    Exclusive: Larry Klayman flays Trump's AG for allowing corruption to continue at DOJ! As I chronicle in my autobiography, “Whores: Why and How I Came To Fight the Establishment!” I was once a proud trial lawyer in the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Indeed, as a young 27-year-old attorney in the Reagan DOJ, I was on the trial team that eventually broke up the AT&T monopoly, creating needed and innovative competition in the telecommunications industry. During my time at Justice, I worked closely with special agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the investigative arm...

    Two days after an attacker opened fire on concert goers in Las Vegas, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc) announced he was shelving legislation to deregulate suppressors. -snip- Ryan has now shelved the Hearing Protection Act, which was introduced into Congress on January 9; it is the legislation containing suppressor deregulation. The Act does not legalize suppressors–as they are already legal–rather, it removes the burdensome process for acquiring them and erases the federal tax that must be paid in order to receive permission to posses one. House Speaker Paul Ryan says NRA-backed bill to ease regulations on gun silencers is shelved...

    Cowardice is all that grows in the ashes of valor. I don’t know if that fact has been remarked upon previously. Just as I don’t know the number of words launched at observing how earnestly man deploys self-praise as salve for his frailties. Though if the lucid men of antiquity have left no record, it can only be because we have lurched beyond their insight. The ongoing invasion of the West, with its now routine attendant massacres, has revealed pockets of the human psyche that probably weren’t as apparent until being pulled open by modernity’s unique social mandates. Perhaps the...

    Terrorism is only “part and parcel” of urban life for elitist politicians who have no plan or desire to put a stop to criminal corruption, violence, criminal activity or terrorism Apparently feckless, neutered police are also impacting safety and security in the United Kingdom, and not just on California college campuses. The horrific Manchester bombing at the Arianna Grande concert Monday evening, which killed at least 22 and injured more than 150, might have been prevented if politically correct fecklessness within government wasn’t so rampant. Adding to the fecklessness and politics, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said terrorism is “part and...

    “Absent the pressures described [in my affidavit], I would have disapproved the findings in this case,” Lorge wrote in his affidavit. For Lorge, the pressure came from President Barack Obama’s White House and also the Senate. “At the time, the political climate regarding sexual assault in the military was such that a decision to disapprove the findings, regardless of merit, would bring hate and discontent on the Navy from the President, as well as senators including Senator Kirstin Gillibrand,” Lorge wrote in his affidavit. Lorge believes that based on his conversations with senior officials in the Navy, he was essentially...

    Sorry, Meryl but that hypocritical anti-Trump rant was easily the worst performance of your career (apart from that time you gave a child rapist a standing ovation) By Piers Morgan for MailOnline Oh, Meryl. Not you, too? Just when I thought we’d exhausted the reservoir of Trump-hating luvvies, up pops the biggest star in Hollywood to join the bandwagon and stick one more stiletto-heeled boot into the President-elect ten days before his inauguration. Let me make one thing clear before I continue: I love Meryl Streep. She’s the greatest actress in history (and not, as Trump disingenuously tweeted today, ‘one...

    It is no secret that Islamists consider the Germans as a bunch of cowards. “You love life; we love death”, they continue to repeat. Because wherever they look, the combatants of Allah see only people and governments only too ready to capitulate. And Germany is Europe’s soft underbelly. The Bundeswehr, Germany’s army, already belongs to history; the country has welcomed more than one million Muslims; German ministers envision the creation of an “official Islam”, while German churches are closing at weekly rhythm; the Sharia courts are already operating; comedians such as Jan Bohmermann are criminalized and the “night of Cologne”...

    Democratic strategist David Axelrod on Saturday suggested that Hillary Clinton skip her third and final debate with Donald Trump. The former White House adviser to President Obama responded to Trump's call for a drug test before his next debate with Clinton later this month. "You have to wonder if @HillaryClinton will/should reconsider next debate, given the depths to which this has sunk," Axelrod tweeted. Drug testing?!?

    In left-wing Los Angeles, where defending oneself with a firearm is strictly frowned upon by the upper crust (after all, that’s what highly paid body guards are for) it has now been decided that police officers must run away like frightened children rather than challenge anyone brandishing a deadly weapon. In short, officers of the Los Angeles Police Department—Angelino’s first and last line of defense in the MAY issue, concealed carry license State of California—have been instructed to allow armed lunatics to go their merry way, attacking defenseless citizens, before confronting and threatening them with potential harm! Such was the...

    The time for IMPEACHMENT has arrived.Today will go down in recorded history of the turning point in the ongoing destruction of America, America’s heritage and the conversion to Socialism and Pacifism.  We, the older generation who lived in the “old America” have had enough.  It’s time to bring back responsibility, traditional values, and all other means that required self-reliance, self-discipline and morality.  It has to stop here…TODAY!I watched in amazement, our timid, Muslim President spew forth verbal vomit in commenting on the Florida shootings.  He blamed guns for the massacre, not the Islamic hatred of America and all it...

    Dear Donald Trump Fan, I'm going to tell you the truth, friend. You say you want the truth. You say you want someone who speaks boldly and brashly and bluntly and "tells it like it is" and so on. According to exit polls in South Carolina, voters who want a president who "tells it like it is" are an essential demographic for Trump, just as they're an essential demographic for Judge Judy and Dr. Phil. You say you want abrupt and matter-of-fact honesty, and you want it so much, you'll make a man president for it regardless of whether he...

    As I see it the Sunni minority in Iraq and the Sunni majority in Syria are under siege by Shia. ISIS is the one successful Sunni group opposing the Shia. A very large portion of Arab Sunnis at least passively support ISIS, not because they support its extreme ideology but because they want the Sunnis to emerge victorious. A subset of the pro ISIS Sunnis actually support their extreme ideology. What we call the Iraqi military is seen by almost all Arab Sunnis as a Shia army under the influence, if not the control, of Iran. This explains why Turkey...

    Executive Summary The Iranian nuclear deal is a full capitulation to Iran’s terrorist mastermind Mullahs, and the latest in a series of betrayals of the American people and allies by the Obama administration. At the highest level of the administration, Barack Obama’s Senior Advisor, the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, prioritized rapprochement with the terror state. Throughout the process and negotiations, she had the backing of billionaire investor (and Obama-backer) George Soros, and his multi-headed network of tax-exempt foundations. Their efforts were driven by deep-rooted anti-Semitism and personal greed. Meanwhile, since the mid-1990s, a small but very connected Iranian lobby (funded, in...

    Andrea Mitchell said Tuesday she was concerned the Hillary Clinton campaign would have cut off her interview with the candidate if she asked too many questions about Clinton’s private email server at the State Department. Clinton sat down with Mitchell on Friday and the main topic from the start was her use of a private, unsecured server as secretary of state, which has caused serious problems for her campaign with questions about her honesty, trustworthiness, and handling of classified material. While other presidential candidates have made dozens of media appearances, Clinton has given just three nationally televised interviews since her...

    The Obama administration is so desperate to reach a nuclear deal with Iran by the current deadline of November 24th if at all possible that it is willing to trust Russia to play a key implementation role. In the face of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s duplicity with regard to Ukraine and Putin’s increasingly aggressive stance towards the West that harkens back to the Cold War, the Obama administration is deluding itself into thinking that it can trust Putin to keep his word on ensuring that much of Iran’s uranium stockpile is converted into a relatively harmless end product. According to...

    Today marks the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court legalizing abortion on demand throughout pregnancy. The pro-life movement commemorates this day with marches, worship services and lobbying for bills to protect unborn children. Pro-lifers were promised by the Republican leaders they just helped elect and re-elect that the House of Representatives would pass a bill today banning most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, a point after which infants can feel pain and survive if born prematurely. The legislation has been passed by the House in the previous Congress and is extremely popular in national polling. “One of the clearest...

    Attorney General Eric Holder officially submitted his resignation to President Obama last month after six years at the Department of Justice. Although a replacement for Holder will not be nominated until after the 2014 midterm elections, the attorney general is opening up about his worst decision during his tenure.  I can't imagine it was easy for him to choose only one. Speaking yesterday at a forum held in Washington D.C., Holder said he should have taken a "closer look at the language" used in subpoena naming Fox News' James Rosen as a criminal co-conspirator. Asked what decision he wishes he could do...
