    Don’t get me wrong, amigos. The Fake News Media does not term the recent UN vote in the same manner as does this column. Instead they reported (gloated) that: “UN voted overwhelmingly to condemn US embargo of Cuba….In a slap to the United States, the U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly approved a resolution Thursday condemning the American economic embargo of Cuba and rejected proposed U.S. amendments strongly criticizing the lack of human rights in the island country.”The occasion was the annual and ritual UN vote against the U.S. “embargo” of mass-murdering, mass-torturing, terror-sponsoring and kleptocratic Cuba, which sits prominently on the...

    An effort to allegedly add Democrat votes after Election Day in Florida is potentially grounds for a RICO investigation, an election fraud expert says. The Government Accountability Institute (GAI) research director Eric Eggers exclusively told SiriusXM PatriotsBreitbart News Tonights Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak that a report revealing that Florida Democrats asked voters to submit absentee ballots after Election Day is a smoking gun and could possibly lead to a racketeering investigation. Eggers said: I spoke with a Republican attorney today who is quite familiar with this and connected to the inter-workingsand they believe that it is not...

    I realize the Democrats took over the House, which is not new news. But I'm tired of hearing Nancy Pelosi and other liberals in Congress say that now we need to start working together. Now we need bipartisanship. Really? Where have they been for the last umpteen years? Since at least 2016, I haven't noticed the Democrats clamoring for compromise and cooperation in Washington or on CNN. Suddenly Nancy Pelosi wants to practice bipartisanship? Yeah, right. I agree with President Trump. Now that Democrats are in charge of the House and looking under every bed for excuses to impeach Donald...

    What does it take to get a U.S. House member to...very publicly threaten to nuke American citizens who want to defend their constitutional rights under the Second Amendment? Nothing more than pushing back on Twitter against that congressman, Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.)'s proposal from earlier this year to fully ban and buy back every one of what he wants to designate as "assault weapons" with the added bonus of "criminally prosecut[ing] any who choose to defy it." Rep. Swalwell, willing to make sure the war against any possible American citizen resistance over gun confiscation doesn't fall into the endless quagmire of...

    In a speech to fellow Republicans in May, U.S. Rep. Mimi Walters issued an ominous warning about the coming election California Democrats, she said, were coming for all of us. She was right. The congresswomans stunning defeat Thursday in the heart of Orange County, once a nationally known Republican stronghold, extended a Democratic rout that has seen five GOP-held House seats fall in the state, with another one threatened. Last weeks election delivered mixed results around the U.S. Republicans held the Senate, Democrats seized the House but in California voters turned the state an even deeper shade...

    The Mental Recession ^ | 11/17/2018 | MenRec
    Following Donald Trumps inauguration, Michelle Obama admits she sobbed for 30 minutes as the weight of trying to be perfect for eight years was finally off her shoulders. The former First Lady described her tearful breakdown in an interview with Oprah Winfrey to discuss her new memoir, Becoming. Despite shredding President Trump in the book and admitting she couldnt even force a smile at one point during the inaugural proceedings, Obama says her breakdown on the plane shortly thereafter had nothing to do with him, but everything to do with her. When I got on the plane, I sobbed for...

    newsok.com ^ | 11/16/18 | John McCarter
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has apparently decided to give a middle finger to Sen. Jeff Flake, the retiring Arizona Republican who says he'll vote against judicial nominees in committee and on the floor until McConnell allows a floor vote on his legislation to protect the Mueller investigation. At the end of the day Thursday, McConnell filed cloture on two of the very worst of Trump's nominees: district court nominee Thomas Farr of North Carolina and 8th Circuit nominee Jonathan Kobes. The votes will happen when the Senate returns after Thanksgiving. Farr has been waiting for a vote since the...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | November 16, 2018
    Elections have a way of blowing up partisan conceitssee what happened to the Democratic Partys Electoral College lock in 2016. This year Democrats busted one of their own cherished myths by proving that Republican gerrymanders werent preventing them from retaking the House of Representatives. Theres a lesson here for voters and judges. State legislatures have been drawing congressional boundaries to favor one party or another since Americas founding. During the 40 years of sustained Democratic control of the House in the late 20th century, this worked in the Democrats favor. As political scientist Matt Grossmann has shown, Democrats sometimes enjoyed...
  • No Judges Confirmed This Week

    This will be a weekly post. Count remains at 84 judges confirmed. 53 District Court judges 29 Circuit Court judges 2 Supreme Court justices This week Senator Jeff Flake said he will not vote to confirm (either in Judiciary or on the floor) any further judges until a bill to protect Robert Mueller is voted on. McConnell killed such a bill and Senator John Barasso of Wyoming said that the Senate will confirm judges with or without Jeff Flake. On January 3rd, this obstacle to conservatism will be off the Judiciary Committee and out of the Senate and confirmations will...

    ... Since the World Scrabble Championship began in 1991, all winners have been male. The North American Scrabble Championship has had one female winner (in 1987) since its founding in 1978. All eight finalists in this years French World Scrabble Championships were men. Competitive Scrabble constitutes a natural experiment for testing the feminist worldview. According to feminist dogma, males and females are identical in their aptitudes and interests. If men dominate certain data-based, abstract fields like engineering, physics and math, that imbalance must, by definition, be the result of sexismwhether a patriarchal culture that discourages girls from math or implicit...

    The wreckage of a submarine which went missing with 44 crew on board a year ago has been found, the Argentine navy says. The ARA San Juan submarine disappeared 430km (270 miles) off the Argentine coast on 15 November 2017. The navy stopped its rescue mission two weeks after the sub's disappearance. However, a year and a day after it went missing, officials announced it had been found 800m (2,620ft) below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Vanity: Why Does Deep State/MSM Want us to Hate Saudi Arabia?

    VANITY
    Saudis have always run a brutal dictatorship. We needed the oil. They owned the Bushes. We looked the other way. Obama bowed before them literally. We look the other way with China, which is an even more brutal dictatorship (in terms of murdering their own citizens). Why is the CIA leaking stories to CNN about Jamal Khashoggi's murder? Why is the MSM running story after story about this to shape American popular opinion? I'm confused why they want me to care. Please fill me in on the real explanation. Thanks.

    DeVos revealed Thursday that she plans to end the Obama administrations rules for investigating allegations of sexual violence on campus. DeVos havent unveiled new initiatives yet, but indicated that in order to replace the current policy, she will seek public feedback and combine institutional and expert knowledge. Under the U.S. Department of Educations proposed regulations by DeVos, schools must let an accused person cross-examine their accuser through a third party, will be able to use a higher standard of evidence to decide an accused students guilt, and will not have to investigate reports of off-campus sexual assaults involving students.
