    A report from Bloomberg highlights the anxiety within the professional state department apparatus as Secretary Tillerson begins substantive cuts in the number of pontificating elitist bureaucrats. It’s amazing how the ankle-biters never seem to recognize these consequential shifts in policy and approach toward dismantling the bureaucracy. The State Department is the cornerstone of Deep State operations. It is a massively bloated institution filled with some of the most entrenched political globalists and ideologues. Trump is no longer playing only with evil and cunning players who are still predictable, easily beatable dopes, like Hillary. He is playing against killers, with his...

Sooner or later President Trump is going to do something dramatic to break the...
  • Schumer Stumped Can’t Name Even One Democrat Who Could Beat Trump in 2020 Election (VIDEO)

    Chuck Schumer (D-NY) had a sit-down interview with MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt and couldn’t name a single Democrat who could beat Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Chuckie also couldn’t name the leader of the Democrat party–that’s because they don’t have one! Unless of course you count Maxine Waters. Hah! The Democrat party is in turmoil. Their anti-American, anti-white, pro-Islam message is failing. Americans are sick of the failing policies from the left; we are sick of the non-stop negativity. Americans want jobs and security. Trump is able to convey that message, not the clowns on the left.

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) leadership was called into question by new voices Thursday night as hopes expire of passing a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare before President Donald Trump’s first 100 days end on Saturday. At a meeting on the Hill late Thursday night, the speaker and his House Republican leadership team decided to further delay the vote. With what appeared to be the acquiescence of conservatives in the Freedom Caucus and think-tanks like Club for Growth and FreedomWorks, who took much of the blame for the failure of the first attempt to pass the American...

    In Part I we explained why President Trump has not received any legislation: To Wit: President Donald Trump winning the election threw a monkey wrench into the entire DC system…. The modern legislative machine is frozen in place. The “America First” policies represented by candidate Donald Trump are not within the legislative constructs coming from the authors of the legislation. Congress has no bills to advance because all of the myriad of bills and briefs written are not in line with President Trump policy. That’s why congress has not passed any legislation for President Trump to sign. There’s no entity...

    Perhaps it is valuable to reset the larger frames of reference and provide clarity. Many, heck, most people think when they vote for a federal politician -a representative- they are voting for a person who will go to Washington DC and write or enact legislation. This is the old-fashioned “schoolhouse rock” perspective based on decades past. Sundance is talking to those of us that read on Treehouse but I thought it was excellent information on how bills are made, written, sold, and passed...and why President Trump hasn't had any bills to sign as yet... There is not a single congress...

    The group of conservative hardliners known as the House Freedom Caucus has officially lost two members since it came under fire for sinking the GOP healthcare bill last month. Rep. Brian Babin's (R-Texas) spokesman, Jimmy Milstead, confirmed on Thursday that the Texas Republican had recently left the Freedom Caucus. “When President Obama came to office, we had to try to stop his socialist agenda. And I thought the Freedom Caucus was a great place to do that,” Babin said. “Now we have the opportunity of a lifetime with President Trump in there and his conservative agenda. We have control of...

    While Hillary Clinton loyal aide Huma Abedin was reportedly sidelined in the final stretch of the 2016 presidential campaign as a result of Abedin’s husband’s child-porn scandal, she was potentially an even greater liability than known. It turns out Anthony Weiner wasn’t the only family member under investigation. In fact, the U.S. Justice Department has been actively prosecuting two other Abedin family members – for conspiracy, wire fraud and securities fraud – and she along with the State Department, where she previously worked for Clinton, are mentioned in the federal case, court records show. Other documents reveal the same allegedly...

    President Trump met with conservative media personality Matt Drudge in the Oval Office, Politico reported Thursday. Trump has kept in close contact with a number of conservative media figures, the report said. And in addition to meeting with Trump at the White House, Drudge reportedly speaks regularly with Jared Kushner, the president's top aide and son-in-law. Earlier this month, the Drudge Report proprietor said he thinks Republicans in Congress are intentionally undermining the president with legislative and policy hurdles and obstructions. "I suspect there's a sabotage," he said earlier this month. "Do you know Obama had the stimulus package on...

    Despite continuous stories in the media reporting that President Donald Trump has the lowest favorable rating in his first 100 days of any president in modern history, Congress’s approval is worse. A new Gallup poll shows Trump’s favorable rating stands at 40 percent, one percentage point above 39 percent for House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI). Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s favorable rating is eight percentage points lower than Ryan’s at 31 percent. But the honor for having the lowest rating goes to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), which stands at 27 percent.

    Forty-nine years ago, Vice President Hubert Humphrey was the Democratic candidate for president. The year 1968 was a tumultuous one that saw the assassinations of rival candidate Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. Lyndon Johnson's unpopular lame-duck Democratic administration imploded due to massive protests against the Vietnam War. Yet Humphrey almost defeated Republican nominee Richard Nixon, losing the election by just over 500,000 votes (43.4 percent to 42.7 percent). Infighting Democrats could have defeated the unpopular Nixon if not for a few unforeseen developments. Their convention in Chicago turned into a creepy carnival of...

    Hours before the Trump administration briefed 100 senators today on the issues surrounding North Korea, a more consequential announcement was made. The jaw dropping announcement (hidden by U.S. media) appears to show just how long President Trump has been putting the North Korea strategy together. However, before discussing that aspect, we review the Senate Briefing at the White House: Today Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, presided over a meeting meeting to brief Senators. The details of that meeting have...

    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly announced on Wednesday the official launch of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s office for victims of illegal immigrant crime, and a program to help track the custody status of violent, illegal perpetrators. All crime is terrible, but these victims are unique — and often too ignored,” Kelly said on Wednesday. “They are casualties of crimes that should never have taken place — because the people who victimized them often times should not have been in the country in the first place.”

    WASHINGTON — Republicans drew battle lines Wednesday over the spending bill that would keep the government running by refusing to fund ObamaCare subsidies. “We’re not doing that,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said Wednesday after a closed-door meeting with his GOP caucus. Declining to include payments to insurers in the April must-pass spending bill increases the drama for a possible government shutdown at midnight Friday. Pulling the money that helps low-income Americans afford insurance would create “monumental” instability in the individual marketplace, Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens) warned Wednesday. Democrats warned of dire consequences if Trump carries out his threat to sabotage...

    There was a major announcement this week and we were given a heads up about it in advance. It was to happen at 11.15am on Tuesday, an announcement by Theresa May. I was kind of expecting her to reveal David Icke was right all along, then shed her human suit and order us to bow down and welcome our lizard alien overlords. Unfortunately, it wasn’t that exciting or dramatic. After recently stating categorically she would never call a snap election, last week Theresa, you guessed it folks, announced a snap election in June. I know it’s hard to imagine a...

    President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have steered a course during the administration’s first 100 days that anti-abortion activists have been dreaming about for decades. “I think if you looked ten years ago, and you asked the question, ‘Will Planned Parenthood be defunded in the next decade?’ everyone would have said, ‘No,’” Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser tells Breitbart News. “But the presidency of Donald Trump and the vice presidency of Mike Pence have changed all that.” The pro-life base of the Republican Party saw the beginnings of change from the start of Trump’s...

    Democrat Congressional Candidate and Georgia darling, Jon Ossoff paid human smugglers operating across Europe approximately $2,000. Everyday we learn more and more about this young Democrat who was foisted onto Georgians by outside money. We also just reported that Ossoff didn’t vote in the 2012 election. He claims he couldn’t vote because he was abroad. Yeah ok, makes sense! Someone who was involved in human smuggling shouldn’t be able to run for office, but since he’s a Democrat, this will probably get swept under the rug.

    Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the joint candidate of the French Communist Party and the Unbowed France political movement, is surging in the polls following his pledge to "raise taxes on the rich to 100% and gut the goose that lays the golden eggs for the benefit of the working class." "The idea that anyone has the right to withhold anything from the people and their representative, the state, is a pernicious doctrine we must exterminate," Mélenchon said. "For too long progressives have held back from this obvious truth and solution to society's problems. When everything is thrown into the common pot and...

    Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney appears on Bloomberg News to discuss the seismic, epic, thundershock confrontational clash that is about to take place between the Trump administration and the DC UniParty. There are no adjectives capable of describing the scope and immeasurable scale of the battle that is about to transpire between the White House and the Democrat/Republican UniParty. MONEY is where every entity within the full-swamp goes nuclear against President Trump and the administration. Despite all prior discussions toward this end, it is doubtful that more than one-in-a-million people can fully grasp the dynamic at play....

    The European Commission is plotting to force the UK into paying even more for Brexit, burdening Britain with all related divorce costs and risks, according to draft negotiating directives. The potentially huge bill must also be paid in euros rather than pounds, the European Union’s (EU) unelected executive arm said, meaning the UK will bear all the currency risk. The list of demands sees little room for compromise; it includes the costs of relocating any EU institution and the UK’s share of a massive aid package given to Turkey in return for easing the migrant crisis.
