    Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, also known as Diamond and Silk, noticed six months ago that their popular Facebook page was dropping in engagement. Wish I could tell them the same thing happened to me, too! Along with Facebook judging who is right for their community and who is not, we have news that the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats has instructed the intel community to be more transparent with the public to establish trust, according to a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin. And we have comments being made that the Constitution does not give you right to...

    After 9/11, and not one American asked where the $30 billion in gold stolen was, or the missing $2.3 trillion the Pentagon didn’t find, theft of American taxdollars went up! Now the Pentagon can’t find over $ 9 trillion dollars and no one cares but Peoples Politician Trey Gowdy. Where would Americans be today if the theft of trillions from their nation never left? Congressman Trey Gowdy is upset that with countless agencies investigating waste, fraud, and abuse, there aren’t more criminal punishments. Trey Gowdy also asks about negligence, gross negligence, and criminal negligence numbers.

    Blackwater founder Erik Prince, ex-CIA officer John Maguire, and Oliver North are advising President Trump to create his own private global spy network, which would report directly to him and CIA Director Mike Pompeo.  At this point, President Trump is surrounded by treasonous US Intelligence Agencies, which are part of the vast Deep State network seeking to overthrow his Presidency.   They are working with Special Counselor Robert Mueller to impeach him, and quite frankly they are quickly moving forward.  Mueller has let it be known he has made a deal with General Michael Flynn, which is nothing but a...

  • President Trump’s Budget Terminates Funding For Independent Agencies

    President Trump made headlines once again after his budget plan was released to the public. The plan will eliminate funding for the arts, public media, and additional independent agencies such as the African Development Foundation, the Delta Regional Authority, and many others. A plethora of Americans expressed their dismay at these groups losing their government funding, while others noted the budget’s ability to reduce a portion of America’s national debt. As one individual stated, we are trillions of dollars in debt and the President has to make certain budget cuts as a means of reduction. They went on to slam...

    Dear President Elect Donald Trump: Since 9/11, USA intelligence employs 200K Americans in 16 different agencies (that we know of), plus 30K private contractors in 170 countries at a cost of $75 billion per year. And rising yearly. With due respect, President Elect Trump, do you agree with me and scores of millions of other Americans that 1. our nation is more vulnerable to terrorism than ever, that 2. our classified info leaks to the whole world like a sieve and that 3. the so-called "Patriot Act" has morphed some, if not all of these agencies, into ugliness strangely reminiscent...

    Even people from Hollywood every once in a while have a moment of clarity. That came during the 1993 movie "Dave." In the movie we get exactly what Trump faces and what we hope he confronts. Dave was played by the ever hysterical Kevin Kline. He happens to be a double for the sitting President who has a stroke. (You anti-Trumpers don’t even think about that being the point of the column.) Until the real president recovers the aides to him have Dave step in and start running the government hoping he will be a marionette for them. Dave...

    pulled quote: "... Since Roosevelt’s Presidency, the Executive Office of the President has gained about 2,000 people, and the number of political appointees has increased to more than 7,000. Setting aside White House staffers and about 3,000 part time Presidential appointments, each new President fills about 3,000 positions with his or her partisans. To lead departments and agencies, contemporary Presidents make appointments to about 800 full time PAS positions, which require Senate confirmation (not including US attorneys, US marshals, or ambassadors, which are also PAS). In addition, each new administration can appoint partisans amounting to 10% of the Senior Executive...

    National Review ^ | 08/04/2015 | Alexis Levinson
    Manchester, N.H. — Rick Perry got a second shot at answering the question that derailed his 2012 presidential campaign Monday night. Speaking at a candidate forum here at St. Anselm’s College, Perry was asked: “Specifically, what agencies would you either eliminate or cut?” ”I’ve heard this question before,” Perry cracked, to laughter. He has indeed. The question infamously stumped him in a debate in 2011, when he listed two agencies and then appeared to forget the third. The “oops” that followed did as much as anything else to sink his White House bid that cycle. This time, Perry did not...

    Leading news services AP and Reuters have issued corrections to reports last Saturday claiming that Pope Francis called Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas an "angel of peace." That translation of the Pope's comments was republished by numerous international news outlets, including Arutz Sheva. But after initial doubts as to the accuracy of the translation ensued, several Italian-language experts confirmed to Arutz Sheva that Francis actually told Abbas that he "may" or "could" be an "angel of peace," in an attempt to persuade him to return to peace talks with Israel. Now the mis-translation has finally been acknowledged, at least partially,...

    Absolute Rights ^ | 02/11/2015 | Jon E. Dougherty
    It’s a cornerstone of our democratic republic: The right to choose those we want to represent us in government, and the right to choose which issues we support or oppose. But how much power do Americans really wield at the ballot box? Every two years we elect our representatives and a group of senators, and like clockwork, they return either to statehouses or to Washington, D.C., ostensibly to do the people’s bidding. The reality is, however, that so much of what emanates from the nation’s capital in terms of public policy has little to do with the passage of laws...

    WMBF.. TruthRevolt ^ | 7.10.2014 | | | Caleb Howe
    WMBF in Myrtle Beach, SC, reported Wednesday on the growing trend of businesses hiring only part-time workers, due to an inability to afford Obamacare. This situation leaves workers without healthcare and without a full-time income or other benefits. Local staffing agencies say more small business are starting to hire more part time employees. Not because there is more full time work, but as WMBF reporter Mandy Noell found out, it's because they can't afford to have more full time employees. Obamacare places requirements for health care benefits that many small businesses just cannot afford to pay. As a result, they...

    Friends, countrymen, let me explain what has been happening for years and is only now coming to head with all of the present scandals. A couple of years ago, my wife and I went to look at a house for sale. A Federal employee and his Filipino wife were selling and in the conversation, the man admitted he was retiring to the Philippines. It didn't register at the time, but now it is really hitting me. It is very inexpensive to live in the Philippines, servants are cheap, housing is a steal and food prices are rock bottom. Almost all...

    A growing number of firearm and firearm-related companies have stated they will no longer sell items to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens' rights to own them. According to The Police Loophole, 34 companies have joined in publicly stating that governments who seek to restrict 2nd Amendment rights will themselves be restricted from purchasing the items they seek to limit or ban. Extreme Firepower Inc., located in Inwood, WV has had a longstanding policy that states: "The Federal Government and several states have enacted gun control laws that restrict the public from owning and possessing certain types...

    If you think privacy settings on your Facebook and Twitter accounts guarantee future employers or schools can't see your private posts, guess again. Employers and colleges find the treasure-trove of personal information hiding behind password-protected accounts and privacy walls just too tempting, and increasingly, they are demanding full access from applicants and students. In Maryland, job seekers applying to the state's Department of Corrections have been asked during interviews to log into their accounts and let an interviewer watch while the potential employee clicks through wall posts, friends, photos and anything else that might be found behind the privacy wall.

    "We’re experiencing the beginning of the repercussions of the financial crisis,” said Michel-Edouard Leclerc on Wednesday during an interview on Europe 1, France’s largest radio network. He is the CEO of the second largest retailer in France, E. Leclerc, a privately owned cooperative association with 555 stores—mostly hypermarkets—in France and 117 stores in other countries. Sounding like a CEO one minute and like a populist presidential candidate the next, he emphasized that his company has done relatively well in 2011, sales being up 5%. Strategy: offer deals and cut prices. The whole industry, he said, “ate up inflation” with their...

    Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley’s new jobs-creation package ranges from ordering top-ranking agency officials to review regulations to asking Marylanders for their input on making the state more business-friendly - and he’s already gotten an earful. At least 183 people have posted suggestions to a state website since Mr. O'Malley, a Democrat, made the request last week. Many of the comments detail how posters became tangled in red tape while trying to start a business or apply for a job. Others offered more wide-ranging complaints about what they considered general inefficiencies in state government - such as underperforming employees, overspending and...
