    ACORN’s tactics live on in the senator’s elevator confrontation with activists from a Soros-backed group. On Friday morning, two women raced past reporters and security officers and blocked a senators-only elevator in the U.S. Capitol. They cornered Arizona senator Jeff Flake, who had just announced he was going to vote yes on moving Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination out of the Judiciary Committee and onto the Senate floor for a full debate. The women wouldn’t let Flake leave until they had yelled at him, face to face, for several minutes. Anyone who thinks the two left-wing activists acted without a well-thought-out plan...

    Supreme Court's Janus ruling finally gives a voice to 5M workers The government can no longer force its employees to pay a union as a condition of their employment. Thats what the Supreme Court decided on Wednesday in the case Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. This decision is life-changing for about 5 million government workers in 22 states, who have been forced to give part of every paycheck to a government union just to do their jobs. Workers who chose not to join a union in those states were still required to pay agency fees,...

    Elder Patriot Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally announced an investigation into the use of federal money to fund radical leftwing advocacy groups. In making the announcement Sessions cited that at least six billion dollars was funneled into what was essentially a slush fund for Obamas army of street activists. Its almost a certainty that that amount is going grow significantly. The groups receiving the money included La Raza (now UnidosUS), NeighborWorks America, National Community Reinvestment Coalition, Operation Hope, Black Lives Matter, and a spin-off of Acorn The Mutual Housing Association of New York, among numerous other extremist groups....

    ...when receiving the Freedom Award from producer/writer Norman Lears collectivist People for the American Way organization, Parker and Stone must have sensed that the leftie group really didnt understand freedom or their long-standing devotion to mixing satire with their love of liberty. So, in their inimitable in-your-face-yet-kind-hearted style, they asked conservative/libertarian talk show host Larry Elder to introduce them at the event! And when Parker and Stone accepted the award, they got to the stage, stood before the microphone, and in classic fashion, kindly informed the statists they were Republicans. As Elder explained on Twitter: After they graciously accepted, they...

    Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back his old power. He's actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one" in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he's not all that interested in watching his younger daughter grow up. That's the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama's Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital's toniest district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons, who,...

    Mr. Obama is said to be promising his fellow elites that he will Rip him (Trump) a new one come 2018. The prospect of a Midterm Election ass-whooping against the current President has the political and media globalists salivating. They continue to view Mr. Trump as a virus that threatens everything. In their collective view, it must be eradicated. As for Valerie Jarrett, she continues to do what she has always done the actual (dirty) business upon which the Obama empire was, and continues to be, built upon. This includes a long list of Deep State contacts, a near-constant...

    If you asked Americans who carries the most clout in political funding, liberals would typically answer corporations, while conservatives might name labor unions, and both would have a point, but few would probably think to mention a PAC called ActBlue. In fact, however, since its launch in June 2004, this PAC has become America's top political donor, ahead of both the AFSCME and AT&T in contributions made between 1989 and 2012, according to data compiled from FEC sources by the Center for Responsive Politics. According to ActBlue's own website, the organization had raised over $290 million in contributions as of...

    After Hurricane Harvey hit, Islamist activist Linda Sarsour put out a call for donations. But instead of the money going to hurricane victims, it was actually being directed to the Texas Organizing Project Education Fund. TOP is a spinoff of ACORN, a disgraced organization shut down in the wake of scandals involving embezzlement and internal cover-ups, and was backed by Hungarian anti-Semitic billionaire George Soros who continues to invest his ill-gotten wealth into a war against the Jewish State. Soros has blamed Jews for anti-Semitism and described his period as a Nazi collaborator as the most exciting time of my...

    [I begin] with the story of a series of Socialist scholars conferences that Barack Obama attended when he lived in New York City between the years 1983 and 1985. And when I finally reconstructed what had gone on at these Socialist conferences that Barack Obama attended, I truly was amazed because what I saw was a kind of map of Barack Obamas entire subsequent political career. It was at this Socialist conferences in New York in the mid-80s that Barack Obama encountered the groups, the strategies, and the mentors who would guide him throughout his entire political career. [T]hese Socialist...

    Even as Democrats publicly and loudly decry corporatist political dark money, billionaire Democrats and other donors funnel hundreds of millions to radical and violent causes. Barely a week had passed after Donald Trumps historic upset in the November 8 presidential election, but some of the worlds richest individuals were already launching a counteroffensive. George Soros and his fellow deep-pocket funders of the Democratic Party and left-wing causes gathered with a lineup of party activists and luminaries from Hollywood, K Street, and Wall Street for a three-day investment conference (November 15-17) at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C....

    A radical group linked to rogue billionaire George Soros has been providing scripts containing anti-Trump talking points for constituents to read aloud during congressional town hall meetings. One of the scripts distributed by the Revolutionary Love Project encourages town hall participants meeting with their member of Congress to accuse the Trump administration of wait for it xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia. Constituents are urged to use those precise words to forcefully condemn President Trumps immigration and border security initiatives, Aaron Klein reports at Breitbart News. Information about the scripts came as leaked audio from anti-Trump activists associated with the...

    NBC-owned television stations in cities across the nation just teamed up with a nonprofit journalism group funded by a billionaire husband and wife team who not only spent millions campaigning for President Obama but also topped donor lists to groups like ACORN and MoveOn.org.

The NBC affiliates will get early access to investigative reports from ProPublica, which describes itself as an independent, non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public...

    An ACORN offshoot and other left-wing pressure groups are suing California in federal court because the state hasnt made it easy enough for Democrats to flood voter rolls with illegal aliens and foreign nationals who arent legally eligible to vote. Throughout the years Mickey Mouse, Mary Poppins, and celebrities living and dead were registered to vote because now-defunct ACORN and its allied groups were allowed to pollute the voter rolls.

    Trump ends Obamas slush fund policy of illegally diverting settlement money from actual victims to Obamas favorite left wing groups that had no legal claim to the money While working as a community organizer, Barack Obama filed lawsuits which forced banks to give mortgages to people with bad credit and low incomes. As a result, many of these people ended up defaulting on their mortgages. As their attorney, Obama collected $23,000 in legal fees for himself. Then in April 2013, during Obamas second term as President, the Washington Post reported that President Obama was still pressuring banks to make home...
