    Video released on Monday by James O’Keefe of Project Veritas purports to show a group of left wing activists plotting to use butyric acid stink bombs to disrupt a pro-Donald Trump inauguration event. The edited video shows three members of the D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition discussing releasing stink bombs in the HVAC system of the National Press Club, where a pro-Trump event dubbed Deploraball will be held on Thursday. The coalition is part of a network of left wing groups that plan to disrupt various Trump inauguration events. A group operating with the hashtag #DisruptJ20 plans to destroy property, carry out...

    Sessions, Tillerson, Pompeo, Mattis testify before Senate Trump to CNN: “You are fake news!” LIVE Saturday (1/14) 8 AM EST Trump’s future cabinet is cruising through Senate confirmation. And with the world in the state that it is, not a moment too soon. Terrorism once again strikes Israel in the form of a truck attack. Sound familiar? Of course, the widow of the terrorist is already collecting a pension courtesy of the Palestinian Authority. Yet these people allegedly want peace? In Hungary, the Orban government takes the dramatic step of targeting George Soros’s network of NGOs. Good for them –...

    Alexander Soros, the son of liberal billionaire George Soros who acts as the managing partner for Soros Brothers Investments, has quietly emerged as a major donor to Democratic campaigns and causes. Alexander has remained relatively unknown in the world of political giving thanks to his father garnering a bulk of the family’s attention. However, Alexander has stepped up his political contributions even as his father continued to pour tens of millions into the coffers of Democratic campaigns and political action committees. Alexander gave more than $4.5 million to Democratic campaign committees and political action committees in 2016, according to campaign...

    Human Rights Watch has taken Trump derangement syndrome to new heights with the release of its annual report that lists the United States of America as a human rights abuser on par with China, Egypt, and Syria. Their reason? Donald Trump's rhetoric during the recent presidential campaign. Trump has yet to take office and the Soros-funded HRW is already condemning the U.S. for policies that have yet to be enacted. The Daily Caller: As The New York Times notes, the designation of the U.S. as a major human rights abuser marks a first for HRW in the 27 years it...

    The Obama departure from the Oval Office is going as expected. Landmines have been laid, grenades have been jettisoned, lies have been repeated, and  “I’m the greatest President in history and I’m not going anywhere,” has been proclaimed.  Bloating of the dangerously large government bureaucracy with entrenched operatives is getting some final bloating gas to ensure a protraction of the socialist mindset which will make a reversal all but impossible. Soros, Obama, Jarrett and their acolytes in media and Congress are immersed in witlessly abusing hyperbolic rhetoric.

    President-elect Trump won't get any help from the State Department in implementing Israeli-relation policies opposed by President Obama before his inauguration. "The short answer is no," State Department spokesman John Kirby told reporters. "You have one president at a time." Obama's team invoked that axiom to justify high-profile foreign policy actions in recent weeks, notably his decisions to sanction Russia over the election year cyberattacks and to allow the United Nations Security Council to condemn Israeli settlement construction. Kirby's statement extended that principle to barring any aid in helping the Trump team prepare to move the United States embassy to...

    At the head of every nefarious syndicate, there is a villain; and at the head of the tangled web of leftist non-profit organizations, Democrat political campaigns, and progressive social causes -- funded by the same shadowy money -- there is George Soros. For the last half-century, George Soros has used the power of his money, his financial acumen, and at times legally questionable tactics, to build a global financial empire the value of which is estimated at nearly $25 billion. With this virtually unlimited bankroll, Soros has become something of a puppet master in both international markets and political arenas,...

It also cites support for pro-abortion efforts in Mexico, Zambia, Nigeria, and Tanzania, and other parts of Latin America and...

But he said that those trends will help to energize leaders who have consolidated power, like Russian President Vladimir Putin. “I am confident that democracy will prove resilient in the U.S. Its Constitution and institutions, including the fourth estate, are strong enough to resist the excesses of the executive branch, thus preventing a would-be dictator from becoming an actual one,” Soros wrote.

    To protect Americans against “fake” news, Facebook will now use filters so that only “reputable” articles can appear at the top of users’ trending news stories. And Facebook is going to media fact checkers for help (initially ABC News, The Associated Press, FactCheck.org, Politifact and Snopes). But guess what? These fact checkers have their own biases — usually the same liberal biases that we see in the rest of the mainstream media. Before the 1990s, the mainstream media had a monopoly on the news. Then came the rise of talk radio, Fox News, and the internet. This was a wonderful...

    Uncovered financial statements expose Media Matters. The organization received $1,052,500 in sublet rental income from 2010 to 2014, but failed to report this income to the IRS. Instead, key players pocketed this money for their own personal use. David Brock, recently described by Politico as “the Democrats’ dark-arts master,” has some explaining to do. His organization, Media Matters for America, has failed to report to the IRS over $1 million in sublet rental income from 2010 to 2014. David Brock and his allies are most likely pocketing that money for themselves. Media Matters shares office space with 13 separate organizations...

    The Green Party-backed push for a recount of Pennsylvania's presidential election results will get its day in federal court. U.S. District Judge Paul S. Diamond on Tuesday ordered a Friday hearing to consider the party's request for a forensic examination of voting machines used across the state and a statewide recount of paper ballots. The proceeding will take place just five days before the Dec. 13 federal deadline for the state to certify its votes, raising questions over whether that would leave enough time for a thorough examination should the judge allow the recount to proceed. Former Green Party presidential...

    Michigan will become the second state to conduct a recount of ballot casts during the 2016 presidential election. U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith early Monday morning issued an order for Michigan election officials to begin counting ballots starting at noon. The ruling follows a request from Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein after a razor-thin margin made the state the last to be called in the November election. President-elect Donald Trump ended up winning Michigan's 16 electoral votes by just 0.2 percentage points, or just under 10,000 votes out of over 5.5 million cast. "It is inexcusable for Stein to...

    US Green Party candidate Jill Stein said her campaign will appeal to a federal court on Monday to seek a state-wide vote recount in Pennsylvania, hours after dropping a lawsuit in a local court, saying the cost of the lawsuit was too high. "Make no mistake - the Stein campaign will continue to fight for a state-wide recount in Pennsylvania. We are committed to this fight to protect the civil and voting rights of all Americans," Jonathan Abady, the lead counsel for Jill Stein's recount bid, said in a statement on Sunday. "The barriers to verifying the vote in Pennsylvania...

    New Delhi: A petition urging the Electoral College to reject Donald Trump as the next President of the United States has become the most popular in the history of Change.org, a site that mobilizes support for petitions through e-signatures. Over 4.6 million people have signed the petition titled "Make Hillary Clinton President", which calls on the Electoral College to elect the Democratic presidential candidate over Trump when it officially votes on December 19. The petition argues that since Clinton won the popular vote in the November 8 election by a margin of 2 million ballots, she should be the President....

    In anticipation of a Trump loss, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts professed that anything other than graceful acceptance of the loss would “threaten democracy.”  But now that Trump has won, the left has hypocritically become unhinged.  After violent protests, petitions to eradicate the electoral college, and coddling college age students to miss class, delay exams and obtain psychotherapy to deal with the “trauma” of the election results, liberal political elites are in fear that the left will at last, calm down and accept the results.  They cannot accept such complacency.   Democrats got defeated in a sweep across the nation,...

    Green Party candidate Jill Stein Tuesday flatly denied billionaire George Soros is behind her quest for ballot recounts, saying that even if he would happen to donate money toward the effort, it would be returned. "Our donors will all be disclosed," Stein told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" co-host Martha McCallum. "All of the 140,000 of them last I checked. The average donation is $45. Wherever the voters are coming from, these are regular people throwing in small donations so that we can have a government that is about us everyday people. There is not some giant thunder here." "Are you...

    President-elect Donald Trump is considering Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn for a senior administration job, possibly as director of the Office of Management and Budget, several sources close to the situation said on Wednesday. People familiar with the matter say Cohn's meeting with Trump on Tuesday included talks about a potential job in the new administration, possibly to run OMB, a sprawling office that will handle much of Trump's budget policy after he takes office in January. Cohn, who is friendly with Republicans and Democrats in Washington, is a longtime commodities trader who became Goldman's president and co-chief operating officer...
