    DUTCH right-wing Freedom Party has soared ahead to lead the polls ahead of the parliamentary elections. The party, led by the controversial Geert Wilders, would beat prime minister Mark Rutte’s ruling conservative liberals if elections were held today. The Freedom Party (PVV) can count on 29 seats out of the 150-seat chamber, according to the latest IPSOS poll, making it the largest party in the Netherlands. In the space of one month the popularity of the PVV has surged with an increase of six seats.

    "Cheers" star John Ratzenberger was one of the first Hollywood types to support Donald Trump, telling "Fox and Friends" on Thursday that he was already on the “Trump train” when he went on Neil Cavuto’s show last year “pledging his support.” "It’s nice that adults are back in charge," Ratzenberger said of Trump's big win. "[It's like] okay kids, give us the keys to the car, you’ve done enough damage, now we will take over.”

    WEST CHESTER >> The Common Pleas Court judge’s decision allowing for more than a dozen provisional ballots cast in the race for the 156th Legislative District seat has paved the way for an eventual hand recount of the votes cast in the tight race and, ultimately, a decision on who has won. But that recount will take a back seat, at least temporarily, to a hand recount of the results of the presidential race in Chester County, a recount demanded by supporters of failed Green Party candidate Jill Stein and some disappointed Democrats. On Thursday, the county Board of Elections...

    PARIS — For Europe, 2016 has brought a series of political shocks: near-record numbers of immigrants arriving from the Middle East and Africa; a vote by Britain to leave the European Union and renewed threats by Russia to meddle on the continent. But 2017 could be even bumpier. There will be at least three elections in Europe next year: in Germany, France and the Netherlands for sure, and now perhaps in Italy, too. Just about everywhere, political establishments are being blamed for tepid growth, for too few jobs and for favoring global financial markets over the common citizen. The latest...

DOJ deputy press secretary David Jacobs cast the issue as “not yet ripe enough.” “From what we have heard these electors have been called names and warned they could be harmed if they don’t switch their vote to Secretary Clinton,” Jacobs recounted. “Name calling is protected freedom of speech.

    WND Exclusive Only 4 states can stop vote fraud 'No systematic oversight of the system' exists The raging debate about voter fraud has been hijacked by the left, says a leading expert on the issue, and the left is driving the narrative in a false direction using slick deception. The question is: What will President-elect Donald Trump do about it? When people think about “voter fraud,” they tend to think about the dead voting, people voting in multiple precincts or party machines paying homeless people to cast ballots. While those are all legitimate concerns, the mass fraud happens long before...

    When Donald Trump was elected president three weeks ago, many Democrats -- and even some Republicans -- openly fretted about whom he would pick to be in his Cabinet. Would he appoint only loyalists who affirmed his views? People with zero experience? People no one had ever heard of? With the announcement Thursday of Gen. James Mattis as his pick for secretary of defense, Trump continues to demonstrate that those early worries were way off base. In fact, Trump's Cabinet choices -- and some of his potential choices -- reflect a political savviness that many people haven't been willing to...

Those of you who have been with us for a while, will note our arguments against China’s MFN (Most Favored Nation) trade status have continually fallen on deaf ears within DC. Why? Because they are political ears paid to remain necessarily deaf, while various Chinese national interests have taken influence over our legislative priorities on trade and commerce.

    What I am about to write may be seen, even by myself if it were not me writing, as conspiracy, paranoia, hysterics. Except for one thing: I lived through two elections in Washington State where I saw the same pattern repeated that is emerging now before our eyes. It is theft pure and simple. I do not do this to create fear or hysteria. I will write what I think can and must be done to stop this theft in the making. As you read, I will try to keep it short and endeavor to equip you with an awareness...

    The difference between the Democrat and Republican party has always been the distinction between one side who will do anything, say anything, manipulate anything, and fight to the death to get their way – and the other party being polite Republican surrender monkeys.

    Because of you, the first recount is funded. We have two more to go! Congratulations on meeting the recount costs for Wisconsin! Raising money to pay for the first round so quickly is a miraculous feat and a tribute to the power of grassroots organizing. Now that we have completed funding Wisconsin's recount (which is due on Friday), we can begin to tackle the funding for Pennsylvania's recount (due Monday) and then Michigan's recount (due Wednesday). The breakdown of these costs is described below. On November 23, the Stein/Baraka Green Party Campaign launched an effort to ensure the integrity of...

    The professional left have nothing left. It’s all racist now… all of it. Seemingly oblivious to former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi using the term in 2007, Marxist Moonbat Editor (in full hipster repose) from Southern Poverty Law Center now claiming “drain the swamp” equals racism, or something:

    BERLIN — German Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt’s political future is tied to the success of imposing a toll on foreign drivers using the country’s autobahns, and despite being slapped down by the European Commission he isn’t giving up on the idea.“The tolls are coming,” Dobrindt told the Bild newspaper on Friday, following news that the EU and Germany are about to settle their dispute over introducing the payments. “I am confident that we will be able to close negotiations with the EU Commission on a positive note in November.”Dobrindt told reporters he expected tolls to come into effect after national...

    If Republicans could merge the two approaches, they could continue to win demographically changing swing states. Two of the most consequential elections of 2016 took place among the same voters in the same state. Pennsylvania effectively put Donald Trump over the top of the 270 electoral-college votes needed to win the presidency, and Pat Toomey’s reelection helped secure a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate for at least another two years. Both of these results were remarkable. Trump succeeded in a state where Bob Dole, George W. Bush (twice), John McCain, and Mitt Romney all failed. Toomey won a second...
