    President Trump has submitted to the Senate the nomination of Christopher Wray for FBI director, the White House announced Monday night. If confirmed for a 10-year term, Wray would replace James Comey, who Trump fired in May. (snip) Wray, 50, a white-collar criminal defense attorney, previously led the Justice Department's Criminal Division during two years — 2003 to 2005 — of President George W. Bush's administration. In private practice, Wray's most recent work, he represented New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in the "Bridgegate" scandal, in which two of Christie's aides were given prison sentences after closing down the George Washington...

    The American Report ^ | April 22, 2015 | American Report Staff
    April 22, 2015 This, the sixth and final installment of The Betrayal Papers, will explore various projects, schemes, and associations that tie Obama and his associates together. A preponderance of these project are based out of Chicago, the crossroad of the global Left, Islamic “civilization jihad,” and the Communist mafia. The themes to observe in each case are deception, greed, and power. To have any chance to retain our freedoms and personal safety, we must recognize the depth of the treason from within; we must name the perpetrators and conquer them before they end America. But first, three profiles of...
  • Pope Francis Calls For ‘One World Government’ To ‘Save Humanity’

    Pope Francis called for “a one world government” and “political authority” this week, arguing that the creation of the one world government is needed to combat major issues such as “climate change.” Speaking with Ecuador’s “El Universo” newspaper, the Pope said that the United Nations doesnt have enough power and must be granted full governmental control “for the good of humanity.” But what is raising eyebrows is the Pope’s call for a new global political authority. Here is more from the Guardian: Pope Francis will this week call for changes in lifestyles and energy consumption to avert the “unprecedented destruction...

    The Blaze ^ | Chris Enloe
    One of the central campaign promises of Republicans since 2010, which has helped them sweep elections nationwide including the White House last year, has been their vow to repeal and replace Obamacare with a customer-centered, free market solution. Indeed, the promise was likely a significant reason some reluctant voters chose to vote for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton last year. And once Trump won the White House, he continued to promise a repeal and replace of Obamacare would come in the immediate days of his presidency. However, the initial effort by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and the White House...

    A New York judge is raking in $175,500-a-year in her state-taxpayer-funded salary — for sitting in jail. Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio has been locked up since June 5 for violating her parole for a DWI conviction. “You’re ruining my f–king life,” Astacio reportedly whined to cops when they found her behind the wheel of her car on the side of the highway around 8:00 a.m. on Feb. 13, 2016. She reeked of alcohol and refused a Breathalyzer, according to reports. Still she got off with a $500 fine, a one-year conditional discharge and an interlock device on her...

    A member of the House Freedom Caucus on Friday called on the Justice Department's special counsel, Robert Mueller, to recuse himself in the federal probe into Russian election meddling. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Az) said the "integrity of his appointment" was in question due to Mueller's friendship with ousted FBI Director James Comey. "His ability to be impartial is doubtful because he has surrounded himself with highly partisan lawyers who make a special practice to line the coffers of Democrats," the freshman Republican lawmaker said in a statement, referencing attorneys Mueller has hired who have Democratic political leanings.

    James Comey may have misled senators on May 3, when he testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he had never been an anonymous source in news reports related to the Russia investigation. By that time, he had already leaked several private conversations he had with President Trump to his friend Benjamin Wittes, editor-in-chief of the blog Lawfare and former editorial writer for the Washington Post.

    President Trump may make significant changes to White House press briefings. The New York Times reported on Tuesday that the president is considering limiting the number of briefings to once a week. It also alleges he’s thinking about requesting reporters submit written questions to the White House in advance. That same day Press Secretary Sean Spicer held his first on-camera briefing in more a week amid rumors he may be replaced in a staff shake up. While Spicer did not deny a potential departure, he did confirm the office of communications is looking to fill vacancies.

    Protestors took to the streets of London purportedly in response to the tragic fire at Grenfell Towers; but the reality is that this is nothing but the Militant Left using undemocratic means to force another election. Politicians are to blame for this directly; it is no coincidence that Labour Shadow Chancellor, John McDonald, several days ago called for a million people to take to the streets and force an early election…and then people take to the streets?!?!?! This is not a Grassroots movement of spontaneous uprising; it is a well-organised and well-funded protest with the aim of removing a democratically...

    To understand the play at stake here, and the larger scheme to keep the Obama political surveillance from the sunlight of discovery, it is important to remember the only factually known illegal activity surrounding the entire Russian Election Conspiracy is: â—ľA.) the illegal leaking of intelligence reports (Comey et al), or the weaponization of intelligence for political motives; and â—ľB.) the illegal unmasking of names within U.S. intelligence reports by Obama White House officials (Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes), again for political motives.

    It has been reported today that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has been moved to the position of communications director and will no longer be the primary person delivering media press briefings. That said, it also appears many of the previous recommendations, CTH followers and Trump supporters have suggested, are being thoughtfully considered by the WH communications team. The media are apoplectic at the possibility the White House might shut down their ability to ‘create news-bites’ via planned and coordinated broadcast gotcha questioning. Below is the transcript for today’s press briefing. In my opinion, the non-broadcast format should be...

    Almost every intellectually honest political observer recognized the Washington Post report about President Trump being under investigation appeared manufactured on the thinnest of available anonymous precepts. In the wake of the Post report, when Asst. AG Rod Rosenstein delivered an unanticipated press release stating not to trust media reports from “anonymous officials” all doubt was essentially confirmed. There is no ‘there’ there; and President Trump was not/is not under investigation. Just another failed media attempt by The Washington Post to undermine the administration, with a blend of partisanship designed to generate an ideological self-fulfilling prophecy.

    A new bill seeks to track your money and assets incessantly, will enjoin any business with government ties to act as a de facto arm of DHS, and would steal all of your assets — including Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies — should you fail to report funds when traveling with over $10,000. Under the guise of combating money laundering, Senate Bill 1241, “Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017,” ramps up regulation of digital currency and other autocratic financial controls in an attempt to ensure none of your assets can escape one of the State’s most nefarious, despised...

LSU coach Paul Mainieri made the announcement Thursday, saying Scalise is in their prayers. "He really is in our thoughts and prayers," Mainieri said Thursday. "We're hoping that he's going to have a full recovery and a speedy recovery but my understanding is he's having to deal with some real issues here." (snip) The Louisiana Republican is an outspoken...

    First, an admission: I have seriously underestimated Donald Trump. After spending more than three years tracking the construct of the GOPe strategy to elect Jeb Bush, and having lost the most single important battle in May 2014 to stop it, I was deflated and disenfranchised. Few were willing to accept the road-map and sheer level of Machiavellian strategy deployed by the professional political class. Every single prediction (tripwire) which stems from understanding the construct was triggered in the exact sequence. We resigned ourselves to the outlook that Tom Donohue, Mitch McConnell and their team were going to pull it off....

    I’ll keep pointing out the obvious. Just like the previous battle in the intelligence community, there is a battle between Black Hats and White Hats within the U.S. Justice Department’s (FBI and DOJ) unelected career bureaucracy. If you read the Washington Post report claiming President Trump was under investigation for Obstruction of Justice by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, you will immediately note the first paragraph was framed specifically around “Anonymous Officials“. Again, tonight those same “anonymous officials” are mentioned in a Washington Post report claiming Jared Kushner is being investigated. (snip) Never, ever, underestimate the severity or skill of a...
