Paul Manafort: Political Prisoner Of The Deep State

Paul Manafort, the long-time lobbyist and GOP operative who briefly led Donald Trump’s campaign for president last year, surrendered himself to FBI headquarters today. Special investigator Bob Mueller is likely trying to make an example of Manafort to coerce him into turning on his former boss. According to a New York Times report, the particular charges are unclear at this time. In addition to Manafort, Rick Gates turned himself in as well. Gates and Manafort are long-time business associates, and Gates’ name was found in documents believed by investigators to show wrongdoing. “Gates became a point of interest in the… Keep Reading

Recent Dossier Revelations Show Democrats To Be Hypocrites On Foreign Influence

The narrative has been fairly consistent since businessman Donald Trump was elected to the White House. At best, he was boosted by a foreign government and his inner associates may have sought the help of the Russians. At worst, the President himself could be compromised. These are very real concerns Democrats have had for months. News such as Donald Trump Jr. meeting with Russian officials to gain dirt on Hillary Clinton provoked national outrage. The mainstream media lost its mind as prominent Democratic politicians and progressive activists all sounded the alarm. Regardless of whether Trump Jr’s move was right or… Keep Reading

House Committees Set To Probe Uranium One Deal

New life has been breathed into the topic of the Uranium One deal, which originally took place under the Obama Administration. This comes after The Hill broke news about a Russian plot involving an American uranium trucking firm. Through bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering, Russia aimed to grow influence within the United States. Though a violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, charges were not brought and it was quietly investigated for years. During this time frame, a number of major decisions were made by the Obama Administration. In 2010, the State Department approved the sale of Uranium One to Russian nuclear… Keep Reading

Report: Mike Pence Backs Assange Pardon Effort

Vice President Mike Pence has backed efforts by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) to secure a presidential pardon for dissident Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, according to a report by Chuck Johnson of GotNews. Pence also allegedly confirmed that President Donald Trump had seen one of Rohrabacher’s televised appearances, where the California Congressman discussed his communication with Assange, and was sympathetic to the effort. In late September, the President claimed he had “never heard [the prospect of a deal with Assange] mentioned”. Keep Reading

We Have To Stop Fighting The Russia-Trump Probe

Recently, new and damning revelations have surfaced in the Robert Mueller inquiry into the alleged Russia-Trump collusion during the 2016 election. Undeniably, many on the right and the left are in shock at the level of depth Mueller and his team prosecutors have gone to unravel the mystery. In essence, they are asking the questions of “what happened,” “who,” and “why?” With this in mind, many on the right—especially in Trump’s base—need to accept the fact that the investigation is reaching an unprecedented level after the allegations of Russian-linked tinkering in the 2016 election were revealed. Yes, it is drawn… Keep Reading

Actor Participating In Anti-Trump Propaganda Video Was Accused Of Incest

Iconic Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman appeared in a propaganda film released this week propagating neo-McCathyist lies against President Trump and Russia to delegitimize last year’s election results. Considering the man’s checkered past, it is no surprise that he would embark on such a disreputable campaign. Freeman was accused years ago of having a bizarre incestuous relationship with his now deceased step grand-daughter. Back in 2009, Freeman failed his wife, Myrna, and was in the process of abandoning their relationship of 25 years. Many outlets reported that he left Myrna to become romantically involved with E’Dena Hines, Freeman’s step grand-daughter who… Keep Reading

President Donald Trump was ridiculed mercilessly by the mainstream media after he declared that he was wiretapped by his predecessor in the lead-up to his epic electoral showdown with Hillary Clinton last year. “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” Trump exclaimed on Twitter back on Mar. 4, setting off a firestorm of predictable liberal outrage over the supposed recklessness of the young President.

Citing Iran Fears, Israel Quietly Lobbied Against Syrian Ceasefire Agreement

Hailed as an early diplomatic achievement for President Trump, he announced a ceasefire in Syria with Russian President Vladimir Putin last month. This is likely to stop ISIS and other Islamic radicals from overthrowing Syrian President Bashir al-Assad. However, the state of Israel lobbied against the agreement, fearing that it would embolden their Iranian enemies. According to a Haaretz report, Israel, the United States and Russia were involved in secret deliberations before the ceasefire was finalized last month. During those deliberations, Israel lobbied aggressively against the agreement citing that it would strengthen the Iranian regime. Israel’s primary foreign policy goal… Keep Reading

Justin Amash Defends His Record During Contentious Town Hall Meetings

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has never been afraid to meet his constituents face-to-face and discuss the hard issues, even with the political system as bitter and divided as it has ever been. Amash was happy to defend his positions during two town hall events last week, even on particularly contentious topics like military policy and his frequent clashes with President Trump. Amash received some flak from the audience for his ‘no’ vote against the “Make America Secure” Appropriations Act. Combined with his ‘no’ votes against Trump-backed immigration measures, this has caused many Republicans to question Amash’s motives. Nevertheless, Amash stands… Keep Reading

Trump Clashes With Pelosi Over “Clearly Unconstitutional” Russian Sanctions

Congress is dead set against making America great again, and they prove it time after time. Most recently, they overwhelmingly passed a bill to place sanctions on Russia and hamstring the President into complying with them against his better judgment. Although Trump signed the bill into law, he expressed his dismay through a signing statement. “While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed,” Trump said in the statement. “In its haste to pass this legislation, the Congress included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions.”… Keep Reading

It is said, cold-bloodedly, that JFK died in the most romantic and, based on what was to come for the remainder of the 1960s, fortunate way possible. For his death bathed his image in golden lights that did not cling to him while he lived, and allowed him to miss the consequences of many of his actions, particularly with regard to his hawkish stance on Vietnam.

Trump’s Foreign Policy Is Jeopardized After Senate Approves Sanctions Against Russia

Congress is seemingly intent on doing just about anything in their power to stop President Trump from making America great again.

On Russia Sanctions, Only Three Republican Legislators Stand Courageously With Trump

When President Donald Trump complained recently about how few prominent Republicans had his back, he was not kidding.

Fox News host and ratings kingpin Tucker Carlson orchestrated a stunning takedown of two neoconservative pundits on back-to-back nights over the topic of Russia.

Peters in particular proved beholden to grandiose moral equivocations. He informed Carlson that he “sounded like Charles… Keep Reading

To this day, anti-anti-communists from the Cold War period and their tenured academic counterparts scoff at the idea that Soviet communists liquidated their American agents on US soil.

The War On Trump: A Guide For Conservatives, Libertarians & Liberals

Periodically, America experiences episodes of mass, hysterical contagion. What is “hysterical contagion”? A sociologist explains it as the spread of symptoms of an illness among a group, absent any physiological disease. It provides a way of coping with a situation that cannot be handled with the usual coping mechanism. For example, in 1983, girls in the West Bank fell ill, one after the other. Soon, all the schools and finally the entire community was engulfed, affected with the same symptoms. Arab doctors implicated the Israelis. But of course.
