    Remember the date of March 13, 2017. It was the day President Trump was guaranteed his re-election and Republican congressional gains in 2018 and 2020. It's not complicated. Follow along. The Congressional Budget Office released its study of Trump and Paul Ryan's plan to repeal Obamacare and begin to reform our healthcare system. It had many numbers. Only two mattered: taxes and spending. CBO announced that the repeal bill reduces taxes by almost $900 billion and reduces federal spending by $1.2 trillion over the next decade. This reduces deficit spending by $300 billion over the next 10 years. Thus the...

    A 15-year-old schoolgirl was allegedly groped and raped by two North African migrants on the commuter train from Milan to Mortara Thursday afternoon. On Saturday morning, the girl was hospitalized with multiple bruises, a concussion and a broken rib, and police have launched a search for the assailants accused of aggravated assault and sexual assault. According to police reports, after school—around 4:00pm—the girl went to the Milan station of Porta Genova to catch the local commuter train home, sitting with a friend in the last carriage. When the friend got off the train at an earlier stop, the girl was...
  • Maher: Obama’s Dishonesty Was ‘Within the Normal Parameters’ – Trump’s Isn’t

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated that untrue statements by President Obama were “within the normal parameters” while President Trump’s aren’t. Maher began by saying, “We just can’t have a country ruled by what the president believes.” Later on, Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist stated, “Obama said, repeatedly on the campaign, not once in a tweet, but again and again and again in speeches, that he was never going to raise taxes on anyone who earned less than $250,000 a year. That lasted 16 days, before he did.” Maher responded, “Okay, but that’s...

    Paul Ryan is OWNED by a powerful DC lobbyist/immigration lawyer. Ryan was hand picked and mentored to push his agenda. His name is Cesar Conda. He brought Ryan to DC. He also groomed and picked one Marco Rubio acting as his chief of staff and more recently running Rubio's Florida PAC, and IMO, his campaign. Cesar Conda and his biggest ally, Grover Norquist have an agenda. It is to control the Republican party and the candidates who run in these elections who will implement the policies they want in place to profit their various NON profit scams. They are not...
  • Gov. Chris Christie is touting Grover Norquist's support of 23-cent-per-gallon gas tax hike

    TRENTON, New Jersey — Republican Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday touted an anti-tax crusader's endorsement of a proposed 23-cent- per-gallon gasoline tax hike along with a sales tax cut, sweeping aside objections raised by Democratic leaders in the state Senate and voicing confidence that the measure would be passed in that chamber. Christie all but dared lawmakers not to act on his plan during a statehouse news conference, a day after the Assembly passed the plan to pay for a $2 billion a year transportation trust fund for eight years. The fund runs out of borrowing authority Friday, and Christie's...

    Meet the strange bedfellows against vaping: drug and tobacco companies, health advocates and Democratic lawmakers. A convergence of interests among these four lies behind the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) announcement on May 5 that e-cigarettes will be regulated as rigorously as tobacco beginning in August. Vaping advocates say the cost of FDA approvals will bankrupt an industry that might vastly improve public health. This spring, a major study from the Royal College of Physicians, the British equivalent of the Office of the Surgeon General, found e-cigarettes to be 95 percent less harmful than cigarettes.

    The day after the Iowa caucuses, I watched as the Shakespearean drama underlying this year’s Republican race — a classic tale of friendship and betrayal — played out its final act on either edge of New Hampshire. In Keene, close to the Vermont border, I joined the small group of reporters who came to hear Jeb Bush speak to a polite audience of workers at a grocery wholesaler. Bush was, as ever, reasoned and respectful, but he seemed a little frustrated as he compared his old Florida protégé to President Obama. Marco Rubio is “gifted as a politician, an unbelievable...

    The Rubio Deception: Truth v Lies The Immigration bill is constructed to deceive the public. And, does a good job of creating the false illusion of greater security. But Rubio’s claim of enforcement ‘triggers’ is a dishonest argument. His amnesty scheme is chock full of deception with many behind the scene maneuvers all designed to obfuscate truth. The bill makes America less safe, not more. Rubio’s scheme allows illegal aliens to be legalized immediately. All at a huge cost to the US taxpayer [Note] and sovereignty of our nation. Like Obamacare, the legislation was crafted behind closed doors with pro-amnesty...

Representatives of some 40 conservative groups plan to meet Wednesday at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in the Washington suburb of McLean, Virginia, where they will air their fears of having the nomination process hijacked by establishment Republicans and wrestle over different strategies to turn the...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The founder of the organization that sponsored the Mohammad cartoon contest in Garland, TX, has long been in the news as an incendiary spokeswoman for anti-Islamic causes. Pamela Geller is the founder of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, an organization also known as Stop Islamization of America, which was formed in 2009 to oppose the building of a mosque and community center near the site of the Sept. 11 terror attacks. That controversy propelled Geller into the national spotlight. AFDI has been classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Geller, who is Jewish, has been denounced...

    Several prominent Republicans are trying to push immigration restrictionist groups to the fringe of the debate by challenging their conservative credentials and attacking their stance on population control, The Washington Post reports. GOP heavyweights like Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and power broker Grover Norquist are backing an effort to inform conservatives about the history of groups like the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), NumbersUSA and the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). (SNIP) Those organizations are now the leading conservative voices against immigration, both legal and illegal, and have received the endorsement of Republicans like Senators Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and...

    The NRA announced Grover Norquist’s re-election to the NRA Board of Directors on April 11 — but on Tuesday, the organization confirmed that Norquist has “voluntarily suspended” himself from NRA board activities. Breitbart News spoke with an NRA spokesman who said that Norquist has indeed distanced himself from the board. The spokesman confirmed that “Grover Norquist has voluntarily suspended activities with the NRA Board of Directors as he awaits the outcome of an investigation into allegations against him.” Breitbart News has previously reported that those allegations were leveled by Glenn Beck and Center for Security Policy president Frank Gaffney, both...

    Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, appeared on The Glenn Beck Program Thursday to defend himself against accusations that he is an “agent of influence” for radical Islamists. Norquist set up the Islamic Free Market Institute roughly 20 years ago, and through the organization, Beck said, he crossed paths with a number of controversial figures, including two now-imprisoned terrorists. “When we set up the Islamic Free Market Institute in the mid-nineties it was because I had seen in Afghanistan and Pakistan during the end of the war against the Soviet Union, this radical strain of anti-Americanism and...

    Paul Sperry, author of the new book, Infiltration, in an interview calls Grover Norquist "an agent of influence for Islamists in Washington." When asked by FrontPageMag.com why a Republican anti-tax lobbyist should so passionately promote Islamist causes, Sperry implied that Norquist has converted to Islam: "He's marrying a Muslim, and when I asked Norquist if he himself has converted to Islam, he brushed the question off as too 'personal.'" As Lawrence Auster comments on this exchange, "Clearly, if Norquist hadn't converted to Islam, or weren't in the process of doing so, he would simply have answered no." Indeed, Norquist married...

    I'm listening right now 9 AM/3/26. Norquist backed out of Beck's Show. Beck had offered to let Norquist answer Beck's allegations regarding Norquist's ties to Muslim Brotherhood. Beck said that in his research, he's uncovered donations to Norquist's foundation from Rove. Beck said that this investigation reminds him of the early days of his Van Jones investigation.
