  • SCOTUS dismisses bids to sue Trump over claims his D.C. hotel profited from his presidency and says case is moot because he's out of office

    The Supreme Court on Monday threw out two lawsuits accusing Donald Trump of violating the emoluments clause and profiting off of his presidency by maintaining ownership of his business empire while president. The highest U.S. court formally dismissed the lawsuits just five days after Trump left office, deeming them moot since the business mogul and television personality is no longer seated in the Oval Office. One of the entities most often brought into question was Trump's hotel near the White House... One of the suits was filed by the District of Columbia and the state of Maryland and the other...

    This is a message for Democrats. Not progressives, or socialists, or communist sympathizers, but real, old-school, Democrats. The kind that love the United States of America and only differ from Republicans because their vision of government is as a benevolent entity meant to help our fellow human beings.Your party is gone.Really, It’s GoneThe party that took over the White House on January 20th is a very different party, and if you don’t get wise to it soon, it will be too late.The violence of January 6th has led various pundits and politicians to use the word “insurrection.” That word is...

    recently received an e-mail from a reader of Live Not By Lies who said that the book was saying exactly what needed to be said right now, in this extraordinary moment for traditional Christians and political conservatives. I would have normally thanked him, and let that be that, but this was no ordinary reader. This was from an experienced military intelligence officer, now retired. Lieutenant Colonel (USA, Ret) Alexander Braszko served the country for 22 years as a Military Intelligence and Space Operations officer. He has extensive experience integrating space, cyberspace and information operations capabilities into Army and Joint operations....

    The Washington Post tried to push propaganda that former President Donald Trump’s economy was terrible for minorities. One economist set the paper straight. The Post’s story online was outrageously headlined, “The Trump economy left Black Americans behind. Here’s how they want Biden to narrow the gaps.” The print headline was even worse: “Left behind in Trump’s economy, Black voters want bold action from Biden.” Both were wrong. The piece pivoted off of its incendiary anti-Trump bent to say “Black Americans” are now “counting on [President Joe Biden] to deliver on his promise to end systemic racism” in the American economy....

    From killing the Keystone XL pipeline to seeking to extend a flawed New START treaty, President Biden's first two days in office were great for Moscow.Since assuming office last Wednesday, President Joe Biden has been busy issuing more than two dozen executive decisions that will profoundly affect domestic affairs and foreign policies. Among his foreign polices directives, two decisions stand out. They’ll benefit Russia at the expense of the interests of our allies, American workers, and America’s national security. The first executive decision that benefits Russia was Biden’s executive order to rescind the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. The...

    Personnel is policy is an adage that has been around Washington, D.C. almost as long as President Joe Biden. His administration is certainly no exception. Biden’s picks for key domestic policy roles have a history of abortion extremism and will no doubt make this administration the most radical, pro-abortion administration in history.In a typical administration, the secretarial positions are peppered with superstars or controversial figures of the respective political party, including former rivals for the presidential nomination. But instead of crafting policy through these different departments, the Biden administration is poised to direct policy through the Office of Management and...

  • Twitter Launches 'Birdwatch', a Liberal 'Fact Checking' Feature Designed to 'Combat Misinformation' But is Actually Meant to Silence Christians & Conservatives

    Twitter unveiled a feature called Birdwatch on Monday meant to bolster its efforts to combat misinformation and disinformation by tapping users in a fashion similar to Wikipedia to flag potentially misleading tweets. Not content with their silencing and censoring the views and opinions of people like Donald Trump, Twitter now turns to the Twitterverse to enlist them to do their dirty work for them. Censorship will become a group effort, where no opinion will be allowed except for the opinion of the group. This is exactly what George Orwell warned would happen one day in America, that day is now...

    In secretly recorded talks with informer Stefan Halper, Carter Page dispelled key Russia collusion allegations before FISA warrant was even approved. Four days before the FBI secured a surveillance warrant against him in fall 2016, Trump campaign adviser Carter Page repeatedly knocked down the key allegations at the heart of the Russia collusion investigation while talking to a government informant who was wearing a wire. Page's unwitting statements of innocence to informer Stefan Halper were never shared with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court before it approved four warrants authorizing a full year of surveillance of Page's communications. Page's exculpatory statements...

    On his first day in office, Joe Biden killed the Keystone XL pipeline. This controversial move was condemned by the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA). “In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1,” Mark McManus, president of the UA, said on Monday. “Let me be very clear: When built with union labor by the men and women of the United Association, pipelines like Keystone XL remain the safest and most efficient modes of energy transportation in the...

    An opinion writer who frequently contributed op-eds to the New York Times has admitted to being paid well by the Iranian mission to the United Nations but insists that this did not make him an agent of the Iranian government or influence his writing. Kaveh Afrasiabi is currently under arrest, accused of violating the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA). For its part, the New York Times, which still claims to publish "all the news that's fit to print," is dummying up, keeping its readers in the dark on the subject, and offering no comment.Ira Stoll of The Algemeiner has the...
  • Rantz: Councilmember Gonzalez renews push to fire white Seattle police officers

    The Seattle City Council will renew its push to fire white officers within the Seattle Police Department. The move comes after a nearly 20% cut to the budget and a loss of nearly 200 officers from the department. The SPD has the lowest deployable rate of officers since 1990, as the city experiences a surge in violent crime, including a 26-year-high murder rate. We shouldn’t be firing anyone. Legal issues aside, the only practical way the council can fire white officers is to negotiate the right in the next contract. They’ll get their chance to in 2021. The Seattle Police...

    A faction of Republican senators aim to defuse former President Donald Trump's impeachment trial before it even starts. The plan was presented by Sen. Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, in a short tweet thread Monday evening after the House impeachment managers delivered to the Senate an article charging Trump with inciting an insurrection in connection to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. "I will work with other like-minded Republican senators to challenge the constitutionality of this vindictive #impeachment trial before it begins," Johnson said. "On January 6 we collectively acknowledged it was not wise for Congress to overrule...

    Former British spy Christopher Steele told a British court that he shared his infamous dossier in 2016 with an associate expecting that it would be provided to State Department officials, including Antony Blinken, who is considered a top contender for secretary of state in a Joe Biden administration. According to a judge’s decision handed down last week in a dossier-related lawsuit, Steele told the court that he provided a copy of the dossier in early November 2016 to Strobe Talbott, a former deputy secretary of state who then served as the president of the Brookings Institution. Steele also said he...

    PASCO, WA A Pasco union leader’s controversial comments linking “reopen everything” movements with white privilege have set off calls for people to leave the union. Pasco Association of Educators President Scott Wilson’s two-minute statement at the Jan. 12 school board meeting linked “free to breathe” and “free to reopen everything” rodeos and rallies with a “culture of white supremacy and white privilege.” The comments from the white middle school teacher have raised the ire of dozens of people upset about the comparison, and led to a letter circulating on Facebook calling for members to opt out of the teachers union.

    Tony Blinken, the Biden administration’s nominee for Secretary of State, managed a Joe Biden project that received millions of anonymous Chinese donor dollars. Blinken appeared a handful of times in emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop agreeing to advise Hunter Biden when Hunter worked at the scandal-plagued firm Rosemont Seneca Partners. The Obama State Department set up a meeting between Hunter and Blinken which was postponed, and the two met two months later in 2015. Hunter Biden coordinated introductions between Blinken and his associates, and Blinken was named in an email in connection to a shady prospective deal involving the...

    PORTLAND, OR- Last September, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler decided that his officers, despite the fact they had been dealing with nearly four months of nightly, violent riots in the city, decided he was going to take one of their tools away from them…the use of tear gas. Apparently, those rules don’t apply to Wheeler, however. According to the New York Post at the time, Wheeler, who had also been gassed during one of those protests said “we need something different” in order to put a stop to the nightly anarchy taking place in Portland. Wheeler, however, doesn’t appear to follow...
