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

Trump Administration Sides With Freedom Caucus To Oppose Paul Ryan’s Border Tax

Although the Trump administration and the House Freedom Caucus have been at odds this year, both factions are coming together against a new border tax. Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin met with the Freedom Caucus on Tuesday to give words of encouragement to the hardline conservative legislators. Mnunchin allegedly told members of the Freedom Caucus that the Trump administration is unwavering in its opposition to a border adjustment tax, according to sources obtained for an Axios report. The border adjustment tax is currently being floated by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI). On this issue, President Trump is apparently behind the Freedom Caucus 100 percent in opposition. “Secretary Mnuchin gave great insight into the thinking of the administration on tax reform,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said to Axios. Meadows is the current chairman of the Freedom Caucus. “We are well served by his leadership. It became apparent that there is a growing consensus in the administration that we must act soon to advance tax reform and BAT [the border adjustment tax]… 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. The Saudis have been committing bombing campaigns throughout Yemen for many years, specifically focusing on civilian targets. 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

Trump’s Pushy Approach Toward NATO Shows Member Countries Who Is Boss

President Donald Trump is not content to let other heads of state run roughshod over his authority. This fact was evident during yesterday’s gathering at the North American Treaty Organization (NATO) where Trump shoved other leaders aside and told them to pay up! 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 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

In Search Of Monsters

The Democrats in Washington D.C. have been loud about impeaching President Donald Trump for a six month period. It seems to be their one trick pony. In fact, those on the Left are even calling out the blatant obviousness. In an article published on CNBC, a columnist stated that: “Getting back to the Democrats, their entire agenda can now be summed up as: Impeachment, resignation or bust. They’ve put all their eggs in this basket. And if they fail, a lot of their voters will clearly ask what good the current leadership is if it can’t even oust a man so much of the Democratic base sees as nothing short of the devil.” It’s fair to study the constitutionality behind an impeachment and their claims for it. First, they invoke Article II Section 4 of the Constitution, which states: 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.

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

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

Sen. Rand Paul: Democrats “Should Be Thanking President Trump” For Firing James Comey

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is ecstatic with President Trump’s move to fire former FBI Director James Comey, and is calling out Democrats who bemoan Comey’s dismissal as partisan hypocrites. “I don’t think there’s been any facts presented that anybody broke the law. … I don’t think there’s any evidence that anybody broke the law,” Paul said while appearing on a “Fox & Friends” broadcast this morning. Democratic leaders such as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) have been forced to admit publicly that all efforts to find evidence of Trump colluding with Russian interests to unduly influence last year’s Presidential election have yielded nothing substantial. This has not stopped the Democrats from crying foul after Comey’s release though. “[Democrats] were for getting rid of Comey too, but now they’re gonna say it’s all about this Russia investigation, which hasn’t produced one iota of evidence,” Paul said. He called the talk of Russian involvement in last year’s election a “huge myth” fabricated to undermine the President. 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

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

“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!

The Civil War, Then And Now

One hundred and fifty-four years ago this week, nearly at the peak of the Civil War, General Robert E. Lee cemented his legacy in American history with his triumph over Union forces at the battle of Chancellorsville, a victory often referred to as a perfect battle. It is an example of how sangfroid and strategy and chutzpah and cunning have together the potential to overcome overwhelming odds. It was a disgraceful performance by the north’s General Joseph Hooker and it cost Lee his “right arm” in General Stonewall Jackson, who was killed by friendly fire on the second of May. It’s an episode in our history we should be reminded of often. They say history is written by the winners. General Lee may or may not be a hero and, in spite of his martial brilliance in Spotsylvania, Virginia, he was and will always be a loser. The Confederacy didn’t get to write the history books. Two months after his perfect battle, without his best general, and emboldened beyond… Keep Reading

BREAKING: Rep. Justin Amash Caves On Trumpcare, Votes ‘YES’ On AHCA

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has established himself as the face of the principled opposition against President Donald Trump within the Republican Party, but his health care vote suggests that he is softening his stance. The prominent “Never Trumper” cast an affirmative vote today for the American Health Care Act (AHCA), which passed. Although a roll call vote is currently unavailable, reporters such as Dean Clancy of the Hill and Cameron Joseph of the New York Daily News confirmed on Twitter that Amash is one of the lawmakers who voted for the legislation. Although Amash gave an impression that he was deliberating until the last minute about the vote, claims from prominent political figures cast doubt on his story. Haley Byrd of the Independent Journal Review tweeted this morning, “Labrador and Amash are chatting on the House floor. Labrador is a yes, Amash undecided. Labrador’s doing a lot of talking—Amash seems unsure.” The exchange between Labrador and Amash was likely little more than theatrics, with the votes already being decided… Keep Reading

Sen. Rand Paul On $1 Trillion Spending Bill: “Are Democrats Still The Minority Party?”

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is angry yet again at the conniving nature of his own political party. Congressional Republicans unveiled their omnibus spending bill this week, which appropriates over $1 trillion dollars in new spending. This gives a huge political victory to the Democrats, Paul claimed in his Breitbart op/ed published Tuesday. “You’ll see it in the news as an “Omnibus spending bill,” when it should really be called “the Status Quo Protection Act.” President Hillary Clinton would have been proud of this bill,” Paul said. “It tosses out campaign promises as it continues to fund the military industrial complex and the welfare state.” Under the new plan pushed by Republican congressional leaders such as Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the annual deficit would remain over $500 billion. Paul noted that mainstream media commentators have noted that the spending bill cannot be differentiated from Obama-era budgets, which were the most bloated in all of American history. Keep Reading

Inside The War Room: Steve Bannon’s White Board Reveals Trump’s Ambitious Agenda

President Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon posed for a photo op yesterday with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach in his infamous war room inside the White House. Giving a slight glimpse into how the White House is run behind the scenes, Bannon’s white board can be viewed in the background of the picture. Containing many ambitious goals pertaining to immigration in partial view, the white board makes it clear that border security is the focal point of Bannon’s work. Immigration pledges include tripling the number of ICE enforcement agents, suspending the Syrian refugee resettlement program, ending the controversial ‘catch-and-release’ policy, and hiring 5,000 more border patrol agents. Tasks that have been achieved were checkmarked while other promises have yet to be fulfilled. There are more pledges that were obfuscated from view in the picture, including an entire section related to health care that was barely visible in the shot. Reports regarding Bannon’s influence on President Trump have conflicted in recent weeks. It was believed that Bannon was the dog house after… Keep Reading

Sen. Rand Paul Comes Out In Favor Of President Trump’s Tax Plan

President Donald Trump officially announced his tax plan last week, and he will need some powerful allies in the legislature if he hopes to get it passed. He already has one in Kentucky Sen.

President Trump To Saudi Arabia: Time To Pay Your Fair Share!

Saudi Arabia has been a key strategic ally for the United States for many years, and President Donald Trump has been careful not to jeopardize that relationship. He approved a massive weapons deal with the Saudis and is carefully considering making a diplomatic visit to the country in the near future. However, Trump recently made it clear that this relationship must be a two-way street. “Frankly, Saudi Arabia has not treated us fairly, because we are losing a tremendous amount of money in defending Saudi Arabia,” Trump said in a Reuters interview last week. Previously, Trump had criticized Saudi Arabia on the campaign trail while running for President by expressing similar sentiments. Trump claimed that the Saudis were benefiting greatly from their privileged relationship with the United States, but the arrangement was not being properly reciprocated. “Nobody’s going to mess with Saudi Arabia because we’re watching them,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Wisconsin last year. “They’re not paying us a fair price.

Sen. Mike Lee To Trump: Quit Funneling Taxpayer Money To George Soros!

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) has been very vocal in his criticisms of President Trump, going back to the dysfunctional campaign season that put Trump at bitter odds with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Now, Lee is trying to warn Trump that taxpayer funds are being funneled directly into the pockets of his sworn enemies. “Whatever one’s views about abortion, energy regulation, alternative family structures, they are neither core international priorities of the American people, nor essential to American national security. They are domestic political controversies, pet causes of a sort of privileged, globalist elite,” Lee said in a speech at The Heritage Foundation this week. Sen. Lee and Trump were at odds for the greater part of 2016. Lee, a top proponent of Sen. Cruz’ presidential campaign last year, was one of the main people leading the charge against Trump on the floor of last year’s contentious Republican National Convention. Since then, tensions have eased and both men are focused on similar goals. Keep Reading

The First One Hundred Days Is a Meaningless Metric

The first one hundred days of a new president’s presidency is a media gimmick created by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1933. I’ll skip right to the important part: It was a crock of shit then and it’s an even bigger crock of shit now. It’s an artifice meant to distract from more important things, such as the fact that the effects of policy-making often do not become evident until long after they are implemented. It took years for the deregulation of craft brewing to reap dividends and when it did Reagan’s economy took credit while Carter pounded sand. Like many (maybe most) bad ideas, NAFTA seemed like a good one at the time. The War on Drugs was supposed to usher in a utopia of peaceful streets and whole families; some forty years later it is an obvious failure built on lies. The point is, setting policy – good or bad – is a process, not an event. Roosevelt’s media gimmick is a snapshot of a bigger picture with… Keep Reading

President Trump Stands Firm On Trade, Promises NAFTA Overhaul

President Donald Trump has been admonished by his supporters due to a bevy of broken campaign promises, but on the crucial issue of trade, he has not wavered.

But we’re going to give renegotiation a good, strong shot.” Reports circulated earlier in the week that Trump was preparing to sign an executive order to remove the United States from NAFTA immediately, similar to how he terminated American involvement in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in January.

It has been a tumultuous start to Trump’s Presidency as the inexperienced outsider adjusts to life in Washington DC, but Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is impressed with what he has seen thus far.

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has been called a right-wing firebrand, a tea party favorite, and even a white nationalist for his role in creating the Trump presidency.

United Nations Appoints Islamic Dictatorship To Women’s Rights Commission

The United Nations (UN) is showing their commitment to the ongoing struggle for women’s rights throughout the world by including an Islamic dictatorship on their Commission on the Status of Women. They recently announced that Saudi Arabia would be added to the body. The UN had previously made the Saudi Arabian ambassador, Faisal bin Hassan Trad the head of a key human rights panel a couple years back. This outraged watchdog groups, but the UN was oblivious to those concerns and apparently considers Saudi Arabia to be a crucial vanguard for human rights for their organization. Saudi Arabia is an undemocratic Wahabbist kingdom whose leaders believe in a strict interpretation of the Koran. “Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, in a public statement. “It’s absurd.” According to a Human Rights Watch report released in late 2015, women are not permitted on the streets of Saudi Arabia unless they are accompanied… Keep Reading

Trump Rebukes Italian Prime Minister, Calls For No U.S. Intervention In Libya

Although Trump has already bombed Syria and is posturing aggressively on Iran and North Korea, recent comments indicate that he will be taking a less militarist stance on Libya.

Antifa Cowards Meet Their Match

Newton’s Third Law of physics states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Though commonly understood to apply to physical interactions between objects in action, this law is as true in boxing and baseball as it is in politics. Midterm elections are often a down-ballot repudiation of a president and ruling party’s policy initiatives. This accounts for the Democratic Party’s drubbings in 2010 and 2014. It accounts for the humiliating dressing down they received at the hands of the forgotten men and women of the American electorate in November of last year. It accounts for the vehement violence perpetrated by the Antifa pawns of George Soros and other more ambiguous movers and shakers in the elite echelons of the “progressive” power structure.

Conservative journalist Mike Cernovich had previously warned that McMaster, in league with the disgraced former CIA Director David Petraeus, was pushing for sending as many as 150,000 conventional forces to Syria. Bannon believes that this would create a “new Iraq war” and has derided McMaster to his colleagues for his proposal. Keep Reading

Neocon Elliott Abrams To Trump: Remove Steve Bannon From White House!

The neoconservatives are once again emboldened after Trump’s military strike on Syria last week. Former George W. Bush advisor Elliott Abrams is offering some unsolicited advice for President Trump: Dump Steve Bannon as chief political strategist. “He’s not a good influence on the president,” Abrams said to a reporter during a Politico interview. He apparently smiled ear-to-ear while discussing the prospects of Bannon’s removal. Furthermore, he is a firm proponent of Jared Kushner’s increased influence in the White House. Kushner is Trump’s son-in-law and the head of the new White House Office of American Innovation. Keep Reading

Despite Missile Strikes, Trump Administration Claims Syrian Policy Is Unchanged

In the wake of President Trump’s missile strikes in Syria, many observers are alarmed over the possibility of the United States being involved in another full-blown war. However, the Trump Administration is indicating that this strike is more of an isolated incident than a substantiative change of policy. “I would not in any way attempt to extrapolate that to a change in our policy or posture relative to our military activities in Syria today. There has been no change in that status,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said. “I think it does demonstrate that President Trump is willing to act when governments and actors cross the line and cross the line on violating commitments they’ve made and cross the line in the most heinous of ways.” Keep Reading

Neocons Gloat After President Trump Bombs Syria To Weaken Assad Regime

Neoconservatives could not be happier after President Trump bombed Syria last night in a retaliatory measure against President Bashir Al-Assad for alleged chemical attacks that were released on video for the world to see. “This is the challenge of Bashar al-Assad and then we’ve also got ISIS, so we’ve also got ISIS so we’ve got a long way to go,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said to MSNBC. “But, the signal that was sent last night is a very, very important one.” McCain wasn’t the only neocon jubilant with the prospect of more war. His great friend and fellow militarist Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was also delighted with Trump’s unauthorized and extrajudicial military strikes. “Unlike the previous administration, President Trump confronted a pivotal moment in Syria and took action. For that, he deserves the support of the American people,” Graham said in a press release. He went on to champion further measures that would decimate the Assad regime, and create a situation similar to what occurred after American intervention in… Keep Reading

Sen. Rand Paul To Susan Rice: “Testify Under Oath” On Trump Spying Allegations

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is calling for former National Security Advisor Susan Rice to “testify under oath“ after reports broke indicating that she used her power to spy on President Trump’s associates during campaign season. “I don’t think we should discount how big a deal it was that Susan Rice was looking at these, and she needs to be asked, did President Obama ask her to do this? Was this a directive from President Obama? I think she ought to testify under oath on this,” Paul said, according to a Hill report. “I think she should be asked under oath, did she reveal it to the Washington Post.” Keep Reading

Sen. Rand Paul Talks Health Care Compromise After Golf Outing With Trump

After completing a widely publicized golf outing with President Trump, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is moderating his stance regarding the full repeal of Obamacare. Instead of demanding for subsidies to be fully repealed, Paul indicated that he would settle for a mere reduction in subsidies to make a passable bill. “I think the compromise could be keeping some of the underlying payments in Obamacare, some small percentage of them, in order to placate the people who want that, but not affirmatively putting it in the bill,” Paul said. “Conservatives want 100 percent repeal, let’s say moderates want 80 percent repeal. Let’s vote on 90 percent repeal and be done with it.” Keep Reading

Donald Trump Is No Conman

Since the beginning of his campaign to become President of the United States, Donald Trump has been accused of being a fraud. He is, according to the Left and the Never Trump movement, a conman. One of the most outlandish theories to date has been that he was deliberately self-destructing both himself and the Republican Party to help his old-crone crony, Hillary Clinton. For a time – a short time – I thought there might be something to the theory. I have since reformed myself and come to grips with reality. Not everyone is as smart as I am. The authenticity of his aspirations is unmistakable to the millions who voted for him, but the sincerity of his determination to Drain the Swamp and Make America Great Again is called into question every day by both common folk who vote for anyone with a D next to their name and the professional big mouths of the pundit/propaganda class. When President Trump told Jim Acosta at a fiery press conference… Keep Reading

Liberalism As a Blind Faith Religion

In the book of Hebrews, chapter eleven verse one, the Bible defines faith as being the substance of hope in things unseen. Those of us who are skeptical of the claims found in supposedly holy texts know that this is only half correct; in addition to hope in things unseen, religious faith is the denial of that which can be seen. The evidence for a godless universe is abundant and has brought us to a day and age in which the concept of a supernatural creator may be dismissed with a quick reference to Occam’s infamous razor: The God Theory is no longer necessary to explain the origin of the universe and its innumerable contents. Religion may be useful to its adherents for a great many things – a moral foundation, community, etc – but as far as answering the biggest questions about our world and the cosmos, it’s been weighed and measured and found wanting. And yet, the blind faith in a personal supreme being persists. The point… Keep Reading

After Failing On Health Care, President Trump Transforms Into “John Kasich Republican”

The past week has not been encouraging for freedom lovers and liberty-minded individuals who hope to work with President Trump. Trump has effectively thrown the House Freedom Caucus under the bus after they refused to pass unpopular health care legislation. The American Health Care Act (AHCA) was the baby of House Speaker Paul Ryan. It was crafted in back rooms, saved most of the harmful anti-market provisions within Obamacare, and would have put the GOP on the hook for the impending disaster. Trump should be thanking the House Freedom Caucus for helping to torpedo this mess. Instead, Trump has waged war against them. Keep Reading

Rep. Louie Gohmert: AHCA Would Make Trump a “Fraud” And “Destroy His Administration”

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) provided some unique insight in how the ongoing conflict between the Freedom Caucus formed during a recent appearance on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo, a FOX News program. Gohmert explained that it was establishment figures close to the President who got in his ear and told him to take a hard-line approach against the Freedom Caucus for refusing to support the American Health Care Act (AHCA). He explained exactly what took place behind the scenes. “The President agreed with us twice, and each time Priebus and Ryan said, ‘No, no, no, you can’t do that.’ He wanted to make a deal, he was ready to make a deal, and we were negotiating with Paul and Kevin McCarthy right up through Tuesday, and all of a sudden, they had a meeting and they decided we are so close to having the number we need, let’s… get the President to help us go to war with the people that defended the President when Ryan and those… Keep Reading

Trump’s Social Media Director Threatens Rep. Justin Amash With Primary Challenge

Leftist Academic Noam Chomsky Pushes Baseless Anti-Trump Conspiracy Theories

Leftist academic Noam Chomsky is a staunch critic of American imperialism and corporatism, but that still didn’t stop him from endorsing Hillary Clinton for President last year. Having failed in his Hillary advocacy, Chomsky is resorting to the conspiracy mongering that he has frequently derided throughout his career as a fear-mongering ploy against President Trump. “In order to maintain his popularity, the Trump administration will have to try to find some means of rallying the support and changing the discourse from the policies that they are carrying out, which are basically a wrecking ball, to something else… We shouldn’t put aside the possibility that there would be some kind of staged or alleged terrorist act, which can change the country instantly,” Chomsky said in a recent interview with AlterNet.

Back To Iraq: President Trump Deploys Troops For “Temporary” Presence In Mosul

The Trump Administration is escalating its presence in Northern Iraq to include over 300 additional U.S. troops from the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division in an attempt to beat back the presence of ISIS in the city. The move is slated to be temporary, but no timeline for withdrawal has been given. A Mar. 27 Military Times report on the escalation stated, “The paratroopers comprise two infantry companies and a route-clearance platoon from the division’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team, according to a U.S. defense official, who spoke to Military Times on the condition of anonymity.” They were scheduled to depart for their mission yesterday.
