    The Washington TImes ^ | February 7, 2020 | Andrew Blake
    Richard V. Spencer, President Trump’s ousted former Navy secretary, endorsed on Friday the opposing White House campaign of Democratic candidate Michael R. Bloomberg. Mr. Spencer, who was asked to resign in November amid a dispute involving retired Navy SEAL and convicted war criminal Edward R. Gallagher, stumped for Mr. Bloomberg during a campaign event held in Virginia shortly after his support was announced on the candidate’s official website. Speaking near a naval base in Norfolk, Mr. Spencer touted the billionaire media mogul and former New York City mayor for having characteristics crucial to running the country. We need a leader...

    Conservative Review ^ | September 19, 2018 | Michelle Malkin
    I have a message for virtue-signaling men who’ve rushed to embrace #MeToo operatives hurling uncorroborated sexual assault allegations into the chaotic court of public opinion. Stuff it. Your blanket “Believe Women” bloviations are moral and intellectual abominations that insult every human being of sound mind and soul. A certain class of never-Trump harumphers are leading the charge on behalf of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s memory-addled partisan accuser Christine Blasey Ford — who cannot recall the year she was allegedly traumatized, where it happened, who threw the party that paralyzed her for nearly four decades, how many were in attendance...

    Watch video of our great hero Some notable quotes: What I want our adversary to know is please work with our State Department. You really don’t want to work with me. That’s our message. America today is emerging from a period of strategic atrophy. To be out of Washington DC I am so happy I could cry. We have changed our tactics from attrition to annihilation. We surround the enemy and eliminate it.

    Washington is bracing for a white nationalist rally [Unite the Right 2] that law enforcement agencies will try to prevent from descending into a melee like the one in Charlottesville, Virginia, that cast a shadow over Donald Trump’s presidency a year ago. .... Marking the anniversary on Saturday, Trump condemned “all types of racism and acts of violence,” a shift from his widely-criticized equivocation of 2017. ..... “I think there is blame on both sides,” Trump said during a press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York. He added that the white nationalist protesters in Charlottesville included...

    The Federalist ^ | 7/10/2018 | Michael Doran
    Donald Trump, it turned out, read the conservative electorate much more accurately than the finest minds in Republican punditry. Their response is revenge. In his rebuttal of Emerald Robinson’s attack on President Trump’s conservative critics, Jonah Goldberg singled me out for opprobrium because I applauded her thesis on Twitter. .... Rubio, Silver explained, was almost every Republican’s fallback candidate. He was the first choice of only one group: “cosmopolitan conservatives.” Silver’s label hit me with a jolt of self-recognition. I have degrees from Stanford and Princeton universities, spend many weeks of every year abroad, and live and work in uber-liberal...

    Project Syndicate: The World's Opinion Page ^ | July 3, 2018 | JEFFREY D. SACHS , BANDY X. LEE
    Most pundits interpret the US president’s outbursts as playing to his political base, or preening for the cameras, or blustering for the sake of striking future deals. In fact, Trump suffers from several psychological pathologies that render him a clear and present danger to the world. NEW YORK – Seemingly every day now, US President Donald Trump escalates his policy and personal attacks against other countries and their heads of state, the poor and the weak, and migrant families. Most recently, Trump has championed the heartless separation of migrant children from their parents. Though public outrage may have forced him...

    ... The most recent episode began with Friday's Group of Seven summit in Quebec, .... It followed Trump's decision not to exempt any of them from new U.S. "national security" tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. That ruling came on the heels of nearly 18 months of clashes over climate change, trade, NATO, Iran and other issues on a list so long it is hard to remember everything on it. "What worries me most . . . is the fact that the rules-based international order is being challenged," European Council President Donald Tusk said

    PJ Media ^ | FEBRUARY 14, 2018 | DEBRA HEINE
    In a Tedx Talk at the University of Nevada a couple of weeks ago, investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson revealed the origins of the "fake news" narrative that was aggressively pushed by the liberal media and Democrat politicians during the 2016 election, and how it was later flipped by President Donald Trump. Attkisson pointed out that "fake news" in the form of tabloid journalism and false media narratives has always been around under different names. But she noticed in 2016, there seemed to be a concerted effort by the MSM to focus America's attention on the idea of "fake news" in...

    US Constitution ^ | June 21, 1788 | James Madison, Alexander Hamilton
    Q anon tells us to expand our thinking, Seals [SEALS] are wonderful creatures, and work fast at capturing their prey." Well let us broaden our thinking and look at some of the frequently overlooked powers under the US constitution pertaining to "insurrection." After all bonus marchers aside, how long has it been since we have faced genuine "insurrection" within the boarders of the US? First, what is insurrection? The dictionary defines it as "a violent uprising against an authority or government." 18 US Code §§2381-2390 address TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES. For instance 18 U.S. Code § 2383 states "Whoever...

  • Report: Fed Bureaucracies Commit Thousands Of Felonies Every Day [Hiring Thousands Illegally]

    Daily Caller ^ | 09/20/2017 | TIM PEARCE
    Bureaucracies have successfully evaded congressional budget oversight for years by illegally hiring contract labor to take the place of employees, according to a Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) report released Tuesday. Bureaucracies commit thousands of felonies a day, misappropriating funds not approved by Congress and expanding agency influence at a time when government agencies should cut back. Bureaucracies freeze hiring new employees, ideally to stop expansion and cut costs, when under pressure to reform or adapt to budget cuts. Many agencies continue to grow despite budget cutbacks, however, by illegally hiring outside contract labor. “While contracting for these services is contrary...

Yet Democrats are stuck in loser gear.. Trump's fatal flow is that he cannot drag himself away from the mirror.

    Naval officer Lt. Cmdr. Edward C. Lin will serve six years in prison for mishandling classified information in an attempt to impress women. As part of a plea deal, Lin will only have to serve six years instead of the nine that Judge Cmdr. Robert Monahan sentenced him to Friday, and since he’s already spent 646 days in prison, he effectively has only four years left of confinement, The Virginian-Pilot reports. He will also be dismissed from the Navy and lose all pay allowance. Prosecutors wanted 12 years and the defense hoped to bring down the sentence to 1.5 years...

    The latest claim stems from a supposed meeting that President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn had on Dec. 1 or 2 with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak. According to The Washington Post, U.S. officials who reviewed intercepts between Kislyak and Moscow saw that Kushner requested "a secret [communications] channel with Moscow rather than relying on traditional government systems." ...Interestingly, The Washington Post apparently received its tip about this story through an anonymous letter it received in December — whose full contents the newspaper has not revealed.

    THE GAP BETWEEN coastal elites and America’s white working class has been growing for decades, but in the wee hours of November 9, America’s intellectuals discovered that they had been drowned in a tidal wave of anger and frustration. Harvard students may have supported Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump by 80 percent to 6 percent, and 91 percent of Harvard faculty members’ campaign contributions may have gone to Clinton—but none of that mattered as non-college-educated whites delivered a convincing electoral college victory to a man whom many elites abhorred. If selective colleges are the place where smart high-school kids begin...
