  • Senator Chelsea Manning? Democrats Should Be Proud

    Democrats have outdone themselves this time. Chelsea Manning, (D-Fort Leavenworth), the former U.S. Army soldier-turned-traitor, who was a male named Bradley until he betrayed America and swiped on some lipstick, is running for the United States Senate in Maryland on the Democratic Party ticket. Manning is the perfect Democratic Party candidate: Anti everything that’s quintessentially America in stilettos and a skirt. Manning’s campaign video features a defiant Chelsea proclaiming, “We don’t need them anymore,” with clips of police clashing with protesters. It is about as ludicrous as Democrat Dana Nessel’s campaign ad for Michigan attorney general where she says: “When...

  • Trump heading to Pennsylvania to back GOP candidate Rick Saccone in key special House race

    President Trump is throwing his weight behind a fellow Republican's battle to keep an open House seat in GOP hands Thursday, in what could be a key bellwether for the November midterm elections. Rick Saccone will face off against Democrat Conor Lamb on March 13 in a push to succeed former Republican Rep. Tim Murphy’s 18th Congressional District seat. Murphy resigned in October over a sex scandal in which his mistress claimed the pro-life conservative congressman pressured her to have an abortion. “Will be going to Pennsylvania today in order to give my total support to RICK SACCONE, running for...

    John Abarr is a known member of the notorious Ku Klux Klan, and he's somewhat remembered for his involvement in a push to make the Klan more "inclusive." That's right, he's the guy who wanted to recruit minorities into an organization best known for terrorizing and murdering minorities. Can't imagine why it didn't work. Abarr now wants to run for office. He's running for the Montana House of Representatives as a Democrat.

    Maxine, and her family members, who are actually becoming rich on the backs of American taxpayers Maxine Waters has represented, in the U.S. House of Representatives, a region of communities on the southside of Los Angeles since 1991. She is criticized for not even living in her district, one of four members of Congress in California to make the claim. However, truth be told, her lavish mansion in South Los Angeles used to be in her district, but redistricting shifted Waters and a few of her neighbors, into the 37th District now represented by Democratic Rep. Karen Bass. Waters now...

    Rep. Kevin Cramer, a North Dakota Republican, announced Thursday he will not challenge sitting Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in the Senate race this fall. During an interview with KFYR radio, Cramer said he and his family decided the best decision was for him to just run again for his House seat. The move is seen as a blow to Republicans who hope to pick up the seat in the traditionally deep red state. 10 Senate seats most likely to flip in 2018 Senate candidate: Obama's birth certificate is a 'phony document' Joe Arpaio, controversial sheriff pardoned by Trump, enters Arizona...

  • Was the DNC/Clinton campaign-funded dossier used to obtain Trump FISA warrant?

    01/10/2018 3:31:56 PM PST · by springwater13 · 93 replies
    The unverified dossier alleging connections between President Trump’s campaign and the Russians was used as evidence by the FBI to gain approval from a secret court to monitor members of Trump’s team, this reporter has learned. A large portion of the evidence presented in the salacious 35-page dossier put together by former British spy Christopher Steele, has either been proven wrong or remains unsubstantiated. However, the FBI gained approval nevertheless to surveil members of Trump’s campaign and “it’s outrageous and clearly should be thoroughly investigated,” said a senior law enforcement source, with knowledge of the process. Multiple sources told this...

    Florida GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis asked Speaker of the House Paul Ryan on Tuesday to declassify all of the Department of Justice and FBI’s Trump dossier files, The Caller News Foundation has learned. DeSantis, the chairman of the House Oversight subcommittee on National Security, formally asked Ryan in a letter to invoke Rule X in order to declassify all documents obtained by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Under House rules, the speaker of the House acts as an ex-officio member of any select committee, which includes the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Under Rule X, the speaker...

They’re targeting the author of a dossier of allegations about President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham say they’ve referred former British spy Christopher Steele

    American Thinker ^ | 4 January 2018 | Susan Stanton
    Unprecedented social and political conflict was laid bare in 2017, the likes of which have seldom been seen before. Our American social fabric is in tatters. We are looking less enlightened and more divided than at any time since the Civil War. Progressives on both seaboards are in a battle for political supremacy over old-school thinkers. Boundaries are analogous to a resurrection of the Mason-Dixon line, except it's now the East and West Coasts versus the rest of America. Comparing more recent history, we look even less unified than we did in the 1960s – which says something painful about...
  • My thoughts on what will happen when NPV goes into effect

    01/03/2018 11:35:20 AM PST · by Mafe · 46 replies
    NPV was started back in 2007. Never mind that it already violates the law - as I understand states must get Congressional approval before entering into contracts that affect the federal government. So far, ever since 2007, the Democrat has won the popular vote in every presidential election and in every NPV state. When NPV gets enough states to reach 270, there will be a situation where one candidate wins the popular vote in a state but is denied the electoral votes from that state because of NPV. This alone would be enough to cause a lawsuit, and on top...

    Washington (CNN)The most interesting Senate race in 2018 might have nothing to do with whether Republicans or Democrats control the chamber after this year's midterm elections. The decision Tuesday by Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah to retire teed up Mitt Romney -- the 2012 Republican presidential nominee turned leading intra-party critic of President Donald Trump -- to run for a job that would give him major influence over the remainder of Trump's presidency. But Hatch is a Republican. Romney is a Republican. And if Romney is stopped, it'll be because another Republican won the nomination in Utah. It'll be a...

    In essence, the Clinton’s created the Russian “angle” out of thin air; and the FBI and DOJ used that creation as the legal underpinning for the counterintelligence operation. The cointel op was always just a ruse for wiretapping, surveillance and monitoring of Donald Trump campaign officials. If Hillary was elected, the entire counterintelligence operation just disappears into the ether. No-one would ever know about it.

    The Trump Haters are taking a risk with their relentless vitriol aimed at the President. It is a vague one, with unknown consequences. But it is a risk, nonetheless. Many were born late the night of November 8, 2016: The Trump Haters. Assumption was their mother. It would take DNA testing to i.d. their father. He could be Entitlement, Arrogance, or, Naiveté. Maybe all three. In any regard, they hate all things Trump. His family, his supporters, his policies, his hotels, his golf courses – but mostly Trump the man. That he is today President of these United States only...

    The Coalinga city council is suing Fresno County to overturn an election decided partly by the sex offenders in a state hospital. Voters rejected a penny sales tax increase by just 37 votes in November. 127 of those 'no' votes came from inside the walls of Coalinga State Hospital, where some of the state's sex offenders are actually legal voters.
