    CIA urges POTUS Trump to delay release of 3,000 never-before-seen documents on assassination of John F. Kennedy Experts fear the release of secret JFK assassination documents. The CIA is urging President Donald Trump to delay disclosing some of the files for another 25 years according to friend and political adviser Roger Stone but the National Archives would not say whether any agencies have appealed the release of the documents. According to The Gateway Pundit, Roger Stone and Gerald Posner, two New York Times bestselling authors who are polar opposites about who killed JFK, have joined together to urge Donald Trump...
  • Trump Warns McCain: 'I Fight Back -- And It Won't Be Pretty'

    On Monday, fake Republican Senator John McCain gave a speech in which he criticized "half-baked nationalism," which he associated with President Trump. It was a sad attack by a man who has been little more than a Democrat for dozens of years now, but of course, Trump felt forced to fight back. And he did so in typical Trump style. Appearing on WMAL in Washington, D.C., the president was asked what he thought of McCain's attack on the "half-baked, spurious nationalism" that's "cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems." Well, Trump said, McCain better be...
  • Trump Defeats ISIS In Months — After Years Of Excuses From Obama

    Terrorism: Nine months after President Trump promised to defeat ISIS "quickly and effectively," U.S.-backed forces captured Raqqa, which until Tuesday had served as the ISIS capital. The battle now is over who deserves credit: Trump or President Obama. Trump, not surprisingly, claims it for himself: "It had to do with the people I put in and it had to do with rules of engagement," Trump said in a radio interview. Before dismissing this as typical Trump self-aggrandizement, consider that for several years Obama insisted that a quick and decisive victory against ISIS was all but impossible.

    It turns out the Obama administration knew the Russians were engaged in bribery, kickbacks and extortion in order to gain control of US atomic resources — yet still OK’d that 2010 deal to give Moscow control of one-fifth of America’s uranium. This reeks. Peter Schweizer got onto part of the scandal in his 2015 book, “Clinton Cash”: the gifts of $145 million to the Clinton Foundation, and the $500,000 fee to Bill for a single speech, by individuals involved in a deal that required Hillary Clinton’s approval. The New York Times confirmed and followed up on Schweizer’s reporting — all...

    It has been reported that Samantha Power, while serving as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, requested or initiated a request for more than 260 unmaskings of Americans whose conversations were picked up during surveillance. But today, according to Rep. Trey Gowdy, Power denied making anything close to that number of unmasking requests. Here is what Gowdy told Fox News’ Bret Baier: BAIER: You are also looking, and have talked to the former Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power. We reported that she requested or her officer requested 260 plus efforts to unmask, in other words, get who was...

Spicer was a top aide at the Republican National Committee during the campaign and became press secretary after Trump became president. He resigned in July.

    President Donald Trump delivered a speech at the Heritage Foundation President’s Club dinner on Tuesday, praising interim president Ed Feulner as “a fearless defender of our Constitution.” “For nearly a half a century, you have been titans in the fight to defend, promote, and preserve our great American heritage,” Trump said. The president, who ran as a populist conservative with an “America First” agenda, came to greet the donors behind the conservative think tank that has influenced the Republican policy for decades.

    Congressman Trent Franks wants his 20-week abortion ban to get a Senate vote. But to get there, he needs Mitch McConnell to end the filibuster — or find another line of work.The House passed the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act — or “Micah’s Law” — on October 3rd. If it becomes law, abortions would be banned after 20 weeks of pregnancy, with exceptions for rape, incest and the life of the mother.“We’re going to protect unborn children once they’ve reached the beginning of the sixth month, because that’s clearly at a time when there’s no real medical authority that...

John McCain questioned “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in America’s foreign policy.Trump said in a radio interview with WMAL in Washington that “people have to be careful because at some point I fight back.” The president added “I’m being very, very nice but at some point I fight back and it won’t be pretty.”McCain, a former Navy pilot who spent 5½ years in a Vietnam prisoner of war camp and is battling brain cancer, offered a simple response to Trump: “I have faced tougher adversaries.” In Philadelphia on Monday night,...

    Hillary Clinton is desperately trying to disrupt the news cycle after a devastating bombshell report was published exposing her involvement in the sale of 20% of America’s Uranium to Russia after MILLIONS of dollars flowed to the Clinton Foundation. As previously reported, the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were involved in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in order to benefit Vladimir Putin prior to Obama admin handing over 20% of America’s Uranium to Russia, according to a devastating report by John Solomon via The Hill.Who was right in the middle of it all?

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says a bill passed by the House that would ban most abortions in the country past the fifth month of pregnancy will get a vote in the Senate and is supported by “virtually all” GOP senators. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) introduced the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act two days after it was approved by the House, and President Donald Trump’s administration has indicated it will sign the 20-week abortion ban into law if passed by both chambers of Congress.“But, the House has passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Children Protection Act before only to see it...

    The chairman of the influential Senate Armed Services Committee said Tuesday he'll hold up President Donald Trump's nominees for key Defense Department posts until the administration delivers details about its new strategy for the war in Afghanistan. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said his committee needs the particulars in order to properly outfit the U.S. armed forces with training and equipment. "If we don't get the information we need, we can't do that," he told reporters. McCain said the Trump administration acts as though Congress isn't a co-equal branch of government, "and that they don't have to respond to what the...

    As a result, just about everyone was left in the dark about the extent of the corruption and national security threat that the FBI had unearthed. The lack of fanfare left many key players in Washington with no inkling that a major Russian nuclear corruption scheme with serious national security implications had been uncovered. *** Ronald Hosko, who served as the assistant FBI director in charge of criminal cases when the investigation was underway, told The Hill he did not recall ever being briefed about Mikerin’s case by the counterintelligence side of the bureau despite the criminal charges that were...

    SANTA FE, N.M. — A proposed overhaul of New Mexico’s state science standards for public schools came under intense criticism Monday at a packed public hearing in the state capital for omitting or deleting references to global warming, evolution and the age of the Earth. Comments at the hearing overwhelmingly sided against state revisions to a set of standards developed by a consortium of states and the National Academy of Sciences. Of the 55 initial speakers, none backed the standards. Public school teachers, state university faculty, Democratic Party officials and the science chairman for a school catering to local Native...

    In 2009 Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted more control over U.S. nuclear capability and the Clintons helped him get there. According to a bombshell report published today in The Hill the corruption surrounding the sale of Uranium One when President Obama was in the White House, which overwhelmingly and personally benefited former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, was far worse than we first knew and the FBI documented all of it. Bolding is mine: Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had...
