    Well, after giving one of the most non-introspective speeches on the Senate floor regarding his sexual harassment allegations, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is now a private citizen. The Minnesota Democrat was hit with sexual misconduct allegations around the Thanksgiving holiday last year. He’s been accused of groping multiple women, forcibly kissing one as well. As of today, Stuart Smalley has left the building.

    ormer Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., is considering running for the recently vacated U.S. Senate seat held by Al Franken. Ive had people contact me and urge me to run for that Senate seat, Bachmann said recently on televangelist Jim Bakker's television show. And the only reason I would run is for the ability to take these principles into the United States Senate and to be able to advocate for these principles.

    Today, the Donald J.

    Associated Press ^ | May 5, 2016 3:38 PM EDT | David Pitt
    Three campaign advisers to 2012 presidential candidate Ron Paul were convicted Thursday in a federal case alleging they conspired to cover up the campaigns payments to a former Iowa state senator who had agreed to endorse their boss. Prosecutors said it is illegal to cause a campaign to file inaccurate spending documents. Theyve pursued charges since July 2015 when a grand jury first indicted the men. Pauls campaign chairman Jesse Benton, campaign manager John Tate and deputy manager Dimitri Kesari argued they broke no laws when they paid a video production company, which passed on $73,000 to former Sen. Kent...

    Former congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) recently joined historian David Barton on the show “Foundations of Freedom,” where she spoke out against the progressive income tax system, saying that class warfare rhetoric leads people to “violate the 10th Commandment.” “It’s appealing to the lower interest of man, and it appeals to the American people to violate the 10th Commandment,” Bachmann said. “We are told, ‘Don’t covet’ — in other words don’t be jealous and don’t want what your neighbor has … Instead politicians say, ‘Oh no, no. Your neighbor is rich, because he stole it from you.’” She continued, “That’s not...

Also on the tour is former Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, who joined Perkins on the program on Wednesday to share her view that biblical prophecy is being fulfilled all around her and that it was more urgent than ever to convert as many people as possible — including Jews — to Christianity to prepare for the imminent return of Christ. “Almost every article in the paper” has to do with conflicts...

    Ron Paul revels in the fact that he is the presidential candidate of America's small donors, receiving more contributions under $200 than any other Republican seeking the White House in 2012. But, like every other GOP presidential contender, he also has a mega-millionaire "sugar daddy" helping to fund a super PAC that is promoting Paul's candidacy. Yet while Newt Gingrich underwriter Sheldon Adelson and Rick Santorum super-supporter Foster Friess have shared the campaign stage - and the national political spotlight - with their candidates, Paul's benefactor, San Francisco entrepreneur Peter Thiel, has never met the Texas congressman he's aiding.

Agenda 21 candidate favored by the bankster/globalist manipulators; a very alarming, perhaps treasonous allianceRomney has a track record of strong ties to the homosexual agendaThe global governance (para-Marxist) movement is about sexual as well as socioeconomic revolutionRon Paul has numerous problematic liaisons that call his conservative persona into question For more on Thiel, see Follow Ron Pauls Money too: Peter...

Are you willing to put your principles ahead of your income or pension or do you regularly suck it up, and save your muttering until you get home? Everyone looks out for their interests.

    The Clinton Foundation has come under scrutiny over the past few months with the scandal concerning Hillary Clinton's personal email server being used for State Department business. This week, Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann said the Clinton Foundation was nothing more than an international money laundering ring. In speaking with Newsmax TV, Bachmann said, "This is the most transparent family in the United States, right? The woman who won't hand over her server, who wasn't supposed to do her government work on that server in the first place, who violated department rules who, in all likelihood, probably violated US federal rules,...

Former Secretary of State Matt Schultz told the Quad-City Times on Wednesday he is endorsing Cruz for president.

"He's not going to back down from a fight." In a letter to two dozen members of the Cruz...

    Ted Cruz thinks Americans should arm themselves against "tyranny," and Lindsey Graham thinks that's crazy. As incredible as it sounds, theres an argument going on right now between two Republican senators (and, potentially, two Republican candidates for the presidency) over whether the American citizenry should be ready to fight a war against the federal government. The two senators in question are Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham, and they cant seem to agree whether the Second Amendment serves as bulwark against government tyranny. It all started with a fundraising email Cruz sent making the case that The 2nd Amendment to the...
