    Melania Trump, 47, is one of the most famous women in the world thanks to her husband Donald winning his bid for President of the United States last year - and being inaugurated into the position in January. Former-model Melania has been by his side every step of the way. But back in 2011 when the mother-of-one was on the promotional trail for her QVC jewellery collection she admitted she enjoyed some time to herself during her hectic schedule - and husband Donald was supportive of this. Speaking to Sherrina Navani, of the Mommy Helper Show, Melania revealed she enjoyed...
  • Don’t Let The Muscles Fool You – Paul Ryan Is Actually A Big Wimp When It Comes To Antifa

    Remember when we used to have such high hopes for Paul Ryan? Back in 2012, we cheered Mitt Romney for picking him as his running mate. Yay! Paul Ryan was bringing some much-needed conservative bona fides to the ticket, all is well. Fast forward five years, and many of us look on in bemusement as the once golden boy becomes more and more of the problem. Take today, for instance. The now Speaker of the House is preparing for a CNN town hall in Racine, Wisconsin, the focus of which will undoubtedly turn to the events last weekend in Charlottesville...
  • COMMENTARY: The good, the bad and the ugly from Saturday’s protests (Boston, Mass.)

    The Rockland Standard ^ | August 20, 2017 | Bradford Randall
    The number of attendees at Saturday’s counter-protest dwarfed those attending a “Free Speech Rally,” which took place on the Parkman Bandstand in Boston Common. Roughly 40,000 counter-protesters showed up to Boston Common, according to estimates, while only a handful of protesters gathered on the bandstand behind a police buffer zone. Many of those attending the “Free Speech Rally” wore clothing supporting President Donald J. Trump, like his “Make America Great Again” hats, and some people walked through the crowd of counter-protesters wearing Trump shirts. Vulgar taunts were directed toward people wearing Trump paraphernalia, but some counter-protesters tried to protect those...

  • Pelosi’s Dad Once Praised ‘The Lives’ Of Robert E. Lee And Stonewall Jackson At Statue Dedication

    The Daily Caller ^ | 8/21/17 | Kerry Picket
    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s father, the late former Baltimore Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., once lauded Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson at a monument dedication ceremony in his city over half a century ago. The statues were torn down by Baltimore authorities last Tuesday after the violent events surrounding the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Va. last week. According to The Baltimore Sun, the statue, first erected in 1948, included a dedication ceremony of prominent city politicians like Pelosi’s father who led the municipality at the time. At the dedication, D’Alesandro said of...

    With the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, the Republican Party controlled the U.S. House, the U.S. Senate, and the presidency. Sensing the beginning of the end to the institution of slavery in the U.S., Democrat-controlled states began to secede from the Union... Tellingly, in their secession declarations, among the list of grievances, virtually every southern state referenced the election of Lincoln and the threat he and his party presented to the institution of slavery. ...The Confederate States of America was formed at the Montgomery Convention in February of 1861. For the southern states—and anyone else in the world paying...

    Leave fools’ paradise to the fools. If you are offered a choice between having your tuition and expenses paid at a top of the line business school, or buying with your own money Mario Puzo’s The Godfather (the book and the movies, Parts One and Two) choose the latter. You’ll find them far more useful than the MBA. Americans are frequently condemned for obliviousness to the lies and depredations of the people who rule them. Much of the condemnation is merited, but the obliviousness is also a vestige of a better time. The best gauge of a society is truth:...

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    The Missouri Senator who said “I hope Trump is assassinated” is facing a major backlash from the Democrat party who believe that either she has really gone way too far, or are protecting their electoral chances for 2018. Leading Dems have said that “She will either resign, or we will make that decision for her.” Under the Missouri Constitution, there is a section that refers to penalties for lawmakers guilty of “contempt and disorderly conduct.” And this certainly falls under that category. But perhaps the worst aspect of this ever increasing omnishambles is that she steadfastly refuses to acknowledge that...

    Antifa is taken very seriously whenever there's any kind of political event and they show up. The quandary comes when we're not seeing them in the field but watch their messaging on social media, especially YouTube and Facebook; platforms that have been targeting what they deem "hate speech". It's easy to see why those platforms haven't removed their content, which is clearly advocating for violence, because those representing Antifa appear to be certifiable morons.

    Terrorism comes in many names. “Antifa” is one of them. – An interesting, though little-noticed, related to the fascist hate group “Antifa” (which ironically is a contraction for ‘Anti-Fascist’) story is developing as a part of the White House on-line petitioning process that was created by the Obama Administration. This petition demands that the Trump Administration formally recognize Antifa as a terrorist organization, which it clearly and unambiguously is. “AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States,” the petition reads in...

    Article V Blog ^ | August 21st 2017 | Rodney Dodsworth
    I am regularly taken aback by those who think our freedoms should depend on the character of those we elect to political office. If such men exist, then a simple assembly of these angels would do for a government. Grant a few hundred virtuous intellectuals the legislative, executive, and judicial power and be done with it. Why not? In fact, if such men exist, why not empower just one man with the three broad functions? To rely on the virtue alone of our rulers, Article V opponents guarantee a nation not of law, but of men and tyranny. Those who...

    There is a pervasive idea doing the rounds in the media (and also stated by Mr. Piers Morgan), that the First Amendment Right to Free Speech should not cover Nazis or sentiments related to racism. But limits of ANY kind are a stepping stone to censorship and tyranny. It verges on the ludicrous to suggest that “free speech applies for all, except fascists” is a measured response. When one group of people (or group of ideas) is forbidden from open speech, it sets a very dangerous precedent. If today, we say that speech from “X “ is banned, then all...

    Evangelical Christian leader Jerry Falwell Jr. defended President Donald Trump's comment that there were "very fine people on both sides" in the Charlottesville protests, saying the president "had information I didn't have" about who participated in the demonstration against removal of a Confederate statue in the Virginia city. "He has inside information that I don't have," Falwell told ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz on "This Week" Sunday. "I don't know if there were historical purists [at the protests] who were trying to preserve some statues. I don't know." The Liberty University president added of the president, "I...

    Producers working with Katie Couric were doused with urine last weekend while covering the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, the famed broadcast journalist revealed Friday. Couric spent a tense 72 hours covering the chaos unfolding in the city near and dear to her heart (she's a University of Virginia alum), and recalled the days' events in an op-ed for National Geographic titled "Being in Charlottesville Broke My Heart. It Also Filled Me With Hope." The former "Today" show host revealed that on Saturday, the first day of the rally, two of her producers were standing on an elevated edge...

    How many historical monuments will be destroyed in America by the total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017? How many will survive? In America, there are 718 politically incorrect Confederate monuments in 31 states. There is where we will find those who wear light brown black uniforms. The “Antifa” would like, as their predecessors from SA (Sturmabteilung, better known as the Brownshirts), to find a warehouse that the followers of the shocked but quite socialist Schicklgruber accidentally stumbled upon. They located a uniform warehouse for the German African Expeditionary Corps during the First World War. Army officials sold a huge...

    So the passing of another week has a new performer showing up to participate in the year-long circus unfortunately known as the Alabama State Department of Education. The new act is headlined by Bryan Taylor, legal counsel to Governor Kay Ivey. He burst onto the stage with great fanfare late on August 17 clutching a letter decreeing that the music must stop and the clowns return to their makeup room. As things now stand, the state board of education has a called meeting set for Aug. 23. But lawyer Taylor, the same guy who recently took to social media to...

    The Charlottesville, VA tragedy is another step in Communism's march to destroy America. By reading the 1963 Communist Goals for the Takeover of America, we understand what is happening in our beloved country. "Discredit the American Founding Fathers, present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the common man," along with "Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history," are two of 45 important Communist goals that the Charlottesville protests advanced in major ways as the Democrat Party's leftist march to destroy the USA gains steam.
