    Several days ago, one of my arch nemesis oldfartrants, a senile old hippie bum from West LA who has a YouTube channel advocating socialism has now called for the overthrow of Donald Trump. This, after spending nearly a decade referring to Conservatives as traitors and opponents of Barack Obama as seditionists. He attacks Trump comparing him to Hitler and attacking other conservatives such as Ron Paul, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Sarah Palin and so on. Yet now its not treason anymore to be in dissent, its no longer treason to want to overthrow an elected official like Trump or...

    The 2013-2014 round of Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations failed because the Palestinian Authority (PA) responded to each Israeli concession with new demands and the Obama administration kept taking the Palestinians’ side, according to a veteran Israeli negotiator. Brigadier-General (ret.) Michael Herzog, a member of various Israeli negotiating teams since 1993, disclosed previously unknown details about the peace talks in an essay for the American Interest on February 27. Herzog disputed claims by former State Department envoy Martin Indyk that Israeli housing construction was the main reason the talks failed. “I doubt that even a full settlement freeze would have salvaged these...

    Speaking truth to power isn't allowed in Sacramento A California lawmaker who fled Communist Vietnam as a child decided to tell the truth about the late former state senator Tom Hayden and his treasonable behavior during the Vietnam War. Hayden died Oct. 23 at 76 after a lifetime of seditious, anti-American behavior, including collaborating with America’s enemies during wartime. California state senator Janet Nguyen’s (R-Garden Grove) attempt to speak truth to power was cut short by Hayden’s allies in the Democrat-dominated California legislature who objected to her setting the record straight about Hayden.

    Former House Speaker John Boehner made a surprising prediction on Thursday: Republicans won't "repeal and replace" Obamacare, a signature campaign pledge for years. "[Congressional Republicans are] going to fix Obamacare – I shouldn't call it repeal-and-replace, because it's not going to happen," Boehner told an Orlando health care conference, Politico reported. "I started laughing… Republicans never, ever agree on health care," the former speaker continued. "Most of the framework of the Affordable Care Act… that's going to be there," Boehner said, using the formal name for Obamacare.

    Arizona Senator John McCain is a very popular figure with the mainstream media. (I bet that’s a sentence you never thought you’d read.) The latest reason for this newly emerging love affair between the press and the decorated war hero is his response to the speech given by President Trump during his rally in Florida yesterday. Following the brief but raucous event, McCain was ushered out to give the media his own take on the speech, during which he invoked the image of a “dictator” when discussing the president’s critique of political journalism.

    Chelsea Manning saw injustice and stood up for what’s right. Now, she’s serving a 35 year sentence in an all-male military prison. She’s been systematically abused by the U.S. government, held in conditions that the UN considers to be torture, and has attempted suicide twice during her 7 years behind bars. But now there’s hope. NBC reports that she is on President Obama’s “short list” for commutation. The news has sparked a groundswell of support for Chelsea online. Hundreds of thousands of people have already taken action to support her, but now the message is simpler than ever. But now...

    Secretary of State John Kerry is participating in a French-hosted conference on Mideast peace less than a week before the end of the administration to ensure U.S. views are heard, but with no “intent to in any way box in the incoming administration,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Thursday. At the same time, however, Toner declined to say whether Kerry would act to ensure that a communique coming out of Sunday’s conference does not call on the Trump administration to reconsider a campaign pledge to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. French officials have suggested that the...

    US Secretary of State John Kerry called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Sunday from the Paris peace conference, promising to prevent any followup action to a resolution set to be drawn up on Sunday, either at the confab itself or at the United Nations Security Council. After a month of chilly ties between Washington and Jerusalem, Kerry updated Netanyahu about the steps he was taking to “soften” the text of the final communique, which is expected to be issued by the conference participants later Sunday.

    CA MAU, Vietnam — It could have been 1969 again as Secretary of State John F. Kerry stood on the bow of the small boat chugging up the Bay Hap River on Saturday, the wind billowing his sleeves and his eyes darting left and right toward banks shrouded in dark foliage. As a young Navy lieutenant, Kerry commanded a Swift boat along this stretch of churning brown waters in the middle of a free-fire zone. Here, he earned a Silver Star for his heroics when he leapt ashore after an ambush to pursue a fleeing Viet Cong with a grenade...

    TEL AVIV – In a shameful display of rogue diplomacy, 72 countries – minus Israel – are set to attend a Middle East “peace” conference in Paris on Sunday widely expected to set the parameters for a future Palestinian state. Fresh from his 70-minute speech two weeks ago largely singling out Israel for condemnation, lame-duck Secretary of State John Kerry will represent the U.S. at the Mideast confab. There, Kerry is slated to represent the Obama administration in crafting a “consensus” document on an Israeli-Palestinian deal. This after a U.S. abstention last month allowed the passage of a United Nations...

    Former Secretary of State James Baker on Sunday warned that President-elect Donald Trump’s new administration “cannot be Israel’s lawyer” if it expects to successfully broker peace in the Arab/Israeli conflict. In an interview aired Sunday on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS, Baker said he hopes Trump “will immerse himself” in the issue of peace in the Middle East because “it takes leadership at the very top of America’s government if that’s got any chance of succeeding.” […] Baker said he doesn’t know Trump’s choice of David Friedman as ambassador to Israel, but does not agree with annexing the West Bank or...

    But Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert revealed Ryan pledged to him he would not to move on either of those fronts. Breitbart reports: “House Speaker Paul Ryan and I had two substantive private discussions on the legislative agenda for the 115th Congress and came to an understanding,” Gohmert told Breitbart News. One Ryan promise that won his vote, said Gohmert, was Ryan’s support for the Hastert Rule, which forbids the House Republican leadership from holding votes on bills that are not supported by the majority of the House Republican Conference. That rules prevents the GOP leadership from quietly working with Democratic...
