  • Court: Obama Admin Dodged State Laws To Get Illegal Minors Abortions

    Federalist ^ | October 18, 2018 | Margot Cleveland
    Last week, a federal judge in California dismissed a lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union had filed in 2016 challenging the government’s award of grants to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to provide services to unaccompanied minor illegal aliens and trafficking victims. In the lawsuit, the ACLU argued the grants violated the Establishment Clause because the Department of Health and Human Services allowed the Catholic organization (and its sub-grantees) to deny girls and women in their care contraceptives and abortion. The court rejected the ACLU’s Establishment Clause claim in a methodical 34-page opinion, explaining that the federal funds...
  • Trump's approval rating among military slips; lowest among Army (Misleading headline)

    The Birmingham News ^ | October 18, 2018 | Leada Gore
    President Donald Trump's approval rating among members of the military has slipped slightly since he took office two years ago, according to a poll by Military Times. Trump's most recent overall approval rating was 43.8 percent, down from 46.1 percent in 2016. His disapproval rating was 43.1 percent, up from 37 percent two years ago. Troops overwhelmingly support Trump's handling of military issues over that of former President Barack Obama, however. More than 60 percent said they believe the military is in better shape now than under Obama and nearly the same number have a favorable view of Trump's handling...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden says President Donald Trump may not “know what he’s doing” and coddles dictators. The potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told CBS “This Morning” Thursday he’s concerned Trump “seems to have a love affair with autocrats” and “coddles” dictators, including North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, Russia’s Vladimir Putin and the Saudi ruling family. […] Biden said he hopes Democrats don’t pursue Trump’s impeachment if the party takes over the House, saying, “I don’t think there’s a basis for doing that right now.” …

    Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore believes “beloved Americans” such as actor Tom Hanks or Michelle Obama are some of the few possible candidates who could defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. In an interview with Good Morning Britain‘s Piers Morgan, Michael Moore said that the Democratic Party needs to put forward a candidate with widespread appeal. “Democrats need to run a beloved American, someone people want to vote for,” Moore explained. “I’ve said for years that Oprah should run. I’ve asked Tom Hanks twice to run.” “Who doesn’t like Tom Hanks? Nobody, right? Tom Hanks would win,”...

    Things get curiouser and curiouser in the possible abduction and murder of Washington Post Muslim Brotherhood reporter. Here are a few questions I still have about the whole situation: Is Khashoggi really dead? If so, who dunnit, and if it was the Saudis, why did it require a 15 man assassin team? Why did the WaPo have a Muslim Brotherhood reporter on staff? Are we to believe our Turkish ‘allies’ or our Saudi ‘allies’? Who’s trying to start WWIII? And while the answers may be interesting they won’t help us choose sides. As Spengler points out, there are no good...
  • A Movie Tribute to the 1980’s When Ronald Reagan Ran America

    metallicman ^ | 15OCT18 | Editorial staff
    For eight years, from 1981 until 1989, the United States had one of the greatest Presidents running the nation; Ronald Reagan. Of course, the media hated him. Of course, subsequent politicians and their media sycophants have rewrote the narrative, turning the amazing decade into one of “racism”, inequality, and a trampling of rights. What a crock of ********. It was no such thing. You can tell simply by looking at pop culture from that time. If everyone was sad, unhappy, unemployed and suffering, the pop culture would reflect it. Just like pop culture reflected World War II, and the 1950’s....

    Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said President Trump must respond with more than “just words” if Saudi Arabia is found to be behind the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi or it would undermine the United States’ reputation as a champion of human rights. “I’m glad the president didn’t tie his hands in terms of exactly what we are going to do. But it needs to be very strong and meaningful, it can’t be symbolic, it can’t just be words,” the Florida lawmaker said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Trump has threatened “severe consequences” against Saudi Arabia but hasn’t gone...

    Been working on a response for a Quora query, You are a devout Bible-fundamental Jesus believer. Or devout Catholic or Mormon. Why do you and your religious principles support and defend President Trump? Otherwise, why wouldn't you? I only worked on what the alternative to Trump would mean so far. Any suggestions for this? "Devout Bible-fundamental Jesus believer" best fits evangelicals, and even considering the alternative from that overall perspective should suffice for now, as illustrated by this (imperfect) analogy: You are at a port along with many other people, trying to continue on a long journey to get to...

    A City Council committee took the first step Thursday toward approving legislation that outlines how the Obama Foundation can use Jackson Park and the Obama Presidential Center once it is built. And for the first time, the committee revealed language in the legislation that seeks to protect current homeowners and residents who live closest to the selected site. As part of their agreement, which the panel approved unanimously, the city will monitor property values and other indicators of demographic changes near the center site. If there are dramatic changes, the city will implement measures to keep residents in their homes,...

    (this story is 1 year old) Evidence shows that John Roberts, chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, was “hacked” by a Deep State surveillance operation overseen by Obama administration CIA director John Brennan and Obama director of national intelligence James Clapper. Roberts, the Bush appointee who made the decisive vote to uphold the constitutionality of Obamacare before the 2012 election, was allegedly the victim of the same Deep State surveillance program that spied on President Donald Trump.

    From no later than Monday, 27 June 2016, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, CIA Director John Brennan, Greg Vogle—director of the CIA’s dirty National Clandestine Service—and FBI Director James Comey all had copies of the first “dossier” memo from Christopher Steele, which contained the “golden showers” filth about Donald Trump, and which had been written one week earlier, on Monday, 20 June 2016. And that brings us back to something else that Cornikoff slipped up (badly) and said in their book, as quoted earlier: “When the first Steele memo arrived in FBI headquarters that same week [the...

    When First Lady Melania Trump said in an interview during her African trip that she “could say I'm the most bullied person on the world,” or at least “one of them, if you really see what people are saying about me,” the media guffawed: what would she know about bullying, being a privileged white woman and all? Of course the media immediately validated her claims by criticizing everything she said - and wore - during her trip: On Saturday, Twitter users compared Melania’s Egypt outfit — a Ralph Lauren jacket, wide-leg pants, and a Chanel blouse — to the clothing...

    Obama Had a Secret Plan in Case Trump Rejected 2016 Election Results By Mattathias Schwartz In October 2016, senior staff in the Obama White House discussed what they should do if Hillary Clinton won the November election and Donald Trump refused to accept the result as legitimate. They had cause to be worried. At that time, Trump had openly speculated that the election might be “rigged.” During his final debate with Clinton on October 19, he said that his opponent “should never have been allowed to run” and declined to answer the question of whether he would concede. “I’ll keep...

    Barack Obama said, and I quote, "Elections have consequences.". Those are the words out of the man's own mouth. And, he effected his agenda. Americans responded. We voted. We want OUR agenda effected. But wait, Democrats don't believe in the the voting procedure established in this country anymore. Suddenly, the Presidential elections are not valid...suddenly, the nomination and selection of a Supreme Court justice is not valid...suddenly, but not so suddenly, we have an attempted coup taking place and the Justice Department is not doing a damn thing about it (excuse my language). This has gone too far. We have...
  • Obama Administration collaboration with Russia

    10/10/2018 1:35:42 AM PDT · by jeffilton · 2 replies
    The stove-piping of the now infamous Fusion GPS dossier into a US FISA national security court seems to be a fatal blunder. Fusion GPS, through collaboration with its Russian intelligence contacts, assembled the dossier. Fusion GPS had previously been employed by the FBI but had been fired due to their practice of leaking to the media. Through DoJ official Bruce Ohr and other back channels, the dossier was channeled back into the government and presented as legitimate evidence before a FISA court to obtain surveillance warrants for Carter Page. Even though the assembly of the dossier was conducted through a...

    Hypocrisy is one of the ways leftist Democrats can feel superior to people who are superior to them Dr. Christine Blasey Ford may have suffered a sexual attacked at some point in her life, but the evidence did not point to Brett Kavanaugh as the perpetrator of that crime. There was, however, a horrifying reality exposed during the disgraceful Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings. In today’s society, because a monopolistic leftist propaganda machine serves as the country’s information source, any accusation made by any one of the millions of leftist radicals can destroy a conservative member of Congress, or in...
