  • The New Boss is Just the Same as the Old Boss? Trump Signs Monster Spending Bill

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    Pelosi and Schumer declared victory on Friday following President Trump’s fake veto, i.e. after The Donald signed a monster spending bill which blows the budget into oblivion. However, Trump promised  this will never happen again after signing the 1.3 trillion dollars omnibus spending bill that was passed by the Republican dominated Congress. The omnibus bill does not address the border wall nor immigration issues. Trump complained that the Congress “created a series of documents that nobody was able to read”, hinting at the 2000+ pages of documents passed by the legislature, with lawmakers having less than 36 hours to read...
  • Vegas Mole Hunted by Rogue FBI Brass; Death Threats Made to True Pundit over Mandalay Bay trunc

    TRUEPUNDIT ^ | 3/23/2018 | ADMIN
    The rogue faction of the FBI — leftover disciples of the Andrew McCabe-school of federal law enforcement — have waged a manhunt to find FBI personnel who are leaking REAL details about the Mandalay Bay massacre to independent news media. You might think the FBI would spend its time running down leads to pinpoint the details of the Las Vegas shooting spree that claimed the lives of 58 people and injured 500 more. Not so. But it is imperative to understand the two FBIs at play in Las Vegas right now, One faction comprises the rank-and-file FBI who are working...

    There are two parts to the anti-Trump conspiracy. The first was to stop him from being elected. The second ongoing part is to take him down. The day before yesterday it was reported that Andrew McCabe, at the request of two democrat Senators, opened a criminal investigation into Jeff Sessions in 2017. Nearly a year before Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired senior FBI official Andrew McCabe for what Sessions called a "lack of candor," McCabe oversaw a federal criminal investigation into whether Sessions lacked candor when testifying before Congress about contacts with Russian operatives, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News....

    The spending bill is an ugly attack on our freedoms. The Republican House and Republican Senate have stabbed us in the back. The Republicans in the Senate have gleefully joined the House in trampling our rights to freedom. Our only hope for keeping our freedom now is a VETO from President Trump. To override his VETO each Chamber of Congress would have to vote 2/3s in the affirmative. This is a tall order and we can make even harder. The Senate surprised many of us. It didn't blink. It passed the monstrosity but with a 65/35 vote. That's one short...

  • BUSH 41': Overseeing The Soviet Nuke Takedown

    OK-He lasted one term and blew it in 92'. Where would those nukes be if Obama or BJ were in charge? The deep state conservatives would have covered for them. As I see it no one notices when the government does it's job and nothing really bad happens. Preventing potential catastrophe is unappreciated and requires vigilance. Peoples memories are too short.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Man, another slow news day – having a hard time finding anything to write about. Lessee here… Down goes McMaster! Down goes McMaster! Down goes McMaster! – General H.R. McMaster, who has run the leaky valve we call the National Security Council (NSC) for the past 13 months, was finally, at long last given his walking papers on Thursday. The move comes after the latest in a long series of major, embarrassing leaks that most likely came from either the General or his staff earlier this week. That leak came when the...

    Cold Fury 'blog ^ | Friday, March 23, 2018 | Mike Hendrix
    In short: The Deep State media game afoot here is to protect the Deep State buddies by slow-rolling out the news that affects them negatively -- and if possible keeping that news from the public and Congress. But any news that can help sabotage the President? That is to be leaked ASAP. The Deep State web is vast, intricate, cohesive, and until recently very well concealed. It encompasses far more than just the federal government itself, and is by no means geographically limited to the DC environs. That all begins to sound like just another nutty conspiracy theory at that...

    For too many years, in too many places, our country has seen acts of gun violence that have resulted in heartbreaking losses. We are all too familiar with them and there is no need to recount them here. Over the same amount of time, we have waited for our grief to turn into action and see our nation adopt common-sense measures that would help prevent firearms from getting into the wrong hands. That action has sadly never come and as the weeks pass after the most recent mass shooting, it appears we are stuck in the same cycle of tragedy...

    A free America demands an open Internet, a secure Internet, an Internet free of political censorship How did we get along before the Internet? Young people today cannot imagine living in a world without electronic devices - a time before fast-paced computers, laptops, and smart phones provided instant connectivity. Their parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents cannot imagine living in a world without automobiles, airplanes, and television - a time of slow-paced letter writing, waiting, and sailing boats. People live in the cultural, physical, and political historical context of their lives. Russian-American philosopher and writer Ayn Rand (1905-1982) sailed the month-long journey...

    Gun Watch ^ | 23 March, 2018 | Dean Weingarten
    Jeanne Ives and Governor Bruce Rauner It isn't often that you see political courage shown in Illinois. Illinois is a deep blue state that has very restrictive gun control laws. Chicago politicians are all to eager to curry favor with the national media and to go-along to get-along with the anti-Second Amendment agenda. Illinois politics is dominated by Chicago. Governor Bruce Rauner went against the flow and the enormous power wielded by the network media. He vetoed an expensive and ineffective bill, SB 1657, designed to make gun sales more difficult in Illinois, at least for small dealers.  From...

    Industrialization, low birth rate. The trends are all there. Meanwhile 3rd world nations have a high birth rate, particularly Muslim nations. When children are a poor persons wealth you will have many. It was not too long ago when farming communities had 10 children on the farm hoping half of them lived. Longer lives are now guaranteed and one doesn't need to work as hard. Can we continue to grow without a higher birth rate as well as live with Islam?

    The Federalist ^ | 3/22/2018 | By David Harsanyi
    Former CIA chief John Brennan is a liar. And he’s not the kind of garden variety dissembler that we see in Washington all the time, either. Rather, Brennan is the kind of man who feels comfortable brazenly misleading the American people about an attack on democracy, and then shamelessly lecturing them about civic decency. You may recall, as director of the CIA, Brennan oversaw an operation of illegal spying on a staffer of the legislative branch of the United States government. At least five agency officials under his watch broke into Senate computer files, viewing drafts of a report on...
  • After Flooding Europe With Migrants, Germany Asks for Institutionalization of Mass Migration

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    German Chancellor Angela Merkel is known in the Muslim community as “the mother of refugees”. Migrants call her ‘Muttie Merkel” (mother Merkel) and are very happy to take selfies with the former communist party apparatchik. The thing about Angela Merkel is that she owns the European Union migrant crisis, after she invited millions of (majority Muslim) so-called refugees (most of them welfare shoppers looking for handouts in progressive countries like Germany or Sweden) to enter the EU, completely disregarding border security and EU law in the process. And now, after the EU was flooded with millions (nobody knows the exact...

    Just my personal request to the FReeper community that we stop posting You Tube videos on here if we can at all avoid it. You Tube hates us and is one of several leftist media outlets that's currently engaged in trying to silence us and deny us a means to organize. We should not be helping them add to their advertising revenue if we can at all avoid it. Thanks for reading. - Megan

    There is nothing that expressly forbids a line-item veto. It is a common business practice. It is time for Trump to just DO IT. Refuse to spend on useless things. Obamacare, for example, is a multi-trillion -dollar failure.

Facebook, which throws a lifeline keeping all Progressives comfortably afloat, is now claiming victimhood for itself. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg finally came out of hiding to address reports that his company had allowed Cambridge Analytica access to data on millions of Facebook users without their knowledge or consent:

    Blowback from the Education Bubble: University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, has proposed dropping 13 majors in the humanities and social sciences — including English, philosophy, history, sociology and political science — while adding programs with “clear career pathways” such as chemical engineering, graphic design, and fire science as a way to address declining enrollment and a multimillion-dollar deficit.I’m all in favor of eliminating curriculums such as “social studies” – or any degree that includes the word “studies” for that matter: women’s studies, gender studies, black studies, race studies, ethnicity studies etc. Gender Studies MajorsIf that’s your area of interest save...

    Fill title: Jeffrey Toobin vs. Dershowitz: Why Have You Been Carrying Water For Trump?; "This Is Not Who You Used To Be" Alan Dershowitz went head to head with former student and CNN contributor Jeffrey Toobin on Wednesday night's Anderson Cooper 360 on his statement that President Trump was correct to say there should have never been a special counsel investigation. Dershowitz's comments received praise from the president in the form of a tweet quoting what he said about the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel and lack of probable cause for collusion, a crime, or obstruction of justice....
