    I was talking to a Russian a few years ago regarding the corruption in Moscow, and their comment was, “All politicians want to do is get the power, then they can just steal anything they want. Money is the reason behind all the problems in our country.” I had forgotten about that comment until earlier this week when I had to drive through one of the s—thole cities along the Connecticut coast...
  • Irish PM: Crisis Facing Europe Not Mass Migration But Rise of Patriotic Parties

    Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has declared that the crisis facing the EU is not mass immigration, but European resistance to importing large numbers of migrants from the third world. “This isn’t so much a migrant crisis as it is a political crisis,” the Irish Taoiseach (prime minister) said of disagreement within the EU over how to deal with illegal immigrants arriving to the continent. “Europe needs migration,” he insisted, claiming the belief that hundreds of thousands of migrants from the world’s poorest countries arriving in boats and storming the EU’s frontiers is a problem that has been invented by...

    How frustrating. I asked google home (gift from brother) to "Hey google, play some patriotic music". What I got was a bunch of condescending bluegrass crap. No battle hymn of the republic, no star spangled banner, no lee greenwood, no armed forces western.....just a bunch of crap that only the CA libtards actually think is patriotic music.

  • WSJ: The Tax Cuts Will Grow the Economy by Much More than Expected

    Tax cuts are going to grow the economy by much more than expected. That’s the verdict of the Wall Street Journal‘s prestigious “Heard on the Street” column. Importantly, Heard on the Street is run by the news side of the WSJ, not its tax-cut loving editorial page. So there’s no particular pro-tax cut or pro-Republican bias at work here. Some of the pro-growth changes include eliminating any delay to the corporate tax cuts, lowering of the top individual rate, lowering rates for most taxpayers, and increasing the child tax credit. The latter is particularly important because middle-class households are “more...

    Are there any other fans here of Amazon's "Patriot?" I thought it was going to be your standard international intrigue show since I saw it involved Iran and their nuclear development. Therefore I almost didn't watch it. However, I am glad I did because it turns out that this series is HILARIOUS. I don't want to spoil it for anybody else by going into detail but if you haven't watched it you are in for a great treat. I haven't been this entertained since I started watching "Better Call Saul." I have been binge watching it and just finished watching...

    Since retired Gen. John Kelly became White House chief of staff, news outlets have portrayed him as the disciplinarian sent to impose order over an unruly President Donald Trump. Kelly rejects that scenario -- when it comes to taming, he has other fish to fry. To wit, at Thursday's press briefing, Kelly tongue-lashed the usually feisty White House press corps so relentlessly that in 18 minutes he reduced the usually swaggering scribes and talking heads into shamed silence. After Kelly slammed reporters for taking a "sacred" moment -- the notification of family when a military member is killed in action...
  • From combat Marine to celebrity chef: How John Besh built a restaurant empire post-Katrina

    The foundation of John Besh's culinary celebrity was built in the late 1990s, on the North Shore. He grew up in Slidell, the son of a former fighter pilot paralyzed by a drunk driver while riding his bike. Besh was 9 at the time. By 1999, when Food & Wine Magazine named him one of the country's Best New Chefs for his cooking at Artesia, a now-closed restaurant in Abita Springs, Besh was a Marine combat veteran of the first Gulf War who'd apprenticed at restaurants in France and Germany. The fact that Besh was a precociously gifted craftsman with...

    An Air Force One veteran turned Indiana high school referee was slammed with an 18-month suspension for choosing to walk out of a game he was refereeing after he saw an athlete kneeling during the National Anthem. Jim Saddler, 67, said he couldn’t help himself when he saw a volleyball player taking a knee during the “Star Spangled Banner.” He said that he was barely able to contain his anger when he saw fans “sitting on their butts” during the anthem, but seeing an athlete kneeling was what pushed him over the edge. “What they did just upset me so...

    The Turkish government is still in talks with Washington about the possible sale of Patriot missile defense systems, a senior Turkish official said Friday. Turkey's main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) Deputy Chairman Öztürk Yılmaz, who visited Washington last week, told a group of Turkish journalists on Friday that Turkey contacted Americans about the Patriot systems two to three weeks ago. The Turkish official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed Yılmaz's remarks and said that Turkey was routinely conducting this kind of talks and Turkish expectations on the deal has not changed. "For us, technology transfer and joint production...

    Milo Yiannopoulos- Berkeley “Free Speech Week,” an event organized by student group the Berkeley Patriot and underwritten by MILO Inc., will occur as scheduled, running from September 24 to September 27 on the campus of UC Berkeley, despite attempts by the university to use bureaucratic maneuvers and strategic media leaks to disrupt the event and dissuade headline speakers from attending. The paperwork was filed on deadline, and MILO, Inc. transferred the required $65,758.76 to UC Berkeley to arrive at 8 AM ET Monday. Nevertheless, the University has not yet indicated it will grant access to Wheeler and Zellerbach. This move...

    Original video recorded Feb. 17th, 2017. Over the past few weeks, Redneck Revolt has been communicating with a former member of a III% Patriot Militia based out of Ohio. Peter made contact with our organization after questioning the basis for an upcoming operation that his local militia group was asked to be involved in, that would have had III% members mobilize for an armed response against a Black Lives Matter protest. He expressed that after 5 years involved in various Patriot groups, a recent personal experience had made him decide he could no longer be part of an organization...

    PHOENIX (AP) — The political career of Joe Arpaio ended last year when the six-term sheriff of metro Phoenix known for cracking down on illegal immigration and housing inmates in tents outside in the desert heat was trounced in an election that focused on his own legal troubles. Now, the 85-year-old who called himself America’s toughest sheriff will face his day of reckoning in court for defying a judge’s order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants. Arpaio’s trial starts Monday on a criminal contempt-of-court charge for prolonging the patrols for nearly a year and a half. The judge later...

    In a never-ending battle of freedom versus authoritarian censorship, Evergreen College took center stage once again Thursday as the lawless Antifa gang faced off with the pro-Trump group Patriot Prayer and officers in riot gear. Even the presence of riot gear-clad officers wasn’t enough to keep lawless Antifa anarchists from attacking the peaceful free speech demonstrators and assaulting the event’s organizer, Joey Gibson, with pepper spray. The free speech rally came on the heels of a tumultuous few weeks at Evergreen College which started with an email from biology professor Bret Weinstein who responded he would not leave campus for...

    AUSTIN — Richard Overton is right where he wants to be. He’s sitting in a lawn chair on the front porch of the Austin home he built nearly 70 years ago, working on his fifth Tampa Sweet cigar on a 91-degree sunny day. The smooth tunes of the Isley Brothers flow from a portable speaker. Birds are chirping in the late afternoon breeze. “I’m feeling pretty good today,” Overton says, emphasizing the word pretty, because any day spent on this porch smoking cigars is a pretty good day for the 111-year-old. This is where you’ll find the nation’s oldest veteran...
