    George Conway, a conservative attorney whose wife is Donald Trump's senior White House counselor, has formed an organization whose goal is to push back against the president. Charter members of the group, called Checks and Balances, include former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, former acting Attorney General Stuart Gerson, former Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty and former Deputy White House Counsel Phillip Brady. Missing from its mission statement is any mention of Conway's wife, who helmed Trump's White House quest and became the first woman to successfully bring a presidential campaign across a November finish line. 'We believe in the...
  • Adam Schiff: The Tearing Down of Our Justice Department ‘Is Going to End’

    Tuesday night on MSNBC’s midterm election coverage, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said now that Democrats control the House of Representatives, President Donald Trump will not be able to tear down of the independence of the Justice Department. Schiff said, “The chances that Bob Mueller will be able to finish his work improved for the reason that our committee and others, like the government reform committee and the judiciary committee, which under Republican leadership served as basically surrogates for the president in their efforts to batter down the Justice Department, to give the president a pretext to fire people at the...

    (CNSNews.com) - Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said the outcome of the midterm election will have no bearing on the investigation into the FBI/DOJ now being conducted by his committee: "Until January 3 at 12 noon, I'll be chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Trey Gowdy will be chairman the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and we will continue this investigation," Goodlatte told "Sunday Morning Futures" with Maria Bartiromo. As part of their probe into the origins of the FBI's Trump-Russia probe, Goodlatte and Gowdy plan to interview Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Wednesday,...

    Project Veritas just released its latest undercover video, "Unmasking the Deep State."  This first video focuses on a State Department employee who is both a poster child for the Deep State and a perfect example of why the federal bureaucracy needs serious reform.  Providentially, there is new legislation being considered in Congress that would do just that: the Merit Act (H.R. 559). The Merit Act would greatly streamline the process for firing employees who are poor performers, insubordinate, or otherwise engaged in misconduct.  Since the election of President Trump, the bureaucracy, including numerous holdovers from the Obama administration, has been engaged in...

    President Trump bashed Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) during a campaign rally in his home state of Montana on Thursday night, accusing the incumbent senator of embracing the "swamp" in Washington, D.C. “Jon Tester will never drain the swamp because he happens to live in the swamp and he loves the swamp,” Trump said in Billings, Mont., while touting Tester's Senate GOP rival Matt Rosendale. "The problem is he’s never going to vote for me,” Trump added, referring to Tester. Trump attempted to tie the Democratic senator to his popular foils, Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.), House Democratic Leader Nancy...

    Attorney Lanny Davis says he was an anonymous source in a July CNN story that reported his client, Michael Cohen, had privately claimed that President Trump had advance knowledge of the infamous Trump Tower meeting between his son and Russians — contradicting Davis's own words on CNN's air last week. In the story, Cohen was reported to claim he had personally witnessed Donald Trump Jr. informing then-candidate Trump about the June 2016 meeting. Such a claim from Cohen would directly contradict Trump’s statements about his knowledge of the meeting, where Russians were set to offer dirt on Hillary Clinton. CNN’s...

    One of the most bizarre aspects of the investigations engulfing the Trump administration is the lawyers involved. Here we have a presidency on the line, and this is Trump's team? The top legal spokesmen for each side are . . . Rudy Giuliani and Lanny Davis!? Up until this point, though, Giuliani was the Great Contradictor and Davis was merely a colorful character. Now that has changed in a big way. In a new interview with The Washington Post's Tom Hamburger and Rosalind S. Helderman, Davis is backing off two massive claims he made in recent weeks, including that former...

    Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former attorney, is “pleading guilty to a crime that doesn’t exist” to further Democrats’ plans to impeach the president. He offered his analysis during a Wednesday interview with Breitbart Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight. “I don’t think there’s an impeachable offense,” said Dershowitz. “I believe you need to have a specific crime — treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors — and none of the things that [Michael] Cohen pleaded guilty to would rise to that level or even...

    Conservative Sounds
    Make no mistake, Michael Cohen facing possibly upwards of 70 years in prison on multiple tax fraud charges, was confronted by the Clintonistas, leftists and deep state cohorts with a proposition; that if he agree to plea ‘and’ *wink* make a statement’ against their sworn enemy, President Trump of some sort of criminality, then they will agree to a massively reduced sentence. The propaganda media along with Dems in Congress can now run with this statement as clear cut guilty without there being trial where Trump can properly defend himself. This gives leverage in their minds for Muellers Russian collusion...

    Comedian Michelle Wolf's Netflix talk show,"The Break With Michelle Wolf," will not be returning to the streaming service for a second season. Deadline reported on Friday that Wolf's Netflix series had been canceled only about three months after its first episode aired. The show's last episode was released on July 29. Wolf has not yet made a statement about her show's cancellation. The "Daily Show" star gained widespread notoriety earlier this year after giving a speech during the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) dinner in which she repeatedly slammed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. "I actually really like...

    UPDATE (11:50 PM 8/13/18): The West Virginia House of Delegates has impeached all four of the state's Supreme Court justices. The Republican-led House on Monday night impeached Justice Beth Walker and the other justices for abusing their authority. The article says they failed to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over important matters such as working lunches, the use of state vehicles and office computers at home. Walker was the last of the four justices to be impeached. She had avoided impeachment earlier when the House voted not to pass an article against her for $131,000 in renovations she...

    Former FBI agents say the text messages are not the only reason Strzok was fired (Snip) “Strzok was under oath before Congress and he made statements that appeared to be false and refused to answer some questions, but he was going to get just a slap on the wrist,” said a former supervisory special agent from OPR adjudication, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the nature of their work. “There is absolutely no wiggle room when it comes to lack of candor in the FBI…unless you’re an SES (Senior Executive Service). Strzok’s firing went well beyond texting about...

    Watching the Strzok Hearings. Does anyone think the Dems are totally fraudulent? When will POTUS put a stop to this delaying. Strzok was in charge of a division yet knows nothing about the division, its rules, FBI rules, etc... Will POTUS wait to long to stop the Deep State? It sure seems that way.

    Former FBI official Peter Strzok has reacted to his firing from the FBI, saying on a newly-created Twitter account that he was “deeply saddened” by the decision. Strzok, the former deputy chief of counterintelligence, was fired Friday following an investigation into anti-Trump text messages he exchanged with his mistress, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page. “It has been an honor to serve my country and work with the fine men and women of the FBI,” Strzok wrote, linking to a Go Fund Me page that has been set up to raise money on his behalf. Deeply saddened by this decision. It...

    Holding Office From 'The Swamp' In today’s toxic environment found inside “the swamp,” I am often reminded of the old saw about evil flourishing when good people do nothing. I consider this a truism, an absolute, a defined value that is not zero. Unfortunately, I have had the opportunity to see this phenomenon up close and personal. As the Mueller investigation trundles along with the narrative unraveling at a shocking pace, one would think that sooner or later, the Congress would get fed up and would call a halt to this travesty. This investigation has cost the American people millions...
