Raul Labrador: “Strong Possibility” Of “Miscarriage Of Justice” In Bundy Ranch Case

Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) is planning to retire from Congress to make a run for the Idaho governorship next year, but he has some unfinished business to handle before he leaves Washington D.C. for good. Earlier this month, Labrador penned a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions expressing serious concern with the Bundy ranch case that has lingered since the legendary 2014 stand-off with the feds. “Recently 53 current and former members of the Idaho Legislature wrote to you expressing serious concerns about the treatment of four Idaho residents in cases related to ‘The Bunkerville Stand-Off’ trials,” Labrador said in… Keep Reading

Mulvaney Slams Wasteful Travel Spending: “Every Penny We Spend Comes From The Taxpayer!”

The Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney, has released a memorandum directed at the heads of executive departments and agencies in the federal government, calling on them to use commercial air transport where possible. Mulvaney’s memorandum comes in the wake of the resignation of Health & Human Services Sec. Tom Price after it emerged that he had spent roughly $1 million on private planes. Similar allegations of misuse of travel expenses have also been made against other members of the Trump Cabinet, including Treasury Sec. Steven Mnuchin and Interior Sec. Ryan Zinke. “Government-owned, rented, leased, or chartered… Keep Reading

Conservatives Rise: Mike Lee Joins Rand Paul And Ted Cruz In Senate Bloc To Stop Obamacare Bailout

President Donald Trump has worked with GOP establishment leaders, more commonly referred to as the swamp, on healthcare reform repeatedly to no avail. The latest attempts to bailout Obamacare have been universally reviled, drawing ire from conservatives, moderates, and liberal Democrats. One of the primary conservatives standing in opposition to Obamacare bailout legislation is Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) led the way against bailing out Obamacare with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) right behind him. Lee has now followed suit by offering a complete dismissal of any bipartisan agreements to bail out Obamacare. One of Lee’s senior aides… Keep Reading

Fed Chair Yellen: The Economy May Be Weaker Than We Thought

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen this week cast doubt on the Fed’s announced plan to continue Fed rate hikes and reverse its years of “unconventional” monetary policy. “My colleagues and I may have misjudged the strength of the labor market,” Yellen announced on Tuesday, adding that they’d also misjudged “the degree to which longer-run inflation expectations are consistent with our inflation objective, or even the fundamental forces driving inflation.” Yellen also “noted that the labor market, which historically has been closely linked to inflation, may not be as tight as the low unemployment rate suggests.” In other words, Fed economists are… Keep Reading

More People Need A Punch In The Head

It is often complained about that civil society just isn’t very civil anymore. And those who argue certainly have a very good point. A cursory glance around the world at the moment would show a smattering of politically based riots and terrorism going on at any given time. Much more prevalent (albeit not as singularly harmful) are the many tiny, venal ways that individuals make other people’s lives worse. Undoubtedly, you’ve seen these in your daily life: Those in the workforce have to deal with the inane regulations of their bosses (that seemingly exist just to prove you can follow… Keep Reading

Should 3D Printing Real Or Airsoft Guns Be Legal?

The demand for guns in the United States is at or near an all-time high, and as the urgency increases so too does the number of FBI background checks that are carried out on new gun purchases. Firearm legislation is a hotly contested topic these days, which is causing those in the pro-gun camp to clutch their weapons tighter and scramble to purchase more. The next big question on everyone’s mind seems to be whether or not the public should have the right to print their own guns, and let’s just say the debate so far has been pretty polarized.… Keep Reading

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee Kneels In Protest On Congressional Floor

What started with National Football League player Colin Kaepernick last year has become a full blown movement across the country. It slowly moved around the NFL, with other players joining Kaepernick to kneel during the National Anthem to protest their cause. For Kaepernick, it was a social justice cause calling attention to racial inequality. This is the same for other players, while others have done it purely out of solidarity with other protesters. In the last couple of weeks, it’s spread to Major League Baseball and become a more widespread movement since President Donald Trump called anyone who does it… Keep Reading

Health And Human Services Secretary Tom Price Resigns

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has been facing an onslaught of criticism from both sides of the aisle in recent days. A series of reports surfaced showing lavish spending on expensive private jets instead of more cost efficient commercial travel. The shock ranged from partisan attacks by Democrats and shocked Republicans who always knew Secretary Price as a fiscal hawk in Congress. News has just broken that Secretary Price has offered his resignation, however. President Donald Trump has accepted the resignation, concluding the Secretary’s downfall from budget hawk to big spender. Prior to the announcement, The Liberty Conservative… Keep Reading

Will President Trump Allow Release Of The Final JFK Assassination Documents?

The assassination of former President John F. Kennedy is known as one of the most tragic moments in United States history. A popular, young President was riding along in a motorcade in Dallas when he was shot dead sitting next to his wife, Jackie. The assassin would later be caught and then killed before he could tell his side of the story. Since, many questions have lingered. Was Lee Harvey Oswald indeed the shooter, or was he just a lowly patsy? If he was indeed the assassin, did he act alone? The basic premise of the story is known through… Keep Reading

Under the terms of the deal, Assange would provide information vindicating Russia of the now-widespread accusation that the country hacked into the Democratic National Committee and subsequently gave the information they acquired to Wikileaks in an effort to assist Donald Trump.

President Trump Tells Migrants To Stay Out, Slashes Number Of Incoming Refugees

During the presidential campaign, immigration was a defining issue for candidate Donald Trump. With bold pledges about rejecting refugees and building a big wall on the Mexican border, he was due to tackle immigration unlike any other President in recent history. As President, that has changed as Trump has struggled to match policy with his campaign promises in the midst of constant criticism. He has stood firm on his travel bans though, with battles raging all throughout the court system.

A seismic earthquake hit Alabama’s elections on Tuesday.

Judge Moore accomplished this despite being outspent by a more than 10-to-1 margin.

Why Rand Paul Is Wrong On Graham-Cassidy

The Donald Trump era has made Washington D.C. a little more entertaining, but has done little to change how the Beltway operates.
