    Just so we are clear, the title of this missive is about our current President. However, this is not something new since the current president was the Vice President for an individual, Barack Hussein Obama, who also carried this title. No, this is not sensational, hyperbolic rhetoric. Consider that early on in his tenure as president, Obama spoke at the University of Cairo in Egypt and invited members of the Muslim Brotherhood front and center.If you are not familiar with the Muslim Brotherhood, perhaps you should read the Explanatory Memorandum for their Strategic Operations in North America. This document was...
  • Anatomy of a Kangaroo Court-A trial that has nothing to do with law

    The Donald Trump New York City farce is on the way to being over. The prosecution (at least) rested after what would’ve been a disastrous performance by Michael Cohen in any other trial, but the standard rules don’t apply here because this is not actually a trial. This trial has nothing to do with law. It is a scummy attempt to frame a political opponent of the Democrats to keep him from winning an election against the desiccated old pervert in the White House. Normally, a jury would laugh this case out of court, except that it would never have...

    Editor’s note: Shillman Fellow Daniel Greenfield has written a powerful new book, Domestic Enemies: The Founding Fathers’ Fight Against The Left. Highly original and urgently relevant, Domestic Enemies unveils the hypocrisies and destructive schemes of the Left, revealing that it has been trying to destroy America from its very founding – using many of the same tactics that it employs today.Democrats claim Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson were the fathers of their party. The truth is that their party started out as a radical leftist movement set up by supporters of the French Revolution to seize power in America.Learn why...
  • Are Russia and North Korea planning an ‘October surprise’ that aids Trump? (LOL)

    The Biden administration is increasingly concerned that the intensifying military alliance between Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un could vastly expand Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities and increase tensions in the Asia-Pacific region, six senior U.S. officials told NBC News. U.S. officials are also bracing for North Korea to potentially take its most provocative military actions in a decade close to the U.S. presidential election, possibly at Putin’s urging, the officials said.

    Over a dozen Nimarata ‘Nikki’ Haley supporters, including former Women for Haley coalition members and the neoconservative’s state leadership teams, met with Joe Biden campaign deputy political director Juan Peñalosa on Wednesday.Haley is declining to endorse Trump or actively campaign against Biden, and despite officially dropping out of the GOP race, she continues to schmooze donors. Mitti Randhawa, Haley‘s brother, has suggested her supporters intend to mount a final coup attempt against Trump on the floor of the Republican National Convention in mid-July. National Pulse Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam has argued the Republican leadership should move to ban such plotters from...
  • Top Republicans call for House Speaker Dade Phelan’s ouster at GOP convention (runoff election Tuesday!)

    Houston Chronicle ^ | 5/23/24 | Cayla Harris, Benjamin Wermund
    Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Attorney General Ken Paxton railed against House Speaker Dade Phelan at the Texas Republican Party’s convention Thursday in San Antonio, predicting voters would oust him in Tuesday’s primary runoff election. Phelan is fighting to keep his political career alive in a contentious race against oil and gas consultant David Covey. Patrick, Paxton and Texas GOP Chair Matt Rinaldi have all been instrumental in the campaign to unseat Phelan, a five-term Republican from Beaumont, and have derided him as a fake Republican who has handed too much power to Democrats.

    President Joe Biden is blaming record-setting levels of illegal immigration to the United States on congressional Republicans, suggesting they are standing in the way of “border enforcement.” On Thursday, a bill to expand legal immigration while permitting tens of thousands of migrant encounters along the U.S.-Mexico border failed in the Senate by a 43-50 vote.

    NEW YORK – Former President Donald Trump has broken political norms by visiting one of the most deep-blue areas in New York City, a town not necessarily known for its kindness to Republicans. Trump rallied a crowd of what his campaign estimated to be 25,000 supporters at Crotona Park in the Bronx on Thursday, far more than the initial 3,500 it said were expected to attend. Those numbers appeared to also include those lined up outside the event – who waited hours for a shot at getting inside even after the event began. "I'm here tonight to declare we are...

    MAGA Donald Trump supporters have rallied behind the former president after he released FBI paperwork, connected to its search of his Mar-a-Lago residence, showing agents were permitted to use "deadly force." On Tuesday, Trump shared on his social media platform Truth Social the information revealed by an unsealed search warrant in his classified documents case which said that federal agents were prepared to use "deadly force" when executing the raid of his Florida resort. After the news broke, former Trump strategist Steve Bannon and Trump ally Mike Davis discussed what they called an "assassination" plot by the bureau. A post...

    Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R) announced Thursday he would call the GOP-controlled state Legislature into a special session next week to discuss getting both President Biden and former President Trump on the state’s fall ballot. Democrats have been unable to certify Biden as their nominee in the state — a largely procedural issue where both parties have to certify their presidential candidate with the state ahead of the state’s deadline — because the Democratic National Convention takes place after the Ohio certification deadline.

The axed policy had also required the UNC system office plus all UNC universities to work toward DEI goals. The 24-member board voted by voice; two black trustees voted no on the new policy...

    The Senate voted down the bipartisan border bill Thursday, marking the second time it has been blocked in a matter of months as Democrats look to shore up their political troubles and give President Biden and incumbent senators a boost in the process. In a widely expected outcome, senators voted 43-50 to take down the proposal, which was negotiated over the fall and winter by Sens. James Lankford (R-Okla.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.). The bill lost support compared to the previous vote in February, which fell in a 49-50 tally. Headlining those who flipped their votes this...

He testified alongside college presidents from Northwestern and Rutgers.

    Newsmax anchor Rob Schmitt deftly dismantled the establishment media’s latest contrived smear against former President Donald Trump with a brutal on-air smackdown. The manufactured left-wing outrage erupted Monday shortly after a video created by a Trump supporter was reposted on the former president’s Truth Social account. At the time, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee was in a New York City courtroom, so it seems unlikely he personally shared the post. The ad begins with a narrator asking, “What happens after Donald Trump wins? What’s next for America?” The narrator then reads a series of hypothetical headlines such as “The Economy...

Holmes said, “Well, certainly, a bigger crowd than I think Democrats would like to see, particularly given this is one of...

    Governor Kathy Hochul (D-NY) said Thursday on CNN’s “The Lead” that former President Donald Trump is wasting time in New York, which is “solidly behind Joe Biden,” while the president is “out their winning over the rest of the battleground states.” Host Jake Tapper said, “So Donald Trump, former President Trump, he’s holding an event shortly in the Bronx in an effort to attract voters of color, Latinos and African-Americans. Historically, a loyal voting block for Democrats, especially African-Americans but the truth is this is, this is a sport, this is a politics of margins. What more to Democrats need...

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis are signaling to donors that they are putting their rivalry behind them after a contentious and often personal primary fight. DeSantis convened his allies this week in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to press them to raise money to support Trump, making the case over a seafood and steak dinner that they need to work together to prevent Democratic President Joe Biden from winning a second term. Trump called into the gathering to thank members of the group for their work, according to four people...
