    "As a gurantor of this de-escalaltion area with Russia and Jordan, the United States will take firm and appropriate measures in response to Assad regime violations" Heather Nauert of the US State Department speaks late Friday 5/25/2018 With the Syrian regime dropping leaflets in southwestern Syria near the Golan Heights and Jordan urging rebel-jihadist forces to disarm and with the expectation of Syrian government military action in the region, the United States has begun to cry foul. This going into a weekend statement reminds me of what President Trump did earlier this year when he discussed Syria on a Friday...

    Part II of SPYGATE: The 21st Century’s Watergate discussed the timeline of events surrounding the anti-Trump dossier and the collusion against Trump carried out by the Obama administration and its many weapons at its disposal. In this third and final installment, I will talk about how the Mueller investigation has crossed the legal line and how the campaign to forcibly remove Trump from office is still in full effect today. Steven Calabresi, former special assistant to Attorney General Edwin Meese and law clerk to Justice Antonin Scalia wrote a commentary piece in the Wall Street Journal a couple weeks ago...

    U.S. manufacturers are hiring more workers, boosting wages and increasing domestic investments following the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Seventy-two percent of manufacturers are ramping up workers’ wages and benefits, according to a new survey from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). Meanwhile, 77% of survey respondents said they were hiring more workers, while 86% are investing more in plants and equipment. “Manufacturing in America is now rising to new heights, thanks to tax reform, and as a result, manufacturers of all sizes are already investing more, growing more, hiring more and paying more. They are already...

    YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima City Councilwoman Holly Cousens is ready for Hadong County, South Korea, to become Yakima’s sister city. That sentiment comes after a weeklong trip to Hadong, during which she analyzed the city’s agriculture and education as well as possible cultural and emotional ties. The trip was completely funded by Hadong. “Today, more than ever, the concept of a sister city is not only endearing in that it brings communities together,” she said. “But it also stands as a beacon of hope and peace in a time I feel we need it the most.” Any action to form...

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) made shocking and outrageous claims against special counsel Robert Mueller, including the accusation that he had protected radical Islamists “his whole career.” In in 30 minute long interview with Judicial Watch published Thursday, Gohmert made extensive accusations against Mueller. “This is consistent with Mueller,” he said, “he has protected radical Islamists his whole career, with the FBI, and even as special counsel but, uhm, 911, we knew who, we found out who the perpetrators were, there were no question, that was radical Islam.” “And immediately after that, the anthrax scare occurred, and he was looking for...

    There is no question that the left aims at changing America in the worst possible way but their efforts would go largely unnoticed if it not for a sympathetic and like-minded media The United States of America is by far the most powerful nation on planet earth spending about as much on defense as the entire rest of the world. According to a report on globalization from Credit Suisse, the US has maintained its position as the world’s strongest military. As an example, although Russia has the most substantial number of tanks approx. 15,000 with the US coming in at...

    NBC, a mainstream media ally of the government intelligence conspiracy to undermine the Trump campaign and administration, has labeled the president’s characterization of this covert operation as “spying” as FALSE. In an interview on The View, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper explained that “we weren’t spying on Trump. We were spying on the Russians.” “Look it’s not as if the Obama Administration’s practice of using covert methods to gather useful intelligence from a political campaign was unprecedented,” Clapper said. “LBJ used federal agents to secretly intercept communications inside the Goldwater campaign. And, of course, Nixon had his henchmen...
  • SPYGATE:The 21st Century’s Watergate, Part2, A Timeline of Collusion Against Trump from 2015 to 2016

    IWB ^ | Bob Shanahan
    As I covered in Part I of SPYGATE: The 21st Century’s Watergate, the Obama administration oversaw a widespread wiretapping scheme and implemented a propaganda narrative of Trump colluding with Russia to win the presidential election in 2016. They then attempted to cover it up after Trump was elected president by smearing him with unfounded connections to Russia. This illegal action would be highlighted and heralded as one of the most damaging and dangerous political scandals in American history if this was a Republican acting against a Democrat. Sadly, it is only being covered in your conservative and alternative news sites...

    Hat Tip: karinsue 1 I was sitting at a long stop light yesterday, thinking about what I would do to keep busy during retirement, minding my own business and patiently waiting for the light to turn green, even though there was no on-coming traffic. An old Nissan full of bearded, young, loud Muslims, shouting Anti-American slogans, with a half-burned American Flag duct-taped on the trunk of their car and a "Remember 9-11" slogan spray painted on the side, stopped next to me. Suddenly they yelled, "Allah Akbar! Praise Allah! Death to America" and took off before the light changed. Out...

The celebratory sound of Barack and Michelle Obama hitting Netflix pay-dirt. Until Jan. 20, 2017 they were just U.S. President and First Lady where they got to torment half of the masses they were elected to serve for eight, miserable, long years.

Isn’t there a plane crash or school shooting we can report on instead? – As we noted in Friday morning’s Campaign Update, Thursday was a day of anti-American celebration in the nation’s fake news media and among Democrat officials everywhere, as they all thought that President Trump’s letter “cancelling” the scheduled June 12 summit meeting with the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea had produced a victory...

    NFL players and BLM will be getting together this weekend to demand social justice. Now that they can no longer take a knee during the National Anthem they will be pursuing new ways to display their grievances against America’s racism and protest police brutality. (I’d suggest they consult George Soros as he seems to know how to accomplish his social justice goals.)  As NFL players consider new ways to protest, the rest of the country will be flying, waving and otherwise displaying the flag the thugs seem so bent on disrespecting. The flag that so many gave their all for.As...

    Democrats have yet to reach a consensus on what message might resonate most favorably with voters this Fall. Citing a poll finding that 60% of voters don't believe the Mueller probe has uncovered any crimes, Democratic strategist Jesse Ferguson suggested that "we need to focus our message on the successes of the investigation. Granted, there hasn't yet been any evidence of Russian collusion, but several people have been indicted for other crimes." Almost all of these "other crimes" involve lying to federal agents. The one seemingly significant crime not in this category is the charge that Paul Manafort engaged in...

    Conservatives seemingly got a victory this week when the NFL decided to change its policy regarding the national anthem. The NFL decided that players would be allowed to stay in the locker room while the national anthem plays, but the players and personnel that stay on the field will be required to stand for the anthem. President Trump reaffirmed his support for the decision by saying that players who don’t stand for the national anthem maybe “shouldn’t be in the country.” Leftists were outraged. This is a lot of controversy for such a small gesture, but I feel that both...

    After three months of saber-rattling on the trade front – including the implementation of high duties on imported steel and aluminum, and threats of similarly high tariffs on a host of business and consumer products both from and to China – the dust appears to have settled for a while, with an announcement that China will work to import more from the USA, and a tentative agreement that a trade war would be bad for everybody. Within days, there were fresh discussions of new tariffs on other products that hadn’t been discussed previously - like cars and trucks – also...

    Unless we assume the FBI went completely rogue, it is inconceivable that the deployments of personnel to spy on the Trump campaign and make provocative contact with its lesser members could have occurred without the full knowledge and control of the occupants of the Oval Office. Obama may claim a scandal-free administration but after Fast and Furious, the targeting of the Tea Party by the IRS, the Benghazi cover-up, Hillary’s emails, to name a few, but spygate is just the latest. I use the plural “occupants” because Barack Hussein Obama many have been nominally the President of the United States,...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn.--Country singer Trace Adkins will perform prior to President Donald Trump's appearance on stage during his visit to Nashville on Tuesday. Trump will be in town stumping for Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who is running for Senate. Blackburn hopes to take the seat currently filled by Senator Bob Corker. Adkins will perform before Trump takes the stage at Nashville's Municipal Auditorium for the rally. Adkins is no stranger to the president, appearing on the Celebrity Apprentice in 2008.
