The Suffering Of The One Percent: “Beach House” Bernie Sanders And Wife Investigated For Fraud

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), self-proclaimed champion of the underdog, has been calling for big government to put the rich elites in their place for many years. Now Bernie and his wife, Jane, may be receiving exactly what he asked for–good and hard! Jane Sanders was the President of Burlington College, a small, liberal arts school in Vermont, from 2004 to 2011. Under her stewardship, the college fell to pieces under the weight of crushing debt. The school will be closed at the end of the month, pretty much singlehandedly because of Sanders’ mismanagement, but now a probe is singling at her and her husband for potential criminal wrongdoing. Jane is accused of deliberately misrepresenting the number of donors on a 2010 loan application to the People’s United Bank for $10 million needed to buy 33 acres of lakefront property for the college. Additionally, Politico recently reported that prosecutors will be looking into allegations that Bernie used the power of his Senatorial office to inappropriately urge the bank to approve… Keep Reading

President Trump Will Work To Soften Conservative Senators On Health Care

President Donald Trump is working on a way to make health care reform a reality. Although he has been pushing publicly for more spending in the Senate version of health care reform, he sees the opportunity to bring hard-line conservative lawmakers over to his side. Josh Dawsey wrote in a Politico report on Friday that Trump was courting Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) to come around on legislation being pushed by he and Senate GOP leadership. Both legislators have signed onto an effort spearheaded by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to stop the current iteration of health care reform. Trump sees Paul as the ultimate prize to win over as a “yes” vote for his health care plan. According to a White House official, Trump ‘sees it as a personal mission’ to win Rand Paul’s support. Because of the personal relationship that has been cultivated between the two men in recent months, Trump believes that he has the competitive edge to ease Paul’s concerns regarding the health… Keep Reading

Alabama High School Institutes Thought Control, Bans Conservative Book List

Alabama teacher Gene Ponder is clearly well-versed in conservative and libertarian knowledge, and he wanted to impart that knowledge onto his students. A long-time Republican activist, he assigned a reading list of books to his students that immediately caused a great deal of controversy. Ponder assigned a list of books for his AP Government/Economics students including “Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto,” “End the Fed,” “No They Can’t: Why Government Fails-But Individuals Succeed,” “Great Myths of the Great Depression,” and “The County Sheriff: America’s Last Hope.” The good cross-section of libertarian and conservative views represented in the list was meant to counterbalance the liberal indoctrination known to dominate public school curricula. Spanish Fort High School brass was not pleased by Ponder’s actions, and immediately forced him to pull the list. Keep Reading

Rand Paul: Ryan’s Health Care Reform “Looks Too Much Like Obamacare”

There is a fight brewing between President Donald Trump and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) regarding health care. Trump is lobbying to add more mandates and giveaways to the Senate bill while Paul is standing firmly behind his limited government principles. “We have estimated that it may have more subsidies than Obamacare,” Paul said about the health care bill currently being pushed by the President and Senate GOP leadership in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News. “It creates a new entitlement program that gives out over $100 billion to insurance companies, and that’s not why I joined the Republican party and not why I ran for office to vote for more entitlement programs,” Paul said. In Paul’s ideal world, health care would be determined through the marketplace and consumers would be the prime benefactors. Although that is not tenable in the current bureaucratic morass, Paul wants Republican legislators to work toward free market goals rather than strengthening the failed status quo. Keep Reading

Conservative Senators Form a United Front Against Senate Health Care Reform

A conservative bloc of Senators is taking a stand to save the Republican health care legislation from becoming another big government boondoggle. While President Trump and Senate GOP leaders debate about how many mandates and giveaways they will put in the new legislation, Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ron Johnson (R-WI), and Mike Lee (R-UT) have other plans. The four men released a joint statement on Thursday saying, “Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor. There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current health care system, but it does not appear this draft as written will accomplish the most important promise that we made to Americans: to repeal Obamacare and lower their health care costs.” Keep Reading

Sen. Rand Paul Argues To Stop Communism In Cuba With Capitalism And Free Trade

While President Donald Trump was elected in large part to reverse the policies of his predecessor, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) thinks there is one area where former President Obama actually got it right: normalizing foreign relations with Cuba. “For over half a century, we have had an embargo with Cuba,” Paul wrote in a Reason Magazine op/ed published on Tuesday. “Not only did the Castros survive it, but they milked it for everything it was worth. As the only source of information on the island for decades, they stoked the nationalism of those Cubans who remained in Cuba to blame America for any of their shortages, instead of the true culprit: socialism.” Keep Reading

Rand Paul Skewers The Military-Industrial Complex In Senate Committee Hearing

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is no happy camper when it comes to American foreign policy. Fresh off of a narrow defeat to partially stop President Trump’s Saudi weapons deal, Paul rallied against Syrian military intervention during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing this afternoon. “Are we going to limit the president’s power? Are we going to take back our power? I think a five-year sunset, is–you know, and I don’t mean to be mean, but–is essentially nothing. I mean, we’ve had millions of people die in five-year wars before, so I think it’s — it’s virtually meaningless,” Paul said. Paul believes that proposed Senate’s reforms would do very little to change the status quo. Instead, they are mere token measures that would allow the military-industrial complex to continue its hegemonic policies abroad while Americans are lulled back to sleep in the homeland. Paul is especially livid about the abuse of the Authorization of Use of Military Force signed by George W. Bush in 2001, which has been used as… Keep Reading

The Evolution Of Firearms: Enhanced Weapons Will Increase Your Survival Odds

In this developing technological age, the threats are growing more dangerous than ever before. Criminal elements, radicalized extremists, and even overbearing government officials are stockpiling arms like never before. The marketplace is responding with innovations to make sure consumers are able to protect themselves in this dangerous world. That is how the AK-50 was born. Fayetteville, North Carolina gun manufacturer Brandon Herrera is a rifle specialist. He has been working on a modification of an AK-style weapon that would fire 50 caliber rounds. Although this weapon may be heavier and less practical than a standard semi-automatic firearm, it very well may give an individual the edge that they need to get out of a bigger-an-usual jam.

Rep. Thomas Massie: We Need The Concealed Carry Of Pistols Inside The Beltway!

In the wake of last week’s terrorist shooting of Republican lawmakers and their aides during a Congressional baseball practice, many legislators are calling for action to make sure that a tragedy like this does not occur again. While Democrats are predictably calling for more gun control, one intrepid legislator has taken the opposite approach by calling for concealed carry inside the beltway! “It’s clear that the Capitol Hill police who were there were heroic, but had Steve Scalise not been there, there would have been fatalities, and a lot of congressmen would have been hurt,” Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) said while appearing on a broadcast of “Cavuto” on FOX Business. “What I’m trying to do is anticipate how to avoid a tragic situation in the future… What the American people don’t realize is most Congressmen don’t have a security detail, and we are exposed as the general public is exposed when they come to visit our nation’s capital,” Massie said.

House Freedom Caucus Fights To Reform Secret FISA Courts

The House Freedom Caucus is gearing up for another political fight. This time, they are working to reform the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court. This is the secret court system that authorized ubiquitous federal surveillance on all Americans. “Government surveillance activities under the FISA Amendments Act have violated Americans’ constitutionally protected rights,” the Freedom Caucus said in a press release. “We oppose any reauthorization of the FISA Amendments Act that does not include substantial reforms to the government’s collection and use of Americans’ data.” Although the Freedom Caucus has not been specific as to what reforms they will ultimately push for, watchdog groups have outlined what needs to be changed in order to restore proper justice to the courts. “The FISA Court must change in at least two ways: it needs a true advocate for privacy and civil liberties in the court and it must have institutionalized, systematic publication of significant opinions,” Dia Kayyali wrote in an Electronic Frontier Foundation article.

Trump Administration Revives The Bush Doctrine, Calls For Regime Change In Iran

Any person hoping that the Trump administration would depart from the long-standing foreign policy consensus of Washington D.C. should be sorely disappointed by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s congressional testimony this week. “I would tell you that we certainly recognize Iran’s continued destabilizing presence in the region, their payment of foreign fighters, their export of militia forces in Syria, in Iraq, in Yemen,” Tillerson said to the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday. Tillerson apparently finds it problematic that Iranian forces are working to fight ISIS throughout the Middle East. The Trump administration funnels weapons to states such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar, two countries known to support ISIS, while leading the public to believe that Iran is the grave threat in the region. This is reminiscent of the illogical Bush-era foreign policy that then-candidate Trump bashed frequently on the campaign trail last year. Although Tillerson says that the Trump administration’s policy proposal on Iran is incomplete and the President hasn’t been briefed about it at the present time,… Keep Reading

Vladimir Putin Trolls The U.S. Deep State Yet Again, Offers Asylum To James Comey

Russian President Vladimir Putin seems to be enjoying himself these days. With the United States political system in peril as Russian conspiracy fever takes hold, Putin cannot help but stir the pot from his home country. This time, he has done so by offering asylum to disgraced former FBI director James Comey. “If he continues to be persecuted in this connection, we will be ready to provide political asylum to him, he should know about that,” Putin said on “The Direct Line,” his annual televised question-and-answer program with the Russian people. Presently, Putin is giving asylum to famed NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who released groundbreaking revelations to the world showing the NSA’s true hacking capabilities. This made Snowden a hero to millions and a villain to millions more. Comey is a less divisive figure and has even served to unite bitter political enemies in shared mutual hatred toward himself. Indeed, it is difficult to think of a more universally reviled political figure than Comey in recent years. Keep Reading

Rand Paul: “New Entitlements” In Senate Healthcare Bill Must Be Stopped!

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) narrowly avoided tragedy this week after a gunman shot up a congressional baseball practice, leaving a colleague in critical condition and wounding several others. This tragedy has not stopped Paul from doing his job, and warning the American public about devastating changes to the healthcare bill. “I think we shouldn’t have new entitlements that will go on forever in a Republican plan to fix healthcare,” Paul said to reporters today. “We can’t pay for what we already have: Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.” A revised version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) passed the House earlier this year but not without controversy. President Trump started a public fight against the House Freedom Caucus, and sided with House Majority Leader Paul Ryan (R-WI) to push a bill that essentially re-branded Obamacare. A compromise bill was eventually passed, but apparently Trump is lobbying the Senate for more government control. Trump told Senate Republicans earlier this week that the AHCA version passed by the House was a… Keep Reading

Rand Paul Channels His Father With Impassioned Plea On Behalf Of Saudi Terror Victims

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) tried his darnedest to partially halt Trump’s Saudi weapons deal. He was able to raise a great deal of bipartisan support, but his amendment failed by a closer-than-anticipated 47-53 vote on Tuesday. However, Paul did not go down without a fight. He gave quick but powerful remarks hearkening back to his epic Drone filibuster of 2013 as well as his father’s legendary speeches delivered from the House floor. “[Saudi Arabia] bombed and killed 125 civilians at a funeral. They wounded 500. This was no mistake, there was no error. This was them pointedly dropping the bombs on civilians,” Paul said on the Senate floor while pushing his doomed proposal against Trump’s Saudi weapons deal. Keep Reading

Islamic Libertarian Harassed By Leftists After Starting a Fundraiser For Deceased Oathkeeper

When oathkeeping patriot Frank Morganthaler suffered a heart attack while protesting Sharia Law this past weekend, leftists laughed at him as his life slipped away. This inspired an Islamic libertarian to start a fundraiser for the deceased man despite their political disagreements. This show of unity was soundly rejected by the intolerant left, who have started a campaign of harassment against the compassionate Muslim. Will Coley’s idea was to raise funds to show mercy toward their enemies during the Islamic holy season of Ramadan. At a time when political tensions are reaching frightening highs, Coley hoped that this gesture would re-introduce a little bit of human dignity into the political sphere. After encountering vicious hate-filled leftists on social media, Coley’s hopes were dashed. “We will not be deterred in our drive to do good for others, even those who see themselves as my enemy,” Coley wrote on Facebook in defense of his cause. Despite the heavy flak he is taking, he is hoping to raise $10,000 to pay for… Keep Reading

BREAKING: Young Americans For Liberty Used As “Rent-a-Mob” For Big Government Republican

Just a few weeks ago, dozens of precocious young libertarians from throughout the country were bussed out to beautiful Mackinac Island in Northern Michigan. Advertised as “a ground breaking opportunity for liberty,” starry eyed activists hit the pavement with enthusiasm and vigor to make liberty win. Little did they know they were being used as pawns by a big government politician with questionable values. “You will be the deciding factor that brings Liberty to a state this summer and lays the ground work for exciting opportunities to come,” Young Americans for Liberty boasted on their “Liberty Summer” page. It continued, “It’s time. All eyes will be on this. Want Change? Change Something.” Field representatives were offered $1,500 pay with housing provided as well as stipends for gas and “a month of liberty immersion” to participate in the project. One crucial detail conspicuously absent in the description was who the activists would really be working for: Michigan Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley. Keep Reading

Sen. Rand Paul Leads Bipartisan Charge Against Trump’s Saudi Weapons Deal

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has assembled an impressive bipartisan coalition in the Senate to block part of President Trump’s Saudi weapons deal. Paul is concerned that the deal may cause blowback due to an ongoing Saudi Arabian military conflict with Yemen, and prominent Democrats share his concerns. “We need to send the Saudis a message that they need to get serious about the humanitarian nightmare inside Yemen,” Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said. “Unfortunately, the administration has not used these weapons sales to apply that conditionality. But a strong message from the U.S. Senate that they don’t have a blank check from the Congress would be very important.” Murphy is leading the Democratic wing of bipartisan resistance to Trump’s weapons deal with the Saudis, which is the biggest in American history. It is worth $110 billion immediately and could increase to as much as $360 billion over the decade. This all but ensures that American-brokered arms will be used to commit atrocities in Yemen, where Saudis have been using chemical… Keep Reading

Milo Yiannopoulos’ Immediate Resurgance Shows Media Hitmen Are Losing Power

Just a few months ago, mainstream media commentators were doing victory laps over Milo Yiannopoulos’ fall from grace. Dropped from his post at Breitbart News and forced to apologize over controversial comments regarding pedophilia, establishment liberals and conservatives alike were breathing sighs of relief thinking that Milo finally was out of their hair. Those establishment politicos counted their chickens before they hatched.

College Republicans Embrace Transgender Community, Schedule Caitlyn Jenner To Speak At National Convention

She was recently announced as a speaker for the gala event. “BIG NEWS: [Caitlyn Jenner]. #CRNC2017. Mic Drop. BE THERE,” the College Republican National Committee announced in a tweet on Tuesday. While Republicans may have opposed the LGBTQ agenda in the past, this move indicates that the College Republicans are changing their strategy and distancing themselves from social conservatism.

Trump Administration Scrambles To Salvage Russian Diplomatic Ties In New Era Of McCarthyism

The Trump administration hoped to normalize relations with Russia after his predecessor’s diplomatic failures reignited a Cold War of sorts, but the sore losers in the Democratic Party are intent upon keeping the countries at odds with each other. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is trying to repair the damage, but it is a tall order. “Today our relationships with Russia are at a very low point so the President asked me to begin a re-engagement process with Russia,” Tillerson said during a diplomatic visit to New Zealand. Tillerson was chosen as Secretary of State partly because of his strong connections to Russia. He was awarded Russia’s Order of Friendship medal in 2013 by President Vladimir Putin personally back when he was CEO of ExxonMobil. If anyone could mend fences at this point, it would be Tillerson.

Megyn Kelly Goes Deep In The Heart Of Texas To Land Bombshell Alex Jones Interview

Popular libertarian radio host Alex Jones has said many not-so-nice things about television anchorwoman Megyn Kelly over the years. Because of this long history, today’s photo-op of Kelly in Jones’ Austin, TX studio side-by-side her fierce rival and critic has shocked many onlookers. They recorded an interview today that will air on NBC. “I just want it known, I’m not doing the interview because she’s a pretty girl, I’m doing it because I can’t be a wimp and turn it down,” Jones said. Although Jones naturally suspected that chicanery was afoot and an ambush was imminent, he threw caution to the wind and recorded the interview anyway. Thus far, Kelly and her staff have played it completely coy and have been nothing but respectful to the conspiratorial Texan.

The Anti-Snowden: NSA Leaker Releases Classified Information To Harm President Trump

A recent leak of classified NSA intelligence has prompted comparisons to Edward Snowden’s 2013 heroism, but the two circumstances are entirely different. While Snowden released information to alert the public about systemic criminal wrongdoing, Reality Leigh Winner did her leaking to satisfy a petty, partisan vendetta against President Donald Trump. According to the crime report, Winner was contracted through the Pluribus International Corporation to work at a federal government facility in Georgia for several months. She used her Top Secret clearance to gain illicit access to privileged information, and then released it to The Intercept in an attempt to damage the President. The leaked document reads as follows, “Russian General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate actors … executed cyber espionage operations against a named U.S. company in August 2016, evidently to obtain information on elections-related software and hardware solutions. … The actors likely used data obtained from that operation to … launch a voter registration-themed spear-phishing campaign targeting U.S. local government organizations.” Keep Reading

Breitbart Goes Politically Correct, Fires Reporter For Criticizing Muslims

Times have changed since Steve Bannon left Breitbart News to serve as White House chief strategist. When Bannon was editor-in-chief of the publication, it never shied away from controversy and featured a variety of firebrands on their writing staff. Less than a year later, merely criticizing the Islamic religion can get you a pink slip at Breitbart. Former Breitbart journalist Katie McHugh wrote that “there would be no deadly terror attacks in the U.K. if Muslims didn’t live there” in a Tweet she posted after a terror attack killed seven people and injured 50 others in London on Saturday. It received over 1,000 retweets, and expressed a sentiment undoubtedly shared by the bulk of Breitbart’s readership. Nevertheless, it was considered a transgression large enough for McHugh to lose her job. “Breitbart News fired me for telling the truth about Islam and Muslim immigration,” McHugh said. She refuses to back down from her statements, and set up a fundraiser page to help pay for her “essential medical bills.” Keep Reading

Rebuilding America: Trump To Unveil Trillion-Dollar Infrastructure Plan This Week

President Donald Trump will begin to release details about his massive infrastructure plan this week. This is one of his most ambitious proposals, and if he is ultimately successful, it would unleash $1 trillion of public and private investment toward rebuilding America. Trump will be speaking in the Rose Garden today about his plans to separate air traffic control operations from the Federal Aviation Administration.

Military-Industrial Complex Pockets Tens Of Billions From Trump’s Saudi Weapons Deal

Trump’s America first policies are really paying off, at least if you are a multinational corporation in league with the military-industrial complex. Two of America’s most influential and well-connected defense contractors, Lockheed Martin and Boeing, stand to make tens of billions a piece from Trump’s recent weapons deal with Saudi Arabia. At a conference in New York last week, Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson boasted that her company will likely receive up to $28 billion in new business from Trump’s record $110 billion dollar weapons deal with the Saudis. Dennis Muilenburg, CEO of Boeing, one-upped his counterpart by estimating his company will profit to the tune of more than $50 billion from the agreement. According to a 24/7 Wall Street report, these estimates span throughout the course of many decades so revenue for the company is not expected to jump immediately. Nevertheless, the military-industrial complex will be well-lubricated and these defense contractors will grow more powerful over time as a direct result of Trump’s policies. Keep Reading

President Trump Enables CIA Swamp Rats By Engaging In Torture Report Cover-Up

President Donald Trump has been plagued with deep state treachery since he assumed his role in the Oval Office, but that isn’t stopping him from doing their dirty work anyway.

Free Speech Revoked: Former Pastor Convicted For Spreading Jury Nullification Pamphlets

In 2015, a former Big Rapids, MI pastor was arrested and charged with a felony for handing out jury nullification pamphlets outside of a county courthouse. Despite being an obvious infringement of the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, the man was still convicted of a lesser charge of misdemeanor jury tampering on Wednesday. Keith Wood, a father of eight, was disseminating information from the Fully Informed Jury Association on the sidewalk in front of the Mecosta County Courthouse in Nov. 2015. The fliers explained the rights that jurors possess in full, including the right for jurors to use their conscience when determining the result of a case. This notion, popularly known as jury nullification, has a long history of being used in the United States and was even endorsed by certain Founding Fathers.

A Revolution Squandered: National Libertarian Events Show a Moribund Movement On Its Last Legs

Back in 2013, Ron Paul had recently retired from Congress, and spirits were high. Libertarians felt that Ron Paul would be remembered as a historical figure after his Presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012 with his legacy lasting for generations to come. Optimism permeated through the movement, and it was widely believed that his son, Rand, would realize its full promise. His anti-drone filibuster was a huge hit to pretty much everybody, and the sky was seemingly the limit. It took less than four years for all of those gains to be completely pissed away. All of the credibility, the respect, the momentum that Ron Paul built singlehandedly for libertarians was gone in a flash. It is almost like none of it ever happened. How could this movement fall to pieces so fast? The answer to this distressing question becomes self-evident when you pay attention to the actions of the Republican Liberty Caucus and the Libertarian Party. Both organizations held separate conventions this past weekend. Keep Reading

Oregon Republicans Consider Using Militia Protection Against Growing Leftist Terror Threat

After a crazed Bernie Sanders fan allegedly murdered two people in a vicious subway attack last week, Oregon Republicans are now considering utilizing the well-regulated militia to ensure their safety. “I am sort of evolving to the point where I think that it is appropriate for Republicans to continue to go out there,” Multnomah County GOP chair James Buchal said to The Guardian. “And if they need to have a security force protecting them, that’s an appropriate thing too.” When asked to elaborate, Buchal did not mince words.

Neocons Cry As Trump Administration Imposes Fiscal Discipline Onto The Pentagon

The Trump administration’s proposed budget includes a light cap on spending for Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO). This represents only a very small anticipated decrease in certain Pentagon spending, but that hasn’t stopped neoconservatives from crying foul. OCO spending is capped at $65 billion in the Trump spending request being touted by budget director Mick Mulvaney. This is no small number, but it is down from the $83 billion that Congress approved for OCO spending in 2017. Mulvaney, a former member of the House Freedom Caucus, is intent on slowly reducing federal spending back to responsible levels, and that is wholly unacceptable to neocons insatiable in their lust for endless militarism. “If we implemented this budget, we’d have to retreat from the world and put a lot of people at risk,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said. The prominent neocon threatened “a lot of Benghazis in the making” would take place unless federal spending was restored to the levels reached by the Obama administration.

Trump Administration Set To Pull United States From Globalist Climate Agreement

One of former President Obama’s signature achievements is set to be completely nullified. President Donald Trump has alerted EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and other officials that he intends to withdraw from the Paris Climate deal. Trump wrote in a Tweet that was published yesterday, “I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!” Although Trump is still playing it coy publicly, his private plans are apparently far different. He is planning to seize upon his “America First” mandate pertaining to the environment, and eschew the arbitrary carbon caps manufactured by globalist elites. The Obama administration had previously pledged under the Paris Climate deal that the United States would limit their carbon dioxide emissions by up to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025. United States carbon dioxide emissions are already declining sharply in large part due to increased energy exploration, casting even more doubt on the necessity of this agreement. Keep Reading

Inside Rand Paul’s Bipartisan Plan To Stop Weapons Deal For Radical Islamic Saudis

Recent news of President Trump’s $350 billion weapons deal with Saudi Arabia may have thrilled the Military-Industrial Complex and its Wall Street backers, but Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is not pleased. He thinks the deal may have unintended consequences in the Middle East and is reaching across the aisle in an attempt to partially block the agreement.

Trump is currently abroad on the first international trip of his Presidency, and stopped in Brussels yesterday to join other world leaders at NATO headquarters. Although Trump has softened on NATO and no longer calls for their dissolution, Trump has not abandoned hardline rhetoric toward the organization completely. Dusko Markovic, Montenegro’s prime minister, felt the wrath of Trump personally as he was abruptly shoved aside by the President before a photo op. Markovic downplayed the incident. He said, “This was an inoffensive situation. I do not see it in any other way… I want to tell you that it is natural for the president of the United States to be in the first row.” Keep Reading

The Alt-Right Becomes New Pop Culture Scapegoat Of The Trump Era

When President Obama was in office, there was no shortage of portrayals in popular culture demonizing conservatives and libertarians. Patriots were regularly cast as hate-filled terror threats in television, video games, movies, and media outlets. In the age of President Trump, a new scapegoat du jour has emerged in the alt-right. The plot to a currently unreleased video game, Far Cry 5 shows how the propaganda narratives are shifting in the age of Trump. The game is set in Montana, a well-known hot spot for patriots as well as the home of the alt right’s most infamous provocateur Richard Spencer. The game’s villains appear to be an amalgamation of both groups. The cover image for the game depicts a “Last Supper” scene featuring bearded individuals who are crude stereotypes of militiamen with weapons and ammunition strewn about the table. They surround a dapper messiah figure with a hipster beard, presumably the leader of the flock, who looks as if he was modeled directly from right-wing blogger Gavin McInnes. Keep Reading

Milo Yiannopoulos To Lead Protest Against Pro-Sharia Speaker In New York City Tomorrow

Provocative conservative sensation Milo Yiannopoulos recently announced his official return and is already up to his usual antics. He will lead a demonstration tomorrow in New York City against radical Muslim apologist Linda Sarsour, who is scheduled to be a keynote speaker at CUNY in June. Yiannopoulos will be joined by New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind, anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller, patriot leader Kyle “Based Stickman” Chapman, and many others to give a counterbalance to Sarsour’s pro-Islamist point of view. “The left’s chokehold on the nation’s most powerful institutions continues, despite a Trump presidency and a Republican Congress, but this is a step too far. Sarsour being given the honor of commencement speaker is so malignant and so evil, it cannot be ignored. There is a responsibility for the time we are living in,” Geller wrote in a Breitbart editorial earlier this month about the protest. Keep Reading

Trump Administration Unveils The Most Libertarian Budget In History, But Will Congress Approve It?

Fiscally conservative critics of President Trump were shocked today as his first budget was announced. Trump’s budget office director, Mick Mulvaney unveiled a budget today that would cut $3.6 trillion in federal spending over the next decade. The only thing standing in the way of this libertarian budget is Congress. The Trump proposal may be too ambitious to be palatable for Congress. In spite of the Congress being dominated by Republican lawmakers, they have been reticent to making even the slightest of cuts to future government spending for many years. The GOP-dominated Congress even approved all of the Obama administration’s record spending. It remains doubtful that the legislature will approve Trump’s budget considering it would cut spending in areas that are still very popular to the electorate. Trump’s budget would cut at least $610 billion from Medicaid and more than $192 billion from food stamps over a decade, according to a Reuters report. Factoring in projected revenue increases, the budget would be balanced in 10 years as well. Trump’s… Keep Reading

The Military-Industrial Complex Cashes Out On Trump’s Saudi Weapons Deal

The big winners of the recent weapons deal that President Donald Trump brokered with Saudi Arabia appear to be the corporations serving the military-industrial complex. After the deal was announced, US defense contractors saw their stocks soar to record highs on Wall Street. Lockheed Martin was influential in setting up the deal with Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner lobbying their CEO directly. They stand to profit the most from the agreement. According to Yahoo News, Lockheed will provide missile and air defense, combat ships, tactical aircraft, and rotary wing technologies and programs to the tune of $28 billion. “We are proud to be part of this historic announcement that will strengthen the relationship between the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” Lockheed Martin Chairman and CEO Marillyn Hewson said.

Birther In The Beltway: Prominent Obama Critic Given White House Press Credentials

In the age of President Donald Trump, alternative media is being legitimized and validated like never before. This titanic shift is reflected in who is receiving White House press credentials. Jerome Corsi, a reporter who cast doubt on the legitimacy of President Obama’s birth certificate, will be covering the White House on behalf of Alex Jones’ Infowars. “In an epic blow to the mainstream media’s control of the narrative, Infowars has officially received White House Press Credentials that will allow Washington Bureau Chief Jerome Corsi to attend White House press briefings,” the official announcement stated. Corsi’s first briefing came earlier today with Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney. He brings over a decade of experience as a journalist. He had previously written for WorldNetDaily, but moved over to Infowars earlier this year to lead their new Washington, D.C. bureau. “I have to have a birth certificate. Of course, Barack Obama doesn’t,” Corsi said jokingly about the vetting process that he endured before being approved as a White… Keep Reading

North Korea Issues Demands, Orders Trump To Back Off As Precondition For Diplomacy

North Korea has issued an official response to President Donald Trump’s suggestion that he is open to talks “under certain circumstances.” The notoriously anti-American nation is open to meeting, but they have some preconditions of their own that the U.S. must follow to make it happen. “As everybody knows, the Americans have gestured [toward] dialogue,” North Korea’s Deputy UN Ambassador Kim In Ryong said on Friday as reported by Sky News. “But what is important is not words, but actions.” “The rolling back of the hostile policy towards DPRK is the prerequisite for solving all the problems in the Korean Peninsula,” Ryong said. “Therefore, the urgent issue to be settled on Korean Peninsula is to put a definite end to the US hostile policy towards DPRK, the root cause of all problems.” Keep Reading

Kushner’s Cronyism: Trump’s Son-in-Law Uses Corporate Connections To Secure Weapons For Saudis

The Trump administration is working diligently to make Saudi Arabia great again, having secured a weapons cache totaling over $100 billion for the Islamist kingdom. It was reported that Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and his influential advisor, called up the CEO of Lockheed Martin to secure the deal himself. The New York Times issued a report yesterday describing Kushner’s “personal touch” on a $110 billion weapons deal brokered at the behest of the Saudis. Kushner called Marillyn A. Hewson, chief executive of infamous defense contractor Lockheed Martin, to persuade her to lower the price tag for his Saudi cronies. “The Trump administration is expected to frame the deal, worth about $110 billion over 10 years, as a symbol of America’s renewed commitment to security in the Persian Gulf. But former officials pointed out that President Barack Obama, whose arms sales to Saudi Arabia totaled $115 billion, had already approved several of the weapons in the package,” the Times report stated.

Trump’s Budget Director Scrambles To Ready 4,000 Page Proposal For Next Week’s Deadline

Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, joked this week that President Trump’s first budget is “not for public consumption yet.” Mulvaney may not be joking for long, as he and his cohorts have less than a week to get the massive budget prepared for unveiling. “I have to go home and read 4,000 pages of budget,” Mulvaney said to a group of conservative legal minds at the Federalist Society on Wednesday, according to a Washington Examiner report. Mulvaney is undaunted by the gargantuan task of reviewing and preparing the budget that lies ahead of him. In fact, the Trump administration anticipating the release date for the budget to be this coming Tuesday. “I tell people all the time that we have forgotten what it’s like to live and work in a healthy American economy,” Mulvaney said. “If you’re here today and you’re 30 years old or younger, you really have never worked in a thriving U.S. economy — you’ve been through a recession or… Keep Reading

Thomas Massie: Push By Amash, Neocons, Democrats To Impeach Trump Is “Baloney”

While most Republicans are breathing a sigh of relief that FBI Director James Comey was relieved of his position, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is not among them. He has counteracted his traditional ally, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), to side with neoconservatives such as Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and demand an independent investigator to look into connections between Trump and Russia. Amash didn’t stop there. He has openly expressed his disdain for Trump, saying that he trusts Comey more than the President. He is even open to working with the Democrats on impeachment efforts if any revelations are uncovered. Amash’s concerns stem from Trump allegedly advising Comey to brush off an investigation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. While the possibility of nefarious behavior conducted by the President may trouble Amash, Massie summed up his colleague’s worries as “baloney.” Keep Reading

Donald Trump: Uh Oh, My Son-in-Law Jared Kushner Might Be Incompetent!

One of President Donald Trump’s most influential and powerful advisors is a member of his own family. His son-in-law, Jared Kushner was put at the helm of the new White House Office of American Innovation, and designated to work on criminal justice reform and other crucial tasks, but now Trump has apparently discovered a shocking secret about his daughter’s husband: He’s completely incompetent! “[President Trump’s] own mood, according to two advisers who spoke on the condition of anonymity, has become sour and dark, and he has turned against most of his aides — even his son-in-law, Jared Kushner — describing them in a fury as “incompetent,” according to one of those advisers,” a New York Times report claims.

Ted Cruz And Rand Paul Urge Republican Senate To End Obamacare By Going Nuclear

After the House failed to pass a clean repeal of Obamacare, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) are leading the charge for the GOP-dominated Senate to use all of the tools at their disposal to actually end Obamacare rather than replace it with new taxes, regulations and mandates. Politco has reported that Paul and Cruz are ready to throw decorum and long-standing established Senate rules out the window in order to fully repeal Obamacare. “The firebrands want to overturn long-standing precedent for what can be done under reconciliation, the fast-track budget process the GOP is using to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. They argue Republicans are allowing stale Senate norms to tie their hands and are forfeiting a chance to completely abolish the law,” the Politico article stated. Keep Reading

Trumpocalypse In The Making?: The President Weighs Axing Four Key Aides

President Donald Trump is getting restless. His agenda has stalled, his approval rating is cratering, and the Washington D.C. establishment won’t play ball. A report has indicated a serious shake-up is likely on its way, and many heads may roll. “The advice he’s getting is to go big — that he has nothing to lose,” a source close to Trump said, according to an Axios report. “The question now is how big and how bold. I’m not sure he knows the answer to that yet.” The report claims that possible Trump administration officials in line to receive the axe include Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, chief strategist Steve Bannon, counsel Don McGahn, and press secretary Sean Spicer, but everything is up for grabs. Trump is supposedly ready for a big change, and that means nobody is safe. “He’s frustrated, and angry at everyone,” one of Trump’s confidants said. Keep Reading

House Freedom Caucus Member Mo Brooks Announces Senate Run

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) is attempting to make the jump from the House over to the Senate. The ultra-conservative lawmaker officially kicked off his campaign today after making several pit stops throughout the state of Alabama. “America’s future is at risk because our country’s foundational principles are under daily attack,” Brooks said as reported by the Alabama Media Group. “Our republic is only as good as our elections process. America’s elections are threatened by those who support voter fraud and election theft by opposing voter identification laws while encouraging non-citizens to vote in American elections.” Brooks is competing for the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who left the Senate mid-term to serve in the Trump administration. Brooks will be competing against incumbent Senator Luther Strange, who was appointed to the seat back in February by former Gov. Robert Bentley. Bentley was forced to resign in disgrace following an embarrassing public sex scandal. He plead guilty to misdemeanor campaign-finance charges and resigned last month. His baggage may extend… Keep Reading

Alex Jones: My Radio Show Is a Trump-Free Zone!

Conspiracy-minded radio host Alex Jones has been under fire in recent weeks undergoing a series of messy public legal battles.
