  • Newsmax's 30 Most Influential Republicans Under 30

    Newsmax ^ | January 12, 2017
    President Ronald Reagan once said, “The future does not belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave.” In that spirit, Newsmax has compiled a list of the brightest and bravest in the Grand Old Party under the age of 30. While a majority of these young people come from political backgrounds — including a few who even hold elected office — they all possess a great influence in promoting Republican values that belies their ages. Whether the influence of these 30 is demonstrated by becoming a viral sensation, by taking on the mantles of leadership, or by laying the...
  • Is this philosopher inspiring Trump's cabinet picks?

    The Washington Examiner ^ | December 26, 2016 | Gavin Wax
    It seems President-elect Trump admires not only Scottish golf courses, but also Scottish philosophy, as shown by the coterie of advisers and Cabinet members he's selected for his administration. In the 19th century, Scottish philosopher and historian Thomas Carlyle developed a theory of historiography which he coined "The Great Man Theory." This theory postulated that the process of historical examination is akin to a series of chronological biographies of these so-called "Great Men." These great generals, artists, philosophers, theologians and entrepreneurs were the ones who truly had decisive impacts on society, rather than the other way around. Caesar, Muhammad, Shakespeare,...

    Huma Abedin’s Troubling Saudi Upbringing Which is synonymous with saying “ISIS upbringing." Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. Allegations concerning Huma Abedin’s connections to Islamist groups and actors devoted to taking down America through a subversive jihad is no secret.  But for those in the know about Islam, its goals and methods—and especially the power of indoctrination—her life story is more than enough for concern. Born in the U.S., Huma moved to Saudi Arabia (SA) at the age of two.  There, she likely spent her formative years being indoctrinated in the same Islam that...

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 30/10/16 | Yoni Kempinski
    Sheldon Schorer, a representative of Democrats Abroad Israel, sat down with Arutz Sheva to discuss the decision by FBI director James Comey to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as Secretary of State. Schorer was highly critical of Comey's actions. "It's a gross departure from internal FBI procedures...not to comment on investigations that are current." He also said that FBI policy is "not to make a comment than can influence an election" when the election is less than 60 days away. Schorer agreed that the reemergence of the email scandal would be harmful to...

  • Clinton ally funneled money to wife of FBI agent who oversaw emails

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/23/2016 | JEREMY LOTT
    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an important ally of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, funneled nearly $700,000 in donations and support to the campaign of the spouse of an FBI official who then oversaw Clinton's email investigation. The Virginia governor's office was full of denials about the connection on Sunday. "Any insinuation that his support" for state Senate candidate Dr. Jill McCabe, wife of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, "was tied to anything other than his desire to elect candidates who would help pass his agenda is ridiculous," a spokesman for the governor told the Wall Street Journal. McAuliffe's PAC donated $475,000...

    Now that FOX News is under a new, more liberal management, has it begun to show signs of a drift in reporting. For the second consecutive day, Carl Cameron has been far too critical of Donald Trump. DT said on one occasion that he didn't really know Putin. On another occasion DT said they met briefly in the 60 minutes green room. Cameron makes this a near scandal saying that it's a discrepancy that the Trump team simply must clarify. This is such a petty thing; I expect more from FOX News.

    Carl Bernstein talks the power of the Drudge Report and the influence the eponymous editor had in the Republican primary race during a CNN panel discussion about Roger Ailes and the future of FOX News. Bernstein said FOX has driven Trump's candidacy less than Matt Drudge and called the website "an influence unequalled." "One of the interesting things we've seen in this campaign is, FOX has driven Trump's candidacy less than Matt Drudge," the legendary journalist said Wednesday on CNN. "Drudge is really great new factor in this election in terms of media. He is -- Drudge, that site has...

    A devastating inside look at the dark side of Congress as revealed by one of its own! No wonder Congressman X wants to remain anonymous for fear of retribution. His admissions are deeply disturbing. . . "Most of my colleagues are dishonest career politicians who revel in the power and special-interest money that's lavished upon them." "My main job is to keep my job, to get reelected. It takes precedence over everything." "Voters are incredibly ignorant and know little about our form of government and how it works."

    this story is a deeper question that unnerves everyone — including established, mainstream outlets — in a media ecosystem that's increasingly dependent on Facebook's whims: The company's power is vast, and that power is not always deployed in ways that are transparent and accountable. Mark Zuckerberg has always said he wants to build Facebook into "a utility," and he's arguably succeeded. But utilities, because they're so important, are highly regulated. Facebook is approaching utility-level importance, but it answers to no one — not even, given Zuckerberg's control of the company, its shareholders.

    Two Republican presidential candidates and both Democratic candidates are on Time Magazine's list of The 100 Most Influential People of 2016. The magazine placed them and other notable American politicians from both parties among a list of artists, athletes, world leaders, and celebrities. They are on the list because, according to the magazine, "they each embody a breakthrough: they broke the rules, broke a record, broke the silence, broke the boundaries to reveal what they're capable of." "To expect Donald Trump to conform to the 'norms' of business and politics is like expecting a square peg to fit in a...

    The number two Republican in the Senate charged Thursday that President Obama is "trying to influence the outcome" of the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her tenure at the State Department. "Time and time again, the White House has projected its desired outcome of this investigation to the public, and worse, to those people conducting it," Texas Sen. John Cornyn said on the Senate floor Thursday afternoon. The Senate majority whip has long called for a special counsel to take over the review of Clinton's email practices, but President Obama's latest defense of...

    The release Tuesday by the National Archives of a fresh trove of documents detailing the Clinton administration's dealings with billionaire Donald Trump could become the latest fuel for flame-throwing in an already incendiary 2016 presidential race. ADVERTISEMENT The documents include: a signed copy of Trump's “The Art of the Deal,” delivered to a top aide to then-President Clinton; logs of Trump’s invitations to the Clinton White House; and an entry about a Trump Towers photo-op with the president. The files come at a sensitive time in the Republican presidential race, and could be used by Trump’s top rival Texas Sen....

    To the extent it’s still standing after yesterday, the Stop Trump movement is comforting itself with the world’s biggest lie: that John Kasich is the embodiment of the Republican Party, while Donald Trump is the bastard stepchild. It’s exactly the opposite. It is no longer a question of what the party wants. The voters — remember them? — keep showering Trump and Cruz with Ceausescu-like percentages. The combined vote for Trump and Cruz is a ringing chorus of what this party wants: a wall, deportation, less immigration and no job-killing trade deals. In other words, what the party wants is...

    In fact, despite his attacks on his party’s donor class and establishment, Cruz, the Texas senator who won last week’s Iowa caucuses, appears to have locked down the support of four of the top six donors ― the Wilks family of Cisco, Texas (the No. 1 donor on POLITICO’s list), New York hedge fund tycoon Bob Mercer (No. 2), Texas energy investor Toby Neugebauer (No. 4) and Illinois manufacturing moguls Dick and Liz Uihlein (No. 6) ― but only one other donor on the list.
