    The Awans and their associates collected more than $5 million in pay from congressional offices, (Including $138,235 from Frederica Wilson) often drawing chief-of-staff level pay though there is reason to believe many didn’t even show up. They are suspected of cybersecurity violations.

    (1) you successfully exploited the corruptness of the Clinton's and the Obama regime and corrupted a once excellent investigative agency, the FBI (2) you have enriched yourself, your friends and yes, the corrupted classes in the US government (3) you enjoyed Obama's "flexibility" in which he "colluded" with you against his country (4) so you invaded Crimea, destabilize Ukraine and flex your muscles because you have the goods on these people (5) who would you rather have in the White House, someone you can continue to blackmail or some total outsider? Tough choice. By the way, this choice is probably...

    Rep. Frederica Wilson is laughing off criticism lobbed at her from White House chief of staff John Kelly, saying his comments show "I'm a rock star now." The Florida Democrat made the comment to Miami Fox affiliate WSVN-TV Thursday in response to Kelly. "You mean to tell me that I have become so important that the White House is following me and my words?" Wilson said. "This is amazing. It's amazing, that is absolutely phenomenal. I have to tell my kids that I'm a rock star now." She also said she has been getting threats from white nationalists in the...

    Nikki Haley and Israel's UN Ambassador Danon at the Security Council this week denouncing Iran U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley used her entire speech to the UN Security Council on Wednesday to denounce the Iranian regime on multiple grounds. It was the Security Council first meeting on the ‘Situation in the Middle East’ after President Donald Trump’s statement on the new American policy on Iran. The session was supposed to be devoted to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. However, Ambassador Haley departed from the monthly ritual during which Israel is normally singled out for criticism by other Council members....

    "But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it" Reading the “news” over the ‘Net these days is enough to want to pull one’s hair out. But it is the mainstream media reports of how Western leaders are turning on their own people, not the Fake News that most rational folk can spot at a glance that is really the most worrisome. Easy to dismiss theories from activist talking heads like Sally Kohn over at CNN, who said Harvey Weinstein’s fall “grew from rage over Trump”. (CNN), or that cowgirl hat-wearing “yippie yippie ki...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 19, 2017 | Diana Stancy Correll
    Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., says she will no longer comment on a Gold Star widow's phone call with President Trump after White House chief of staff John Kelly's emotional press briefing in which he criticized the lawmaker for politicizing the call. "The congresswoman will not be making any further comment on the issue because the focus should be on helping a grieving widow and family heal, not on her or Donald Trump," Wilson's spokesperson said in a statement Thursday. Earlier in the day, Wilson had said Kelly's statements were motivated so he could keep his position in the White House....

    There are many politicians, especially on the federal level who've never served, sought and obtained deferments, and some who've embellished aspects of their time in to get elected. But there are some things that those who've never served should never interject themselves into. Many of us who served know of at least one person who died during an op. We all have our personal ways of dealing with such an event and if I may be so bold, I don't think any of us would take offense at the term "knew what he signed up for".
  • Mueller’s Role in Delivering Uranium to Russians Raises Questions

    The New American ^ | Wednesday, 02 August 2017 | Written by Steve Byas
    The latest release late last week by Julian Assange at WikiLeaks of a 2009 State Department cable to the Russians raises fresh questions about the objectivity of Special Counsel Robert Mueller (shown), the man named to investigate any possible “collusions” between the presidential campaign of Donald Trump and the Russians. In 2009, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton directed FBI Director Mueller to deliver a sample of Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) to Russia. The uranium had reportedly been stolen. It seems particularly odd, considering that the FBI is not under the supervision of the State Department, and that the FBI director...

    America the Jesuit Review ^ | October 19, 2017 | Robert M. Shrum
    In contrast to Hillary Rodham Clinton’s earlier politically engineered writings, carefully combed for coming campaigns, this is a real book, written by a real person, suffused with the raw wounds of her defeat. It is marked by the bluntness and occasional tartness of someone who seems to know that her future as a candidate is past. What Happened is also marred by an apparently irrepressible instinct to accept blame and then to pass it on. I understand the frustration. As a close adviser to Al Gore during his presidential campaign in 2000, I saw him win the popular vote, have...
  • Ryan’s friends flee as frustration with Trump grows (by 'friends' they mean minions)

    Paul Ryan’s governing caucus is dwindling. A number of the speaker's closest comrades in the House have called it quits in recent weeks because they're tired of President Donald Trump's antics, depressed over the GOP's dearth of legislative accomplishments this year or have personal reasons. Whatever the causes, the departures are certain to make Ryan's job as House speaker harder, depriving him of loyal lieutenants in a conference already riven by ideological and stylistic divisions.

    Three senators are putting pressure on internet giants like Facebook and Google to be more transparent about who is buying political ads on their sites in the wake of revelations that Russian-linked operatives placed ads on social media networks to sow division in the runup to the 2016 election. On Thursday, Republican Sen. John McCain announced he is joining Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Mark Warner to co-sponsor the Honest Ads Act, which would require political ads sold on the internet to follow the same rules as ones sold on television, radio, and satellite networks, all of which have to...

    Rep. Frederica Wilson's, D-Fla., public criticism of a recent phone call President Trump made to a Gold Star family member left White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly "stunned" and "brokenhearted," he said on Thursday. At the daily press briefing, Kelly defended Trump's call to the grieving family of Sgt. La David Johnson and ripped into Wilson, referring to her twice as an "empty barrel." His remarks, in which Kelly reflected on the loss of his own son in Afghanistan, left the briefing room silent....

    Politico ^ | 1/28/16 | Tucker Carlson
    Pretty embarrassing. And yet they’re not embarrassed. Many of those same overpaid, underperforming tax-exempt sinecure-holders are now demanding that Trump be stopped. Why? Because, as his critics have noted in a rising chorus of hysteria, Trump represents “an existential threat to conservatism.” Let that sink in. Conservative voters are being scolded for supporting a candidate they consider conservative because it would be bad for conservatism? And by the way, the people doing the scolding? They’re the ones who’ve been advocating for open borders, and nation-building in countries whose populations hate us, and trade deals that eliminated jobs while enriching their...

    As a nation we're divided between those who want to strive to achieve and those who thrive because they receive United we stand has long been part of the inner strength that enabled America to rise from thirteen disjointed colonies on the edge of a lonely sea to the pinnacle of power. Some people believe in the Six Degrees of Separation Theory: that everyone in the world are six or fewer steps away from each other and that a direct line such as “a friend of a friend” can be drawn to connect any two people in a maximum of...

    Nor is it only American patriots who should never give up the fight but all who count on the freedom and liberty of the West; all those who know down at heart that “Without America, there is no Free World” Former President George W. Bush—whose lips remained forever sealed during the eight long years that Barack Hussein Obama was uninterruptedly fundamentally transforming America—threw his weight on the no-evidence conspiracy that the Russians stole the election from Hillary Clinton, today. “In remarks at a forum in New York held by the organization that runs his presidential library, Bush said the Russian...

    When the Roman civil wars ended in 31 BC with the defeat of Antony and Cleopatra, Augustus Caesar consolidated his power in Rome through the use of an elite guard called the Praetorians, whose sole duty was to protect the Emperor. The special military unit did so with devastating efficiency through the use of force or subterfuge to quell civil disturbances and political intrigues. The Praetorians were particularly adept at eliminating any perceived threat to their own power, which turned out to be their primary mission. When the Roman Senate debated whether to restore the Republic after the lunatic Emperor...

    Video: Trump had finished the press conference and sent away the reporters. The pool cameras were exiting the Oval Office when Trump began to respond vigorously to another question. The cameras spun around and caught Trump eviscerating a question on a Russia Uranium deal approved by the Obama administration. President Trump told exiting reporters, “I think that’s your Russia story. That’s your real Russia story.” Trump continued and dropped an unexpected bomb on the dumbfounded gaggle of reporters.

    It’s suddenly big news that there are perverts in Hollywood. The really big news is that former President Barack Hussein Obama’s communist and terrorist-support network remains a state secret. Attorney General Jeff Sessions won’t touch it. Until we come to grips with Obama, our first Marxist president with radical Muslim sympathies, we are adrift as a nation. He ran for office as a “committed Christian,” a monumental deception to conceal his record of service to the communist cause, Muslim background, and grooming by suspected Soviet espionage agent Frank Marshall Davis. As the world marks the 100th anniversary of the 1917...

    Of Two Minds ^ | 10/19/2017 | Charles Hugh Smith
    The rot eating away at our society and economy is typically papered over with bogus statistics that "prove" everything's getting better every day in every way. The prime "proof" of rising prosperity is the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which never fails to loft higher, with the rare excepts being Spots of Bother (recessions) that never last more than a quarter or two. Longtime correspondent Dave P. of Market Daily Briefing recently summarized the key flaw in GDP: GDP doesn't reflect changes in the balance sheet, i.e. debt. So if we borrow money to pay people to dig holes and then fill them with the excavated...

    It has become de rigeur amongst Democrats to suggest that President Donald Trump is unhinged, psychologically unstable, just a little bit crazy. His opponents have even suggested an obscure Constitutional amendment be invoked to remove the president from his office because of his allegedly impaired mental abilities. Hillary Clinton never misses to a beat in her quest to define Trump as a grossly unhinged and egotistic beast who clearly can’t be trusted to manage the affairs of state. But what are we to make of Clinton’s increasingly bizarre and cutting remarks that have defined the latest leg of her book...
