    Reps. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) were arrested today sitting in the street outside of Trump Tower in Manhattan. Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) was also taken into custody. All three are die-hard Marxists and as racist as they come. They were busted for civil disobedience.Why would communist Democratic Congressmen make fools of themselves like this? Because of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals that was brought into being unconstitutionally by Barack Obama. Which is just hysterical because as far as I can tell and as much as I hate to say it, it looks like President Trump is...

    Last week whacko feminist and radical Muslim Linda Sarsour declared jihad on Donald Trump and his entire administration. This was not a case of people reading something into her words; she literally said she was waging a holy war on the President of the United States. Apparently that wasn’t enough so now she’s pretty much threatening everyone else. At least anyone who reported on her violent declaration. In a speech before the Islamic Society of North America, Sarsour said: “I hope, that we, when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as...
