    Top-level people in the world of intelligence and independent journalism report that House Oversight chairman Trey Gowdy effectively blocked investigations into the FBI spying on the President Donald Trump campaign. This is not the first time Gowdy, who endorsed Marco Rubio in the presidential primaries, has shut down an investigation on behalf of the establishment. But the fact that many traditional conservative outlets carry water and run interference for Gowdy, painting him as a hero, makes it harder to call Gowdy out. Thomas Paine, who represents the team of connected pro-America journalists and operatives at True Pundit, revealed Gowdy’s nefariousness.

    Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen Marco Rubio (R-FL) defended the FBI’s action during the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump by saying they were investigating individuals with suspicious histories connected to Russia. Rubio said, “As far as what I have seen to date, it appears that there was an investigation not of the campaign but of certain individuals who have a history that we should be suspicious of that predate the presidential campaign of 2015, 2016.” He continued, “When individuals like that are in the orbit of a major political campaign in America, the FBI, who is in charge...

    Sen. Marco Rubio is once again breaking from Donald Trump ... defending Colin Kaepernick's right to protest and telling TMZ Sports why he absolutely SHOULD be on an NFL roster. "Look, I support his right to stand for what he does," the republican senator tells us ... "I don't agree with what he did but I support his right to do it." "But if we're just talking football ... there aren't 63 better quarterbacks in the world." FYI, Rubio is assuming there are 64 quarterbacks currently on NFL rosters. Rubio said he's not sure if the NFL owners actually colluded...

    He has gone just as low, but she’s a comedian, not president, so she does deserve a bit more leeway when it comes to making jokes. At Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner, comedian Michelle Wolf made some jokes about White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that have a lot of people, particularly on the right, very upset. ... Sanders was visibly upset the entire time, and many people on the right rushed to her defense — saying that Wolf’s jokes were inappropriate and an outrage. Here’s the thing, though: Many of those same people have absolutely no problem with...

    If you don’t think Socialism exists in the U.S., it’s to wake up. College campuses are havens for Socialist activity, and one California college — go figure — is actively supporting it. California-based Scripps College will be hosting a Socialist love-fest with actual members of Venezuela’s Socialist government. They will talk about the joys of starving people and making people who disagree with the government disappear. Okay, they’re not going to say it like that, but you get the idea. The speakers — as well as the college — will paint Socialism with a democracy paintbrush and call it art....
  • Media Seek To Destroy Laura Ingraham Only Because She’s A Conservative Woman

    The pretext being used to destroy a conservative woman, Fox News star Laura Ingraham, is that she accused a 17-year-old of “whining.” Even after apologizing to anti-gun activist David Hogg, the corporate media and the organized left, with a lot of help from gutless corporations, are still determined to dismantle Ingraham’s entire professional life — to shut a conservative woman up by removing her platform, all because she accused a teenager of “whining.” Keep in mind that Hogg is not just any 17-year-old. He is a foul-mouthed hurler of extremist, partisan venom and a shield for a media eager to...

    U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio departed from his Miami colleagues Tuesday and said the decision by Commerce Secretary Ross on Monday to include a citizenship question in the 2020 Census is, essentially, no big deal. “I personally don’t see the problem with it,″ Rubio told reporters at a “pen and pad” briefing in Tallahassee Tuesday. “I think there’s a lot of noise being made about it.” Rubio’s comments diverge from the opinion of other members of Congress from South Florida who have said they fear some people could be dissuaded from answering the census if the citizenship question is asked. It...

    U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio was in full-alarm mode Tuesday on the second day of a two-week swing around the state during the spring recess. He warned that President Donald Trump‘s scheduled meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jung-un is potentially “dangerous and counter-productive.” He warned of China’s “unprecedented” and steady attempt at displacing the U.S. as the world economic power. And he warned the National Rifle Association that if it doesn’t focus its energy on reducing mass shootings, the Second Amendment could be at stake. “I would argue today that perhaps the single, biggest threats to the Second Amendment are...

    The Drudge Report, the prolific news aggregation website ran by Matt Drudge, has a new poll that shows its audience favors firing special counsel Robert Mueller and the results are not even close. Currently, 266,943 voters support firing Robert Mueller where as 77,000 voters are against his firing. While the poll cannot be counted as a scientific poll of the general public, it is helpful in gauging where President Donald Trump's base and many conservatives stand on the issue.Drudge's polling in the past was an early indicator of who the GOP Presidential nominee was going to be. For example after a...

    Responding to legislation that cleared the Florida Legislature last week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio has introduced a pair of bills in Congress, one allowing Florida to stay in daylight saving time year-round and the other putting the entire nation on year-round daylight saving time. Florida lawmakers passed a bill sponsored by state Sen. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, that asks Congress to permit the state to maintain daylight saving time all year. Congress currently allows states to opt out of daylight saving time and stay in standard time year-round, but not the other way around. “Reflecting the will of the Sunshine State,...

    On Wednesday, Jake Tapper hosted a CNN town hall special episode with survivors and relatives of the victims of the Florida school shooting titled “Stand Up: The Students of Stoneman Douglas Demand Action.” As one might suspect, this was not exactly a fair and balanced forum for debating gun control. Pro-gun control student activists, teachers, and parents of murdered students dominated the discussion and posed most of the questions to the town hall’s five guest speakers.Florida Senator Marco Rubio and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch were among those five who went up on stage to answer questions, but they did not...

    Wednesday's CNN town hall to promote gun control and gun grabbing was off the rails from the start. So-called moderator Jake Tapper sat back as the wild crowd targeted Republican Senator Marco Rubio (Fla.) with boos and jeers for basically just being there. The wildest moment allowed by Tapper was when Parkland, Florida student Cameron Kasky smeared the Senator by equating him to the shooter that killed 17 of his classmates. And Tapper thanked him for all of it. “I'm sorry, I know I'm not supposed to do this, but I'm not going to listen to that. Senator Rubio, it's...

    SUNRISE, Fla. — Republican Sen. Marco Rubio was put on the defensive Wednesday by angry students, teachers and parents who are demanding stronger gun-control measures after the shooting rampage that claimed 17 lives at a Florida high school. One of those confronting the Florida senator at a CNN's "Stand Up" town hall Wednesday night was Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime was killed on Feb. 14 with 16 others. Rubio was the lone Republican at the nationally broadcast gathering after Florida's GOP Gov. Rick Scott and President Donald Trump declined invitations to appear at the event in Sunrise, Florida. ......
