    This may be something or it may be nothing, but this is DEFINITELY worth keeping an eye on. According to Investors Business Daily, George Soros just bought over 350,000 SHARES of Facebook stock within the last couple of months. Soros has had a history of buying influence, even to the point of Hillary taking Foreign Policy orders from him. However, now that he has NO SHOT of controlling Trump in any way, he may be trying to buy some social media influence to oppose Trump.

    Deborah Coughlin, the president of New York City’s elite Metropolitan Republican Club that recently wrongly and forcibly removed all Trump supporters from its board, broke federal campaign finance laws in order to donate thousands of dollars to Democratic New York Senator Chuck Schumer in 2003. Schumer has been one of the most anti-Trump Senators since President Donald J. Trump took office in January. In a story that GotNews broke and that the New York Post has now picked up, a deeper dive into the financials surrounding the scandal-plagued board of New York City’s Metropolitan Republican Club has produced more troubling...

    A prominent congressman said Thursday that he won’t help advance any funding requests from sanctuary cities, saying he’s taking a personal stand in trying to stop jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate in deporting illegal immigrants. Counties, cities and school boards line up each year to beg their members of Congress to put in a good word for them when the federal government is working on its annual spending bills, hoping to garner a piece of the federal pie. But Rep. Duncan Hunter, California Republican, said he won’t be involved in any request filed by a jurisdiction that tries to thwart...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's staffers are afraid that he will "sacrifice" one or more of them to federal prosecutors investigating potential corruption at City Hall. A source in City Hall told the New York Post on Monday of the anxiety being experienced by aides who fear de Blasio will throw one of them under the bus over allegations that he and his office gave illegal favors to the mayor's campaign donors from 2013. De Blasio is expected to meet with Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in the next few days. "Folks in the mayor's office are very...

    Sanctuary cities receive over $27 billion each year from the federal government, giving President Donald Trump significant leverage over cities such as New York and San Francisco to enforce immigration law, according to a new report. OpenTheBooks.com identified 106 sanctuary cities in the United States in their oversight report, released Friday. In all, cities that ignore federal law by harboring illegal immigrants are receiving $27.741 billion in grants and direct payments in fiscal year 2016. Twenty-two percent of the roughly 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States live in just 12 American cities, according to the report. Those cities,...

    Gov. Greg Abbott has followed through on his threat to cut off state funding for Travis County over its new "sanctuary" policy. Abbott's office said Wednesday it has canceled criminal justice grants it usually administers to the county, whose sheriff, Sally Hernandez, recently announced her department would reduce its cooperation with federal immigration authorities when they request an inmate be flagged for possible deportation. The policy was set to go into effect Wednesday. The move appears to target about $1.5 million Travis County was due to receive this year from the criminal justice division of the governor’s office. The division...

George Soros and his fellow deep-pocket funders of the Democratic Party and left-wing causes gathered with a lineup of party activists and luminaries from Hollywood, K Street, and Wall Street for a three-day “investment conference” (November 15-17) at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C....

"What the executive order does is, it directs the secretary to ... look at funding streams that are going to these cities ... and figure out how we can defund those streams," Spicer said of an executive action Trump was expected to sign later in the day. Spicer dismissed suggestions that Trump would seek to deport children who were brought...

The Hill has reported: “The Trump Administration needs to reform and cut spending dramatically, and targeting waste like the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities would be a good first step in showing that the Trump Administration is serious about radically reforming the federal budget,” said Brian Darling, a former aide to Paul and a former staffer at the Heritage Foundation.

The aides said written notification dated Jan. 20 was sent to Congress just hours before Donald Trump took the oath of...

The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”).

    Democratic donors stung by Hillary Clinton’s upset loss in the presidential race feel like they just set their money on fire. The sore feelings are a huge problem for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which is trying to rebuild its image and reinvigorate a defeated party in time for challenging midterm elections in 2018. It’s also a worry for top liberal activists as they prepare for war with President-elect Donald Trump and a GOP Congress that is hell-bent on rolling back President Obama’s accomplishments. Many Democratic donors still feel burned by the party’s 2016 election losses and what they see...

  • Hillary’s RECOUNT Scheme: Stein’s Dirty Money & The Evil Cabal’s Real Plan

    Hillary Clinton’s recount scheme started on election night, right after Pennsylvania’s electoral votes went to Donald Trump. A dirty trick was formed behind the scenes, and now, leaked information exposes the roles of Barack Obama, Jill Stein, and the rest of the evil cabal behind it all.
