    Maxine Waters was elected to Congress in the year of 1990. During her time in Congress, her family has made over a million dollars in revenue from Waters’ government connections. Throughout Waters’ 27 years in Congress, she only managed to pass three bills: a Haiti relief bill, the renaming of a post office, and a modification of the national flood insurance program. Additionally, Waters failed to gain much popularity in Congress. Citizens For Responsibility and Ethics in Washington labeled her as the most corrupt member in Congress during the years of 2005, 2006, 2009, and 2011. A few years ago,...
  • FBI Says No Need For Top Official To Recuse Himself From Trump-Russia Probe (McCabe)

    A top FBI official whose wife received political donations from an ally of Hillary Clinton’s last year does not need to recuse himself from the ongoing Trump-Russia investigation, the bureau said Wednesday. The Senate Judiciary Committee inquired last month about FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s role on the Trump probe, which is looking into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley had expressed concerns about a potential conflict of interest given that McCabe’s wife ran a state campaign in Virginia that received $700,000 from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a close friend of Clinton’s. [...
  • Muddy Maxine Waters: What a Riot

    Are you freaking kidding me? Thirteen-term Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Beltway barnacle permanently affixed to USS Government, is now the fresh-faced "rock star" of the Democratic Party. "Auntie Maxine" is stoking the resistance, inspiring millenials, combating hate, crusading against corruption and invoking the counterinsurgent cry to "stay woke!" I do not have enough guffaws to give. This new spokesmodel for civility and clean government has stoked division and exploited taxpayers for decades. Change agent? She has served on the Democratic National Committee since 1980 -- when the Atari 2600 was cutting-edge, Kim Kardashian was a newborn, and Al Franken was...
  • Susan Rice: Just Another Corrupt Liberal Hack!

    Former Obama security adviser, Susan Rice made headlines today after it was discovered by White House intelligence agents that she requested the ‘unmasking’ of President Trump’s transition team members. Bloomberg columnist Eli Lake reported that Rice’s dishonorable actions were brought to light during a National Security Council review of the government spying on American civilians. This occurrence is not dissimilar to when Donna Brazile leaked debate questions to Hillary Clinton during the second Presidential debate. Apparently, Democrats are so intimidated by their competition that they are reduced to using underhanded tactics to achieve victory. What happened to Michelle Obama’s infamous...

    The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act supports America’s fight against international business bribes and corporate favors. Intended to promote American business and foreign-policy ideals around the world, and give US companies a tool to battle corruption abroad, it has also helped other countries crack down on bribery, and has extracted billions of dollars in fines. The FCPA makes it illegal for US companies and people working abroad to engage in corrupt acts such as bribing officials. It bans foreign firms and people from doing the same in the US. American companies must keep accurate, transparent records and not hide payments in...
  • Media Advance New Narrative: “Mean Trump” With Phone Call Leaker in White House

    The latest Mostly Swamp Media (MSM) talking point is rather funny. Keeping up with the continuing technique of ‘media reports on media reports‘, today the preferred undermining narrative is to sell a tale of White House leakers.The Associated Press (AP) is transparently still upset about their first-question White House press decorum being violated by the vulgarian Spice; and on the heels of the deplorable decision to allow common-folk in fly-over country to Skype in questions to the daily press briefing (which began today), the AP publishes an account of bad hombre’ Trump talking to the magnanimous defender of all...

    Someday, Bill O'Reilly may add to his list of historical books, which include Killing Kennedy and Killing the Rising Sun, the title Killing CNN.  It portends to be the chronicle of a vital turning point in American history, the death of the propaganda machine in our politics, and the resurgence of genuine journalism. I have for some time now eschewed referring to most American news institutions as "mainstream media" and instead termed them what they are: the Ministry of Propaganda (MoP). ~SNIP~ For those who may find themselves uneasy at the possibility of official censorship, remind yourselves that what...

    The Chicago Tribune ^ | 12/14/2016 | John Kass
    Most aldermen, most politicians are hos," corrupt Chicago Ald. Arenda Troutman said, rather famously, on federal tape. She wasn't speaking about gardening tools, was she? Troutman was talking about the politics of Chicago, which is, if you've forgotten, the political corruption capital of the United States. Troutman represented the South Side's 20th Ward. At her 2009 sentencing, she squirted a few tears, sobbed, prayed, begged and then got four years in federal prison anyway. And on Wednesday her replacement, Ald. Willie Cochran, a former Chicago police officer who campaigned as something of a corruption buster, was himself indicted on federal...

    "Floyd Abrams, a lawyer whose reputation as a fierce protector of free speech is perhaps second to no one, has a surprising message to the media establishment. On Wednesday evening, he told a room full of other media lawyers that in light of Tuesday's election of Donald Trump, they needed to think creatively and even contemplate bringing libel cases on the plaintiff's side to bolster the First Amendment."

  • WikiLeaks Reveals How Billionaire 'Progressives' Run The Democratic Party

    11/03/2016 5:04:05 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 30 replies
    Among the curiosities spewed from John Podesta's email by WikiLeaks is an intriguing memo to a group of billionaires that outlines the real goals of the Democratic Party's progressive wing. Turns out they don't want to rig an election, they want to rig the whole system — demographics, politics, the media, everything. The idea that the Democratic Party is the party of the "little man," as the old term would have it, is one of the great fallacies of our time, as this memo clearly shows. The Democratic Party has been captured by the interests of a handful of left-leaning...

  • Hillary’s own Twitter feed admits: she’s ‘one of the most corrupt, least popular, candidates of all

    No, really. It did. I don’t know who’s running Hillary Clinton’s Twitter feed. It’s probably some poor, malnourished, lackey chained to a radiator in the basement next to her email server. They post a tweet, a little door opens in the wall, and a food pellet drops out. It’s a meager way to live but, if you’re working for Hillary, it could be worse. You could be Huma. Whoever does her tweeting, they should be applauded. Yesterday, they interrupted her steady stream of lies, propaganda, and virulent attacks with a brief moment of clarity.

    According to reporting from The Wall Street Journal, the Clinton Foundation was under investigation earlier this year by the FBI, but that investigation was stymied and may have been shut down completely by the Justice Department. “Early this year, four FBI field offices—New York, Los Angeles, Washington and Little Rock, Ark.—were collecting information about the Clinton Foundation to see if there was evidence of financial crimes or influence-peddling, according to people familiar with the matter,” reports The Wall Street Journal. In addition, the FBI was actively probing former Clinton Foundation board member and current Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe, but...

Based on the findings of an independent audit, however, Mayor Lisa Gillmore is now worried that Santa...

    FBI Data Dump Shows Clinton Is Criminal and Clueless Hillary is either dishonest or dumb—there is no third choice Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Today, on the Friday afternoon before the long Labor Day weekend, the Federal Bureau of Investigation released documents on its investigation of Hillary Clinton and her mishandling of email while she was secretary of state. The Friday afternoon data dump is a venerable Washington cliché, a shady way to bury a story that the bureaucracy doesn’t want covered in depth, but even by Beltway standards this was a shocker. Nobody expected much from the FBI here,...

    Hillary Clinton is probably the single most corrupt politician to ever be nominated by a major party for president. The GOP has an uncanny ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. In a race where a Republican presidential candidate has generated more excitement than any since Ronald Reagan, the establishment GOP has from the get-go tried to sabotage that candidate. From the usual cabal of neocon pundits (Bill Kristol, etc), to Paul Ryan and Ted Cruz delaying their endorsements of Donald Trump it would seem that the entire establishment has been doing everything they can to prevent the...
