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

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

Rendering Onto Caesar: Why Trump Supporters Should Allow Leftists To Watch The Play

William Shakespeare lived in a time and place where writing about politics could get him into serious trouble. Queen Elizabeth was his biggest fan and patron so he was careful never to anything bad about her. The Bard had to walk a fine line when it came to contemporary politics, but he had more creative freedom when he wrote about the distant past. His play, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, was a story about Marcus Brutus, a friend of Julius Caesar who ultimately would betray him. Cassius Longinus, a Roman senator, convinces Brutus that Caesar is becoming too powerful. Brutus ultimately comes to the decision that murdering Caesar would be in Rome′s best interests. However, this was not the case. Civil war broke out after the death of Caesar, and Cassius and Brutus were forced to kill themselves. Keep Reading

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

Wei Qi In The Persian Gulf

Amidst increasingly heinous accusations of Russian election interference, growing dissidence amongst the domestic United States, and the ever-enduring Rodman-Kim romance saga hailed as soft diplomacy, President Trump finds himself beset on all sides by both danger and opportunity. None are more apparent than the growing regional tensions in the Persian Gulf. To achieve an early-term masterstroke of foreign policy acumen, Trump will not find success in playing the conventional role, but in playing wei qi. Let’s rewind a bit: On June 5, 2017, a joint action was issued by Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Yemen, Libya, and the Maldives to sever diplomatic ties with the small gulf-state of Qatar. The move was, at surface level, taken with shock considering the active role that the Qatari military played in Saudi Arabia’s coalition intervening in the Yemeni Civil War. Most would view this as the first piece on the board. However, Qatar had begun encirclement far before the Saudi’s could have caught on. Keep Reading

Trump Fends Off “Showboat” Comey And The Federal Zombies

He pleaded the case of a loyal soldier, rather than forsake retired US Army lieutenant general Michael Flynn to the mercies of FBI director James Comey. And he asked for loyalty from the congenitally disloyal. You’ll agree: President Donald Trump is being indicted on technicalities and on personal style. Distill the president’s unremarkable actions, subject to a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, and it becomes clear that the establishment—for sensible people outside the beltway have dissociated from the Russia-collusion phantasmagoria—is indicting him on the plain, impolitic speech that catapulted Donald Trump from candidate to president. Trump is “aggressive and oblivious to the rules of engagement,” fumed CNN’s sibilant Chris Cillizza, formerly of the Washington Post. Correct. But was the language of combat you deployed, Mr. Cillizza, a Freudian slip? 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

Trump Allies Set To Play Key Role In New British Government

Thursday’s general election in the United Kingdom, although a total disaster for the British Prime Minister Theresa May, will undoubtedly be seen as good news by President Donald Trump. The Conservative Party lost its majority in the House of Commons, forcing it to seek support from the socially conservative and deeply patriotic Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) from Northern Ireland. The DUP quickly agreed, signing a confidence and supply agreement to prop up the Conservatives providing their demands are met. The DUP has often been accused by the left of having ties to right-wing militias such as the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) and the Red Hand Commando (RHC). Although the DUP initially begin as a sectarian Protestant party, its strong stance on abortion and gay marriage has garnered support from traditionalist Catholics in recent years. 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

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.

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. He will go to Ohio on Wednesday to gin up support for his plan to improve dams and lock systems. On Friday, Trump will head to the Department of Transportation where he will lobby the bureaucracy to cut red tape by expediting the approval time for changes in roads, railways, and regulations. While there will certainly be an aspect of government involvement in this infrastructure plan, tax breaks and public-private partnerships will be emphasized in an attempt to bring down the costs to the taxpayer. “It doesn’t matter who you are, whether you are farmer in the Midwest, or a mother driving your kids… Keep Reading

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

Trump Keeps Campaign Promise: Puts Voters In Pittsburgh Before Foreigners In Paris

Today, Donald Trump announced that the United States would be leaving the Paris Accord. In doing so, he kept one of his key campaign promises to the American people. Trump explained that the Paris Accord had a terrible impact upon jobs in America. Under the accord, the United States would lose much of its clean coal production. However, countries like China would be allowed to grow their coal production. Trump said that the Paris Accord was exporting American jobs overseas. Trump also stated that the Paris Accord was completely unfair to America. He said that billions of dollars would be transferred from the United States and sent to foreign countries. These foreign countries that are benefited by the outgoing foreign dollars are countries that have extremely aggressive trade policies against the United States and do not participate in the global war on terror.

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. Paul’s concerns mainly stem from the Islamic dictatorship’s ongoing war in Yemen.

It is expected that the weapons being funneled to the Saudis through this agreement will aid in these vicious war crimes. That is what Paul wants to bring to an end. 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.

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.

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

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. Jones is under so much heat that he has even warned his close ally, President Donald Trump to stay off his radio show! “The truth is I told the president — I’m like, “Down the road some time, once we’ve got the big agenda through, please come on.” And he’s like, “How about soon? how about, yeah, I want to come on. How about next week?” “Sir, I’m not sure that would be good. I’ve said a lot of things — a lot of things out of context. I’m just not sure about that.” He just paused. See. See how that works? It isn’t about me. It’s about victory,” Jones said on his radio broadcast recorded May 12. Keep Reading

Libertarian Lawmakers Criticize Trump Administration’s Support Of Mandatory Minimum Policies

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) are up in arms after Attorney General Jeff Sessions released sentencing guidelines last week indicating his favor of mandatory minimum sentences that were being phased out by the Obama administration. The two libertarian lawmakers have been long-time advocates for criminal justice reform. They feel that the Trump Administration under Sessions is clearly headed in the wrong direction on this particular policy, which will only serve to clog the prisons further while doing little to prevent crime. “Mandatory minimum sentences have unfairly and disproportionately incarcerated too many minorities for too long,” Paul said in a press release. “Attorney General Sessions’ new policy will accentuate that injustice. Instead, we should treat our nation’s drug epidemic as a health crisis and less as a ‘lock ‘em up and throw away the key’ problem.” Amash concurred with Paul’s statement. He said the following in a Twitter post from May 12, “Let’s pass criminal justice reform to put an end to this unjust, ineffective, and… Keep Reading

Rep. Amash Flirts With Conspiracy Theories, Suggests New Investigation Over Trump’s Russian Ties

Suspecting some sort of nefarious cover-up or conspiracy, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is looking into investigating President Trump’s ties to Russia after he publicly fired former FBI Director James Comey yesterday. “My staff and I are reviewing legislation to establish an independent commission on Russia. The second paragraph of this letter is bizarre,” Amash said in a May 9 tweet. Amash took umbrage with the following words from Trump’s dismissal letter to Comey. It reads, “While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to affectively lead the bureau.” Amash is jumping on the Trump/Russia conspiracy bandwagon just as prominent Democrats are admitting that there is no evidence indicating that any wrongdoing occurred. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) were forced to own up to the fact that their prolonged wild goose chase is backed by zero evidence. Keep Reading

Rep. Massie: Trumpcare “Falls Far Short” Of GOP Promises To Repeal Obamacare

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is not afraid to go against the grain. He opposed Trump, the House GOP leadership, and even his common allies in the House Freedom Caucus by voting against the American Health Care Act (AHCA). He would not buckle under the pressure, and despite its passage by a narrow margin, Massie is not backing down. “We voted on a health-care bill for which the text was available only a few hours before the vote,” Massie said in a Highland County Press op/ed. “In fact, the Congressional Budget Office had no time to even provide Congress with a preliminary estimate of the full cost of this bill.” Massie was joined by 20 Republican legislators who voted against the revised version of the AHCA. Most of the legislators who voted against the AHCA were moderates who felt the measure went too far in repealing Obamacare. Alongside Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Massie was one of the few who voted against the bill because they… Keep Reading

What Sounds More Radical: “Tea Party” Or “The Resistance”?

Given the rhetoric of conservative activists and Republican officials during the 2008 presidential campaign, it was clear that the opposition to President Barack Obama would be strong. At the time, the rhetoric often spoke of unprecedented socialism and the idea that America would be forever changed. Obama was seen as more than just a liberal or a progressive, he was a devout socialist with numerous ties to dangerous radicals to his opponents. After Obama took office, a movement of conservatives and libertarians would rise from the ashes of a defeated cause. Despite failing to stop Obama in 2008, these activists and concerned Americans would not give up. The result was a movement of people known as the “Tea Party.” The name is derived from the original Boston Tea Party during the American Revolutionary period, where demonstrators dressed up as Native Americans and dumped tea into Boston Harbor.

As The White House Turns: Comey Is History, McMaster Is Reportedly On The Outs

It’s never a dull moment in the Trump White House. As rival factions within the administration continue to butt heads, the casualties are beginning to mount. Embattled FBI Director James Comey was officially relieved of his duties today, and if tensions continue to mount, national security advisor H.R. McMaster may be the next to get the axe. “While I appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation,” Trump wrote in a public letter addressed to Comey informing him that he was terminated. “I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau.” Trump’s decision was accompanied by a public statement from Attorney General Jeff Sessions laying out the groundwork for Comey’s immediate dismissal. If reports can be believed, McMaster’s days may be numbered within the Trump administration. A Bloomberg report indicates that although Washington D.C. loves McMaster, Trump is quickly souring on the man. Keep Reading

Thoughts On The Reagan Years And Trump

With all the talk of Trump abandoning his campaign promises (and I’m certainly upset about that myself), and the diminishing fervor for the “god emperor,” there’s another right-wing “sacred cow” that I would like to take down a few pegs, and that’s one that Mr. Trump himself mentioned idealistically in one of his speeches. Namely… Can we all just admit Ronald Reagan was a pretty crappy president? I don’t know, maybe it’s just because I’m, by my own admission, something of a “disgruntled liberal” whose views gradually turned rightward after being disillusioned with liberalism, but having noticed that mainstream American conservatism is turning more towards a paleoconservative slant (or rather, it was supposed to with the election of Trump), I still don’t get why Reagan is treated with kid gloves, and I want to address why nobody sees this. What is it about President Reagan that made him such a conservative icon—indeed, what made him so conservative at all? Keep Reading

White House Nationalists Strike Back Against Suspected Globalist Plant H.R. McMaster

Reports of President Trump’s disillusionment with White House national security advisor H.R McMaster have led nationalists and populists within the administration to push to reclaim lost influence over foreign affairs, unnamed White House sources claimed this week. President Trump’s frustrations with his national security advisor–the replacement of the iconoclastic Michael Flynn–were said to have reached a boiling point yesterday morning, with the President screaming at McMaster over his attempts to override President Trump and conduct diplomacy as if he were the Commander-in-Chief. McMaster supposedly guaranteed South Korea that the United States would pay for a complicated missile defense system for the Pacific nation. Trump himself had raised that prospect into question at an earlier date, as he appeared skeptical over the idea of giving billions of dollars to one of the world’s most highly developed and richest countries. McMaster earlier sought to neutralize the influence of White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon by arranging his removal from the National Security Council. This accomplished a well-known objective of neoconservatives and other… Keep Reading

“Resign Now!”: Roger Stone Slams Steve Bannon For Incompetence, Lack Of Fashion Sense

Trump’s long-time confidant, Roger Stone is not happy with what is going on in his great friend’s administration. A self-described libertarian, Stone is angry that the Trump administration is swaying from its “America First” mandate. He has isolated a peculiar target for his ire: White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. Bannon is seen as the primary voice for nationalism within the Trump administration, but his work has not pleased Stone. Stone went on a Twitter rampage against the publisher turned political oracle last week criticizing his organizational ability, his lack of competency, his poor dressing ability, and claiming he is apart of the problem for his inability to keep Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner at bay. “@StevenKBannon Resign Now! You refuse to confront @jaredkushner – u (sic) are part of the problem not part of the solution,” Stone said in a May 5 Tweet. Stone followed it up by saying, “@BreitbartNews perhaps if poorly dressed @StevenKBannon got off his dead, disorganized incompetent ass.” Keep Reading

France Votes For Cultural Suicide

The suspense is over. Marine Le Pen, the so-called “far-right” nationalist seeking to win the French presidency, has been defeated by EU suck-up sycophant Emmanuel Macron. The French voters were given a stark choice between the centrist Macron and the populist Le Pen: Continue following the path of cultural suicide – all the while expecting a long promised emergence of enrichment – or follow the path of drastic measures commensurate with the task of managing drastic times. The French chose cultural suicide, proving that things obviously haven’t gotten bad enough in their country to trigger their national survival instinct. Maybe they don’t have one or they did and lost their way under the leadership of unctuous elitists in Brussels. One way or the other, it seems the French threshold for self-inflicted suffering is as strong as many in the west had feared. Or perhaps they were successfully swayed by former Celebrity-in-Chief Barack Obama who interjected himself into their politics at the last minute. Keep Reading
