    Former DNC boss and longtime Clinton insider Donna Brazile found a new excuse for Hillary’s electoral disaster this week; suggesting that Democrats were “crime victims” during the 2016 race for the White House. Brazile weighed-in on Hillary’s stunning defeat on social media over the weekend; calling on President Trump to “protect elections” after “criminal” activities swayed American voters away from the Democratic nominee. “While President Trump and his allies like to dismiss the idea of Russian interference in our elections as a “hoax,” those of us who were at the Democratic National Committee know better. We were the victims of...

    The governor of Colorado does our nation a grave disservice by misleading the public about the impact of marijuana on his state in the April 9 interview in Rolling Stone magazine. Neither the governor's statements, nor the smoke rising from 4/20 events, can hide the fact that drug use and addiction, especially among youths, are a growing public health concern in communities across Colorado and the nation. ... According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, Colorado is a national leader among 12-17-year-olds in: (1) Last year marijuana use; (2) Last month marijuana use; and (3) The...

    the mainstream media took no notice of last week’s federal court filing that exposes an $84 million money-laundering conspiracy the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign executed during the 2016 presidential election in violation of federal campaign-finance law. That lawsuit, filed last week in a DC district court, summarizes the DNC-Clinton conspiracy and provides detailed evidence from Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings confirming the complaint’s allegations that Democrats undertook an extensive scheme to violate federal campaign limits.......From Bundling To Money Laundering. What Backer discovered, as he explained in an interview, was much worse. There was “extensive evidence in...

Tadlock put the fruit in her carry-on to save for when she was hungry during the second leg of her trip. Once Tadlock arrived in the U.S., she went through Customs and her bag was...

    New York City police are searching for a man in a “Make America Great Again” shirt and hat who allegedly pushed a man onto the subway tracks on Friday. Police say the suspect, described as a black male, got into a verbal dispute with the victim while onboard a train, during which he made racially derogatory statements about the victim, who is described as a 24-year-old Hispanic man. The man in the MAGA garb then followed the victim off the train and punched him in the head several times before pushing him onto the tracks, according to New York’s ABC7...

    A pro-Trump political action committee has filed a complaint with the FEC alleging the Hillary Clinton campaign laundered $84 million in contributions from big-name donors, such as Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, filmmaker Steven Spielberg, and designer Calvin Klein. The complaint outlines a money laundering scheme that violated multiple campaign finance laws, specifically laws related to limits on contributions by independent donors. As of this week, the complaint has escalated with a lawsuit urging the FEC to take action on the complaint which appears to have been largely ignored by the FEC since being filed in December of 2017. Using both civil...

    Sweden may be known for its popular music, IKEA and a generous welfare state. It is also increasingly associated with a rising number of Islamic State recruits, bombings and hand grenade attacks. In a period of two weeks earlier this year, five explosions took place in the country. It’s not unusual these days — Swedes have grown accustomed to headlines of violent crime, witness intimidation and gangland executions. In a country long renowned for its safety, voters cite “law and order” as the most important issue ahead of the general election in September. The topic of crime is sensitive, however,...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said on Wednesday that he will sign an executive order giving all parolees in New York the right to vote. The announcement comes after he noted that the New York Legislature voted down such a measure. "I'm going to make it law by executive order," Cuomo said during a speech to the National Action Network’s annual conference. “In this state, when you're released from prison and you're on parole, you still don't have the right to vote,” Cuomo said. “Now how can that be? You did your time. You paid your debt. You're released,...

    On Thursday, one Danish tourist in New York City found out that wearing pro-Trump attire apparently warrants getting robbed at knifepoint. Jannich Andersen was enjoying New York City with his friends so much that he decided to buy his father a gift - a red “Make America Great Again” hat. He said he bought it as a joke and thought it would be acceptable to wear around Union Square subway station. However, a couple of thugs found nothing funny about his accessory choice. Andersen says that two men in their twenties circled him and told him to remove his hat. When...

    Fifty years separate us, now, from 1968 and the two momentous legacies of the then soon to ending failed presidency of Lyndon Johnson: The declaring of war on America’s supposed domestic ills in the form of the “Great Society” programs, and the aggressive military intervention in a real war in Vietnam. Both of these “wars” reflected the arrogance and hubris of the social engineer who believes that he has the power and ability to remake and direct society in his own preferred image. The Vietnam War still leaves a searing memory of a military conflict ten thousand miles away from...

    Hector Barajas was convicted of shooting at a vehicle in 2002, was deported back to Mexico, quickly snuck back into the U.S. was caught and deported again. He then started a support group for fellow veterans deported to Mexico, worked to get them health care — and, last year, earned a pardon from California Gov. Jerry Brown for his crime. On Friday he’ll cross the border once again, arriving in San Diego, where he’ll be sworn in as a U.S. citizen. To his backers, it’s a long-overdue recognition for a man who devoted years of his life to his adopted...

    London's murder rate has surpassed that of New York City in 2018 so far, and Mayor Sadiq Khan is determined to stop it. The mayor, who branded stop-and-search tactics of suspicious individuals as "racist," now says police will dramatically increase the practice as well as banning home deliveries of knives and acid, which is another popular weapon used by criminals in the city. Daily Wire: Khan announced Friday that the city has created a "violent crime taskforce of 120 officers" tasked with rooting out knife-wielding individuals in public spaces, and is pumping nearly $50 million dollars [sic] into the Metropolitan...
