  • President Trump’s Top Advisers Worth Nearly $2 Billion

    The White House’s finance disclosure documents recently revealed that the President’s top four advisors collectively amount to nearly $2 billion. Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus, and Jared Kushner have assets that total between $757 million and $1.9 billion. Jared Kushner, son-in-law to President Trump holds nearly $700 million dollars worth of assets with his wife, Ivanka Trump. Some people have asserted that the recent financial disclosures are alarming, due to how much the President appealed to working class families during his 2016 campaign. This accusation is absurd and ridiculous. While Mr. Trump’s policies will benefit the middle class, this does not...
  • UNLIKE CLINTON’S STAFF Trump’s Advisers Say They’re Willing To Testify to Congress

    A number of Donald Trump’s aides have proactively offered to testify in front of Congress. This is a stark contrast to Hillary Clinton’s aides, who tried to avoid Congress during her email investigations. Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Carter Page have all come forward and offered to testify in front of Congress. The Daily Caller reported that all three of these men have continuously maintained their innocence; however, Democrats seem determined to find some sort of connection, regardless of whether it exists or not. These three aides have come under scrutiny after CNN released a number of reports suggesting that...

    In a move that would expand America’s involvement in Syria’s civil war, President Obama is close to authorizing the U.S. military to train moderate Syrian rebels to fight the regime of Bashar Assad and al Qaeda-linked groups, according to reports. U.S. officials told the Wall Street Journal Tuesday that the new military program would supplement a small training effort led by the CIA, which Mr. Obama authorized a year ago. At the White House Tuesday, Mr. Obama declined to answer a reporter’s question about the U.S. sending more advisers to train the rebels. In a commencement address at the U.S....

    The U.S. military has deployed a small number of uniformed trainers and advisers to the failed state of Somalia for the first time since 1993, when two helicopters were shot down and 18 Americans were killed in the failed “Black Hawk Down” operation. A cell of U.S. military personnel has been stationed in the Somali capital of Mogadishu since last fall to advise and coordinate operations with African troops fighting to wrest control of the country from the al-Shabab militia, an Islamist group whose leaders have professed loyalty to al-Qaeda, according to three U.S. military officials. The previously undisclosed deployment...
  • Report: Gen. Mattis Forced Out of CENTCOM for Questioning Obama's Advisers

    Reports indicate that Marine General James Mattis is being forced out of CENTCOM for questioning certain aspects of the Obama administration's Middle East policy. In particular, it appears his questions surrounding the U.S. response to Iran's nuclear ambitions drew the ire of civilian military and security advisers. These civilians were apparently upset by the way Mattis pushed them to "consider second and third-order consequences of military action against Iran." Nor did they appreciate the way he pushed them to think long term and consider what the U.S. will do if Iran develops non-nuclear weapons that can be used to keep...

    Among the key responsibilities of a president is choosing highly capable officials to steer the nation's course wisely. President Obama has failed in this duty. Romney declared during the debate that Obama only picks losers regarding green energy boondoggles; the same pattern holds true when it comes to picking people to run the nation. His picks span the spectrum from the incompetent to the dismal. Recently, I was struck by the tone and gist of a column by New York Times liberal columnist (but I repeat myself) Roger Cohen. His piece, " Obama's Team of Idolizers," made mincemeat of Barack...

    Gov. Rick Perry’s inner circle has evolved significantly since he was first elected to the Texas House in 1984. He changed parties, for one thing, becoming a Republican and shucking one political infrastructure for another. And he changed offices, moving from the House to the Texas Department of Agriculture, from there to the lieutenant governorship and from there, with the election of George W. Bush to the presidency in 2000, into the office he holds today. His closest advisers are a mix of family, longtime friends and close aides. They know his politics, his history, his strengths and weaknesses, what...

    Earlier this year, Barack Obama formed a new presidential advisory committee on jobs and competitiveness that the White House hoped would alleviate at least two critical problems for the administration. First, after spending a year shoving ObamaCare down the throats of voters who clearly didn’t want it, Obama needed to re-establish that jobs had become a priority again. Second, and only slightly less important, Obama had to bolster the private-sector bona fides for his administration, which almost entirely lacked any such experience.Obama invited the heads of several American companies to join his panel, and they’re probably delighted with the access....
  • Obama's Women Advisers Pushed War Against Libya

    So three or four of Obama's advisers, all women, wanted war against Libya.   We'd like to think that women in power would somehow be less prowar, but in the Obama administration at least it appears that the bellicosity is worst among Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Samantha Power. All three are liberal interventionists, and all three seem to believe that when the United States exercises military force it has some profound, moral, life-saving character to it. Far from it.

    WASHINGTON - Sarah Palin, seen as a possible Republican presidential candidate, has paid tens of thousands of dollars for foreign policy advice to a U.S. firm that represents three overseas governments, campaign finance documents show. While legal, the adviser’s work as an agent for other countries raises questions about whether Palin is receiving impartial information about foreign relations and could be become a subject of debate if she runs for president or another elected office. Financial reports filed by the former Alaska governor’s fundraising committee known as SarahPAC, show that between December 2009 and the end of May 2010, it...

    When the Commerce Department reported Friday that the economy had grown at a humble 2.4 percent in the second quarter, even the liberal Washington Post suggested President Barack Obama’s policies were not leading to the sort of economic growth necessary to reduce unemployment, which has risen from 7.7 percent to 9.5 percent since Obama took office. “The recovery is fading, and a troubling pattern is setting in: economic growth that is too slow to put Americans back to work,” said the first paragraph in the Post’s report on the new GDP numbers. But in the worldview presented in an early...

    It is expected to announce plans Monday to speed up the release of remaining stimulus funds over the next 100 days by targeting the best places to spend the cash. To the naysayers, White House advisers are urging patience and asking them to look on the bright side of the stats. "It's a substantial improvement from what the job losses have been," White House economic adviser Austan Goolsbee, told "FOX News Sunday," noting that the 345,000 jobs lost in May was far less than in prior months. "That's the smallest job loss since September of last year." Senior White House...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – Over 70 American military advisers and technical specialists are secretly working in Pakistan to help its military units conduct operations against Al-Qaeda and the Taliban in western tribal areas, The New York Times reported. Citing unnamed officials, the newspaper said the advisers mostly include US Army Special Forces soldiers. Overseen by the US Central Command and Special Operations Command, the advisers provide the Pakistani army with training and intelligence, the report said. But they do not get involved in combat operations. The advisers form part of a secret task force that was started last summer with the...

    WASHINGTON - Top current advisers to Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign last year lobbied for a European plane maker that beat Boeing to a $35 billion Air Force tanker contract, taking sides in a bidding fight that McCain has tried to referee for more than five years. Two of the advisers gave up their lobbying work when they joined McCain's campaign. A third, former Texas Rep. Tom Loeffler, lobbied for the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co. while serving as McCain's national finance chairman. EADS is the parent company of Airbus, which teamed up with U.S.-based Northrop Grumman Corp. to...

    Hillary Clinton's most senior advisers are in a state of "panic" about her presidential prospects and are plotting to enlist Democrat leaders in Congress to thwart her rival Barack Obama's ambitions. The Clinton camp is braced for Mr Obama to win a series of primary elections over the next three weeks, which they fear could hand the Illinois senator unstoppable momentum in the race for the White House. Mr Obama has begun calling those "super delegates" - 795 congressmen and senior party officials who could break a dead heat - who are committed to Mrs Clinton, asking them to change...

    Which spectre haunts financial advisers the most? Terrorism? Global unrest? Not even close. According to a survey of over 200 financial advisers taken in December, their biggest worry is that Hillary Clinton will win the presidential election in November: Nothing worries financial advisers more than the prospect of a Democrat's being elected president in November, according to a quarterly poll by Brinker Capital Inc. The fourth-quarter edition of the Brinker Barometer, which polled 236 advisers in December, found that 22% indicated that a "Democrat in the White House" worried them more than all other economic or geopolitical concerns. Rounding out...
