    1) Just one more thing on ObamaCare Repeal: Since only 11 million people have ObamaCare, how will 24 million people die if it is repealed? Will an additional 13 million people be randomly shot? 2) Just one more thing on Donald Trump: If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent? 3) Just one more thing on equal pay: If women do the same job for less money, why do companies hire...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | July 19, 2018 | W. James Antle III
    If President Trump was colluding with or compromised by Russian President Vladimir Putin, how would his behavior be any different? So it has been asked countless times, phrased in various ways, since Helsinki. Trump deserves the lumps he has taken for his supine press conference performance and weak subsequent clarification, but he is not the only one whose conduct raises questions. If recent former heads of the FBI and CIA were partisan opponents of Trump abetting or even inciting a "deep state" revolt against the president of the United States, how would they behave any differently? Fired former FBI Director...

    In a late night vote, Israel's Parliament passed the 'nation-state' bill also called the Nationality Law by a 62-55 vote. The bill allows the state of Israel to encourage the establishment of Jewish only communities. It was hailed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said after the passage: "This is a defining moment, long live the stat of Israel!". The former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson spoke from the back benches of the House of Commons in what was dubbed his farewell speech today. Johnson said Prime Minister Theresa May was "dithering" about Brexit, but it is "not too late...

    Now, let me say a few things about the current hysteria in the MSM surrounding the Trump-Putin summit. The question that was asked to the POTUS was inappropriate. He is standing there, with Putin, the leader of the world’s second military super-power, and the media is playing games constantly, to put him on the spot. Did Russia interfere with the election? Do you believe our intel-agencies or do you believe Putin? Now, we’ve been told day in and day out that our intelligence agencies cannot be trusted; that they lied to get us into the war with Iraq. Right? Goes...

    Three judges of the UK's High Court heard the appeal of Tommy Robinson's lawyers in London today. They said they will rule by the end of the month. Robinson was arrested in Leeds, England May 25th and sent to jail within hours for contempt of court. He was livestreaming a video outside of a child sex abuse trial involving Muslim defendants. There have been a rash of such cases reported in the UK with authorities accused of trying to hide the cases from the public, limit punishment in cases discovered and even ignoring situations involving sex abuse of children by...
  • Russian Interference in 2018 Midterms?

    Vanity | July 18, 2018 | Behind the Blue Wall
    I'm just starting to hear the first inklings of the concern that Russians are going to "interfere" in the 2018 midterm elections on behalf of Republicans. They've accused those of us in the #WalkAway movement of being Russian bots. They've accused the NRA of being Russian agents. They're accusing the President of being a traitor. The former FBI Director and many others is urging all patriots to put aside "policies" and vote Democrat. We are rapidly approaching a point where the Deep State/Media/Democrat Party/etc. are defining Trump and the entire Republican Party as traitors. The logical extension of their position...

    It’s time to put parties aside Americans and start looking at the content of character that is destroying and dividing parties. Men and women who have shown that the people aren’t their prime objective, but self gain by any means possible. What have Americans seen thus far that began with voting? More lies, deceit and corruption that they can believe and Trump as barely “Drained the Swamp” After the move on Putin the game has changed, and what the deep state didn’t take the time to think about, is Putin has documents on Hillary Clinton and the Uranium One deal....

    The liberal media outrage over the last 24 hours is impressive. Predictable and stupid, but impressive. Donald Trump has been far tougher on Russia than obama ever was. Obama was a push over for Russia: Barack Obama sold out our Eastern European allies on missile defense. He slow-walked aid to Ukraine and did little more than shrug when Crimea was annexed. He said “never mind” on his own “red line” in Syria and turned a blind eye to Putin’s intervention there, in large part because of his obsessions with getting the Iran deal. The Russian meddling in our elections started...
  • Remember When John Brennan Used The CIA To Spy On Congress?

    Remember when Communist John Brennan used the CIA to spy on congress? Sorry, but THAT is treason!The CIA didn’t just spy on the Senate, they specifically spied on Senators who sat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, the group tasked with oversight of the CIA. Basically they were trying to gain control of the committee by digging up dirt on them, so that their oversight capability was hobbled through blackmail. Senator Mark Udall, Democrat of Colorado and another member of the Intelligence Committee, demanded Mr. Brennan’s resignation:"The C.I.A. unconstitutionally spied on Congress by hacking into the Senate Intelligence Committee computers,” he...

    Let us cut to the chase in what Obama was saying in his ‘surprise-paid’ South African speech Message for Citizen Obama, who is still fighting to bring America down with anti-American speeches made on foreign shores: “We love America’s 45th and plan to keep him!” It was Obama who once infamously lied during the failed imposition of ObamaCare: “If you like your doctor, you can keep him.”

    "Because Without America, There Is No Free World!" And that fact, more than any other, is why the very real devil so much wants us destroyed Many things bear repeating nowadays - everything worthwhile, anyway. Anyone, especially writers/commentators who are sharing their thinking, broadcast, quickly learn that at least two thirds of the audience they last had either weren’t listening or will have forgotten some of what was said by their next appearance. And at their next appearance, two thirds of the crowd will be brand-new. Such is certainly the case on the cyberstreets of the Internet. And that being...

    President Donald Trump's “Blame America First policy” has embarrassed America, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed on Tuesday. After Pres. Trump clarified remarks he made on Monday, in which he appeared to deny Russian attempts to meddle in the 2016 elections, Pelosi issued a statement condemning Trump for “his Blame America First policy” — and for, allegedly, cowering in front of Russian President Vladimir Putin during their summit on Monday. […] “The President’s walk-back creates more questions than answers, and the American people deserve to know whether the President really stands with the American people and our democracy.”...

    I have been staying in Middleton, Wisconsin for a couple of months. After an injury a couple of years ago, and a serious case of pneumonia, I have changed exercise from running to brisk walking.  Wearing t-shirt and shorts limits the options for concealed carry. Most of my walking in the area started about 0500, but on Monday, July 9th, I had stayed up late, coming back from a play at American Player's Theater in Spring Green, Wisconsin. I slept in. I didn't get out to exercise until after 0800. It was a mistake. Instead of a few cars...

    Under normal circumstances, the gift would delight any 12-year-old soccer fan: A ball used in the recent World Cup final. But these were not normal circumstances. And the ball in question was presented by Russian President Vladimir Putin to President Donald Trump during a bizarre moment in what has been widely condemned as an embarrassing and diplomatically disastrous moment for Trump’s White House and for the United States. Following a high-stakes summit in Helsinki Monday, Putin brought out a special red-and-white ball at his joint press conference with Trump. Putin handed the ball to his American counterpart, seemingly as a...

    President Trump told the mainstream media today that he agrees with the notion of the intelligence community that Russia interfered in the 2016 elections. He responded to the media frenzy over comments he made after his meeting Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Tonight Trump tweeted that 'the meeting between President Putin and myself was a great success, except in the Fake News Media!" In Nicaragua today government police and paramilitaries assaulted an opposition controlled neighborhood in the city of Masaya. Three were reported killed, dozens wounded with opposition youth being hauled away by the government forces..... The government of...

    North Korea leader Kim Jong Un launched -- not a missile -- but an unusual public attack on his own officials during inspections of several ongoing projects in the Hermit Kingdom, visits he said that left him “appalled” and “speechless” due to a lack of progress and attention to detail. Kim’s statements, released by the state-run Korean Central News Agency on Tuesday, were made during his “field guidance” visits at construction sites in the country. The despot’s disappointment was reportedly visible during a visit to the Orangchon Power Station construction site in the northeast. After officials briefed him about the...

    North Korea will return the remains of about 50 Americans killed during the Korean War over the next two weeks, the first set of repatriations since the recent summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, a report says. A senior U.S. defense official said on Tuesday that the move will take place within two weeks, though the exact timing and number of those being returned remain uncertain, according to a Reuters report. The development comes after a two-day meeting between U.S. and North Korean officials at the Demilitarized Zone. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at the beginning of...
