

    The theory that Russia won the November election for Donald Trump through some vague meddling, so dominates cable news right now that it is worth summing up exactly what we know and what we do not know about that story. As of today, there is no evidence that the Russian government tampered with voting machines or hacked any votes in November. There's no evidence that the Russians collaborated with Donald Trump or his campaign to win the election. There is no evidence that Russian propaganda swung a single vote away from Hillary Clinton.

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A new state report says scores of 17-year-olds voted illegally in nearly 30 Wisconsin counties during last spring's presidential primary. The Wisconsin Elections Commission report examined referrals municipal clerks made to prosecutors following the 2016 spring primary and general elections. The referrals included at least 60 cases of 17-year-olds voting in the April primary in 29 counties. The report doesn't track whether charges were filed. The report notes messages were spreading on social media during the primary season that 17-year-olds were eligible to vote if they turned 18 by the November election. That's not the case...

And he asserted the FBI had also played a part. "I also think the FBI clearly sided with Donald Trump and did a lot of damaging leaks on purpose to hurt Hillary Clinton," he added,...

He did this without alerting either the city’s board of aldermen or the citizens themselves. Only when the deal was sealed did he announce that Rutland would be taking...

    Epoch Times ^ | February 23, 2017 | Jack Phillips
    If polls and legacy media outlets are to be believed, President Donald Trump’s approval rating has cratered—as compared with previous presidents in their first respective weeks in office. But there’s one poll—one frequently cited by Trump and his administration’s officials, including press secretary Sean Spicer—that stands out: Rasmussen Reports. In the past week, daily Rasmussen polls showed Trump’s approval rating above 50 percent—even hitting a 55 percent approval rating, with a 45 percent disapproval rating. One might argue that the conservative-leaning Rasmussen is an outlier among a sea of polls that paint Trump in a negative light.

    In the shifting saga of how members of the Trump campaign/administration ended up having their phone conversations tapped under the Obama administration, the American people have been fed a series of shifting excuses on how the Obama administration would never violate the laws concerning surveillance of US Persons. We were told the President cannot order such surveillance (which we know is a false statement, see here and here). Then we were given the impression by the Fake News Media these “intercepts” were under a FISA court warrant. But later we learned the FISA court rejected the application by Team Obama...

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has launched a formal inquiry into the Texas, case, in which a terror suspect’s pending arrest was allegedly spiked just over a week before the election. Trump had run on a tough-on-terror platform and had been critical of President Obama’s refugee policy. “When [Joint Terrorism Task Force] and the U.S. Attorney’s office...

You may have missed it amid President Trump’s startling Saturday tweet storm, the recriminations over president-on-candidate spying, and the Jeff Sessions recusal — a whirlwind weekend. But while you weren’t looking, an elaborate narrative died. For months, the media-Democrat complex has peddled a storyline that the Putin regime in Russia hacked the U.S. presidential election. There is, of course, no evidence that the election was hacked in the sense that the actual voting process was compromised.

    Voter Fraud: Remember all those media reports calling President Trump a liar for claiming that noncitizens voted in the November elections? Turns out, he was more correct than the press. Trump is certainly guilty of wild exaggeration with his claim that he would have won the popular vote if millions of noncitizens hadn't illegally cast ballots. But the press reaction to Trump's statements was even more off base. Time magazine, for example, declared: "We already know that ineligible noncitizens do not vote in American elections — including the 2016 election." It and other news outlets pointed to a paper by...

    The $64,000 question for Democrats seeking to fight back against Donald Trump and a Republican Congress between now and the 2020 elections is whether their recent problems in turning out their voters, especially in nonpresidential contests, can be changed by the energy of a burgeoning anti-Trump resistance. The first real answer to that question may have occurred this weekend in a special state-senate election in the “First State,” Delaware. And though it would be unwise to assume it to set a reliable pattern, in this one case Democrats passed the test. The contest was over a seat in a state-senate...

    Submitted by James George Jatras via The Strategic Culture Foundation After barely two weeks in office Donald Trump has stunned the world with his «shock and awe» campaign to keep promises made when he was a candidate. The mere fact of a politician doing what he said he would do seems to have unsettled the nerves of his opponents. What is called «Trump Derangement Syndrome» is already reaching critical proportions. Withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, ordering a start on his Mexican border wall, ordering an investigation into voter fraud (if conducted properly, almost certain to uncover widespread unlawful voting by...

    Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J.

    It is hardly surprising to read the statements from the Turkish Presidential Palace regarding a different approach to the Kurdish issue after CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s visit to Ankara. İlnur Çevik, a former journalist and currently advisor to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said Turkey may start looking at the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) from a different perspective. He even cited the example of the Iraqi Kurdistan Region (KRG) and Massoud Barzani’s relations with Ankara. “Why shouldn’t the PYD be like Barzani?” Çevik told the New York Times. Çevik knows the issue very well. For a long time he...

    Promising “an inside account of election night at Clinton headquarters, where the sounds of ‘heated shouting’ and ‘smashing of glass’ emanated from the Clinton’s private rooms as their empire fell down around them,” a new book, Game of Thorns by New York Times bestselling author and presidential historian Doug Wead, is due out from Hachette Book Group on February 28. . . . Wead claims the Bush family, feeling “growing concern” over Trump, actually colluded with the Clintons, presumably to derail the Trump campaign. He also hails Reince Priebus for urging Trump not to drop out after the Access Hollywood...

    National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is in the hot seat. But the real target is President Trump and his foreign policy. Donald Trump was elected as a change agent by Americans unhappy with the trajectory of the country and with the cozy concord that exists between political adversaries in a Washington where the politicians find more in common with each other than with the American people. Donald Trump ran on a foreign policy platform that explicitly repudiated the disastrous bipartisan consensus of moral imperialism and international “busybodyism” that has prevailed for the last quarter century and that has cost the...

    "Hillary Clinton should absolutely not run for president in 2020. And Democrats should stop her if she tries. There's a purposely provocative piece in Politico magazine this week that aims to make the case that Hillary Clinton is going to run for president for a third time in 2020. Citing the scaling back of the Clinton Global Initiative and her plans to write a seventh book as evidence, Matt Latimer concludes: “Yes, barring some calamity, Clinton is running. And this brave columnist will go one step further. Not only will Clinton run again, she has an excellent shot at getting...

    Donald Trump ran for president on a promise to crack down on illegal immigration. But most of the people who are in the U.S. illegally live in places that voted for his opponent, Hillary Clinton. More than 2 million of the nation’s roughly 11 million undocumented immigrants live in just two metropolitan areas, New York and Los Angeles, according to a new analysis of 2014 Census Bureau data from the Pew Research Center.1 Voters in both cities supported Clinton by overwhelming margins. Most of the remaining 9 million undocumented immigrants are concentrated in large urban areas that likewise voted for...
