Senator Ted Cruz Comes Out Against Cassidy-Graham, Says Mike Lee Is With Him!

Republicans currently are mounting a last minute effort to ram through any legislation attacking the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but it isn’t going so well. Moderates and constitutional conservatives are both souring on the legislation, and its chances of passage have never looked worse. As is the story with previous attempts, moderates are concerned it goes too far and conservatives feel it hasn’t gone far enough toward repealing Obamacare. The big tent is not helping the GOP make America great again. Republicans have little room for loss and have already lost too much. Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and… Keep Reading

Senator Rand Paul Is Once Again Right To Oppose Obamacare Lite

Republicans have pledged for several years to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. It has been a rallying cry for most members in a party that rally comes together under one unifying message. Yet for all these years of rhetoric, Republicans have failed to follow through in the several months they’ve had control of Congress and the White House. The failure has been often blamed by opponents of the repeal measures, as it is now. The Graham-Cassidy Bill, a nickname for the current repeal effort being spearheaded by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill… Keep Reading

Stop Shopping Until You Drop. Or Until A Terrorist Drops You

“Another attack in London by a loser terrorist,” tweeted President Trump. “These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard.” Prime Minister Theresa May and the mad media fumed over the president’s insinuation that the Parsons Green “bucket bomber” was a “Known Wolf,” and not a lone wolf. But Donald Trump was entirely on the mark. May and her men knew Yahyah Farroukh (whose information the British press is protecting). The “Known Wolf,” left free to hunt for prey, is the rule more than the exception in a country, Britain, that will do nothing to… Keep Reading

US Success Against ISIS In Syria Comes With Steep Human Cost

In Raqqa, Syria, the US military and allied forces are advancing rapidly against ISIS. They estimate that the ISIS forces remaining in the city are between 500 and 900, down sharply from the totals in June. With Donald Trump replacing Barack Obama as US President, terrorists no longer have a safe haven in Syria and other parts of the Middle East. “We have almost completed our job – Daesh (ISIS) now only controls less than 15 per cent of Raqqa,” said Haval Kané, a warrior with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), said to The Sun. “They are holding out in… Keep Reading

The Graham-Cassidy Bill Is Effectively Dead

Republicans are down to the wire in making a last ditch effort to tear down the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. But like all the times before, it appears as though the latest GOP incarnation of Obamacare Lite will fall short in Congress. Despite last minute efforts to save the legislation crafted by Senators Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), the votes aren’t there. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has been a defiant voice against the legislation for some time now, labeling it Obamacare Lite and Obamacare 2.0.

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.

President Trump Bets On Big Loser, Cannot Fill Seats In Alabama For Luther Strange Rally

Once again, President Donald Trump was played for a sap by the GOP establishment. After endorsing Sen. Mitch McConnell’s crony Luther Strange against his hard-right constitutional challenger last month, Trump is now planning to stump for Strange this Friday. There is only one problem though: Nobody is showing up to hear Trump’s doublespeak. White House officials told Breitbart News that they are having trouble filling up a large venue on behalf of Strange, the establishment crony who was appointed to his position in the U.S. Senate by disgraced former Gov. Robert Bentley. Organizers are downsizing to a smaller venue than… Keep Reading

President Trump Offers Nothing But Hot Air For His Disingenuous UN Speech

President Donald Trump gave an “America First” speech in front of the United Nations today, speaking out in favor of national sovereignty, deriding the evils of socialism and communism, and calling for other countries to contribute more for global security. However, examining Trump’s record against his rhetoric shows that his speech today consisted of mostly hot air. “As President of the United States, I will always put America first, just like you, as the leaders of your countries will always, and should always, put your countries first,” Trump said toward the beginning of his speech.

Individuals expecting carnage yesterday as Trump supporters and fans of the cult rap music act, Insane Clown Posse–nicknamed Juggalos–descended upon Washington D.C. came away very disappointed.

The Juggalo March commenced without any real disruptions, garnering a great deal of positive press coverage, and making the point abundantly clear that the FBI’s ‘gang’ label of the group is wholly unwarranted.

Michael Chabon Chastises Jews Who Support Trump

An enviable quote from Ernest Hemingway was that writers must put their ideology and positions on hold when sitting down at the typewriter. Otherwise, one was violating the craft. Hemingway was referring to a specific genre of writing; that of fiction.

Why Do Presidents Need To Visit National Disaster Sites?
