  • Another American Civil War or Manipulations by the Media?

    Another American Civil War or Manipulations by the Media? The Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service recently released a poll that asked voters to rate the level of American divisions from 0-100, with 100 being “on the edge of a civil war”. The mean response was 67.23. No reasonable person believes two thirds of the population is poised on the edge of their seat, wringing their hands with worry over a pending civil war. A physical battle between Republicans and Democrats in the United States sounds like a ridiculous notion and perhaps a bestselling fiction novel. Imagine for a...
  • House Calls on Supreme Court to Allow Them to Enforce Subpoenas for Trump’s Financial Records

    House Democrats urged the Supreme Court to allow them to enforce congressional subpoenas for President Donald Trump’s financial records, saying that the information was needed to protect the 2020 election from foreign interference. In a filing on Wednesday (pdf), the House attorneys argue that any harm suffered by Trump and his businesses from complying with the subpoena would be less severe than the harm the House and the public would suffer without having access to the financial records so that it could “exercise its constitutional functions.” The attorneys said the information was needed to determine if legislation is warranted to...

    One of the great symbols of America, the American flag, has largely been manufactured in China, but things are starting to change.Known as a sacred symbol of the republic, representing the defense of the rights of its people, the creation of the flag has an important place in America's heart.Designed in 1776 by upholsterer Betsy Ross, who also produced uniforms, flags, and tents for the Continental Army, the design's 13 stars represent the original states that declared independence from Great Britain.

    Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) on Sunday said a pair of his Republican colleagues who took issue with President Trump's July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian president were wrong to suggest there was anything improper in the communication. CNN's Dana Bash asked Meadows on "State of the Union" to respond to Republican Reps. Mac Thornberry (Texas) and Mike Turner (Ohio) calling the phone call at the center of the impeachment inquiry “inappropriate” and “alarming,” respectively. “They are wrong,” Meadows said. “With all do respect for my colleague I was in the depositions,” he said, adding he was one of only...

    Texas will be much cleaner after this upcoming weekend as Scott Presler, conservative activist and environmental steward, returns to Harris County. Over the last year, the 31-year-old spearheaded initiatives to cleanup cities and empower communities across the United States including Chicago, Baltimore, and Los Angeles. He now plans to tackle our very own city of Houston this Saturday. In a phone call with the Houston Courant, Scott’s enthusiasm was earnest, “I used to live in Galveston and League City and have roots in the greater Houston area. We want to go into the areas that have been neglected and show...
  • US Economy Adds 266,000 Jobs in November, Exceeding Expectations

    The Labor Department has released a stronger than expected November jobs report Friday, buoyed in part by General Motors workers returning to the workforce after a strike. The report said 266,000 jobs were added in November, a figure significantly higher than the expected gain of about 180,000, according to economists polled by MarketWatch. Tens of thousands of automotive industry workers were added back to November payrolls after returning from a month-long GM strike, giving a boost to October’s lackluster new jobs figure of 156,000, which the report revised upwards from 128,000.

    We should always celebrate more freedom in our lives. December 5 is no different. Eighty-six years ago, Prohibition was repealed. This year, Texas can celebrate its own version of Repeal Day. This December marks three months since another kind of prohibition was abolished—on beer to go. On September 1, Texans were finally allowed to buy their favorite craft beer at a local brewery to bring and drink at home. Until that date, Texans could buy wine to bring home from a local winery and distilled spirits from a distillery, but in most cases, not beer from breweries. The places that...

    Five more women, who claim to have been raped by deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein when they were minors, have alleged that Prince Andrew witnessed the sexual abuse, according to a bombshell new report.The claims emerged in Monday night's BBC Panorama special, during which it was revealed that Andrew, the Duke of York, has been named as a witness in five new legal cases against the convicted sex offender who died in August.The fresh allegations may mean the Queen's second-born son could be called to give evidence in court should he return to the US.

    The Democrat-directed impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump has cast a harsher light on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s dealings in Ukraine, prompting Senate Republicans to request detailed records from the federal government. As the House Intelligence Committee wrapped up the public impeachment hearings on Nov. 21, Senate Republicans sent another set of records requests to acquire information into the Obama administration’s meetings and decisions related to Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company that payed Hunter Biden tens of thousands of dollars a month to serve on its board. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Ron Johnson...

    Thanksgiving can be a tough time of year for many Americans. “The worst moment for an atheist is when he is really thankful and has no one to thank,” G.K. Chesterton pointed out many years ago. These days, the holiday has two stumbling blocks that I see. The first is America’s growing secularization. The second is something evident even among many of the still-faithful: a failure to appreciate the abounding blessings we all enjoy. The answer to both is the same: Look up. Let’s take those in reverse order. In our deeply divided world, with impeachment hearings dominating our news...

    It’s been three years since Donald Trump was elected president, and Democrats had all this time to find a good candidate to challenge him. They didn’t deliver. Barely a majority of Democrats, just 51%, believe that Joe Biden is likely to beat Trump, according to a recent Gallup poll. For Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, the numbers tumble to 16% and 15%, respectively. Democrats are none too confident in their own. Even billionaire and long shot presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg understands the problem. After announcing his campaign for president, Bloomberg justified his vanity project by arguing that Trump has a...

The establishment of such a product requires consideration of multifaceted ramifications. The House Financial Services Committee is charged with investigating the potential liabilities Libra may impose on competing digital currency, the U.S. dollar and the global commercial system built around it. Mark Zuckerberg appeared before the House Financial Services Committee in Washington D.C. to respond to questions about the new money. Zuckerberg delivered an opening...

    Robert De Niro's attacks on President Donald Trump are almost a daily occurrence these days, so its no surprise he called the president a 'piece of sh*t' before touting Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg as capable of winning the White House in 2020.“Buttigieg, I like a lot,” De Niro said, according to The Daily Beast.“He’s got all the credentials—Rhodes Scholar, Afghanistan veteran—even though he’s young, and if he could get a chance, it could be something special, I think.”

    Thanks to disgraced FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who told us in a text message that “POTUS wants to know everything we’re doing”, we know that President Barack Hussein Obama was kept fully informed about the deep state coup against President Trump. Liar and leaker James Clapper has thrown Obama under the bus by saying the plotters would not have proceeded without President Obama’s approval. In a CNN interview deep state conspirator and perjurer James Clapper gave with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, he points his finger directly at Barack Hussein Obama as leader of the coup against Donald Trump:...

    ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLE?! In the world of political news, a presidential impeachment is like the Super Bowl. For the major media, this is what the last three years of buildup is coming down to — President Trump’s presidency hangs in the balance, and the TV talking heads who helped bring about this dramatic crescendo are doing everything they can to hype the moment. As the hearings themselves — which largely cover internal conversations among career diplomats and foreign service officers — have been called boring and dull, these media personalities are perhaps overcompensating, using words like “explosive!” and...

    The idea of college-for-all puts a lot of students in a bad position, because not all high school seniors have a firm grasp of the financial risk being taken—the average graduating college senior in 2017 was $28,650 in debt. Students should fully understand the ramifications of incurring student loan debt and that there are other, less costly, post-secondary options. There are dependable careers, with attractive pay, that are attainable without a college degree, the training for which can be fostered by high schools via Career and Technical Education. An electrician, for example, makes on average $50,977 a year in Texas....

    LONDON (Reuters) - The British government will publish a parliamentary report examining alleged Russian meddling in British politics after the country’s Dec. 12 election, security minister Brandon Lewis said on Sunday. Opponents have accused the government of sitting on the report by parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC), which has been cleared by the security services, because it might contain embarrassing revelations about Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his party.Lewis told Sky News the report could not be published during the so-called “purdah” period which sets rules on government announcements during an election campaign.
