    Actual headline: Pro-Trump Pentagon whistleblower who had his security clearance YANKED says investigators in his case given MEDALS Deep State: The scandal surrounding the POTUS Trump-supporting Pentagon whistleblower who tried to report inappropriate payments to a Deep State asset the FBI was using to spy on the president’s 2016 campaign continues to grow. It now appears as though investigators who were ‘looking into’ 12-year DoD analyst Adam Lovinger’s allegations were incentivized to punish him...

    Embattled FBI Agent Peter Strzok, embroiled in the spying and wiretapping scandal of President Trump, grew up in Africa for a stint while his father worked for companies that have long been linked as operational and funding cut-outs for the Central Intelligence Agency, according to records.Now, as the spying and wiretapping scandal of the FBI has implicated former CIA Director John Brennan and Barack Obama’s CIA, questions have emerged about the FBI Strzok’s connections to the CIA.

    Name ONE business where employees can openly revolt against the boss, take it to social media, and expect no repercussions. In the military, that's called mutiny. In the private sector, it's called gross insubordination. But when it comes to partisan federal employees, they believe openly dissing the boss their right and when there are ramifications to their actions, they get all whiny. While the Democrats and their media would have us all believe these are poor government workers caught up in a Republican witch hunt to exact revenge on Obama loyalists, there's a little more to this that we've covered...

    North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un has ordered an increase in security at such sites as “hostile elements” within the hermit state deface the symbols. Statues and murals depicting the three Kim leaders have been targeted by citizens furious at the imbalance in the country. Kim has increased the number of monuments to his dynasty during his reign in an attempt to piggy-back on the popularity of previous leaders. But with famine and starvation frequently sweeping the country, there is a growing anger at Kim and his one-party government.

    AMES, Iowa - Rep. Steve King , an Iowa Republican and Ted Cruz supporter, says Donald Trump bought his endorsements. Trump recently received high profile endorsements from Maricopa County Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, and Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Jr. King reiterated his statement about the endorsements to the Daily Caller on Saturday during a Cruz rally at the Gateway Hotel and stressed that he "knows things." "He has, from a regular person's perspective, unlimited resources and he's willing to use whatever access he has in order to get the endorsements that he wants," King...

    The Secret Service’s assistant director urged that unflattering information the agency had in its files about a congressman critical of the service should be made public, according to a government watchdog report released Wednesday. “Some information that he might find embarrassing needs to get out,” Assistant Director Edward Lowery wrote in an e-mail to a fellow director on March 31, commenting on an internal file that was being widely circulated inside the service. “Just to be fair.” Two days later, a news Web site reported that Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, had applied to be...

    Border Patrol agents gave eye-opening testimony on Capitol Hill last week, saying that they “face retribution” for reporting large groups of illegal immigrants. “Management will either take them out of the field and assign them to processing detainees at the station or assign them to a fixed position in low volume areas as a punishment,” border agent Chris Cabrera said before the Senate Homeland Security Committee on Tuesday. These revelations come as the Department of Homeland Security confirms that it released more than 30,000 illegal aliens onto U.S. streets last year. …

    The couple who brought a pre-filled out Obamacare voter registration card to the attention of the media, has not stepped forward because they fear government retribution. The unnamed La Mesa, California couple made national headlines over the weekend when they received a voter registration card from Cover California that had an “x” pre-marked in the box next to the Democratic Party. The wife told The Daily Caller Tuesday in a phone interview that she knows of at least two other people who have received similar letters — one in San Yisidro the other in Chula Vista Urbana — but she...

    In today’s Gospel the Lord is teaching us, by his grace, to break the cycle of retribution and hatred. When someone harms me I may well experience anger. And in my anger I may well seek to get back at the offender. If I do that, then Satan has two victories and brought the anger and retribution to a new level. And most likely the one who originally harmed me will take exception to my retribution and inflict more harm on me. And so the cycle continues and escalates. Satan loves this.Break the Cycle – But the Lord has dispatched...

    There are conversations taking place all over America. They are not being screamed from the mountain tops, they are being whispered from one end of the nation to the other. The Marxists have decided that Sandy Hook Elementary is a good enough reason to go ahead with the gun confiscation model used by totalitarian governments the world over. Senators, Governors, Representatives and the President have all come out to warn us that they are coming. How they come and how hard are the only questions left to be answered. We know who is proposing gun confiscation, or registration in preparation...

    After failing to mention the Tea Party by name on the stump in 2012, President Barack Obama mentioned the movement during at least five stump speeches on Thursday and Friday. Running against the Tea Party movement that successfully stymied his grassroots agenda and energized conservatives and independents to give Republicans in the House a majority, Obama said Mitt Romney would "rubber-stamp the Tea Party agenda in Congress." Jenny Beth Martin, National Coordinator of Tea Party Patriots, said Obama was continuing to divide Americans by badmouthing "millions of grassroots" Tea Party activists across the nation. "In a single speech today, our...

    By the time the CH-47 transport helicopter descended to 150 feet above an unprotected landing zone in Afghanistan around 2 a.m. on Aug. 6, the element of surprise had been lost. Hours earlier, two other Chinooks had deposited 47 Army Rangers at another nearby landing site, undetected. The landing triggered a nighttime ground and aerial firefight that raged for several hours as a few Taliban “squirters,” as the military called them, tried to escape from the targeted compound and regrouped with other fighters. *snip* When the third chopper — carrying 38 passengers and crew, and one dog, in a reinforcement...
  • With 51 Senators, GOP can eliminate mandate

    06/28/2012 6:03:28 PM PDT · by TurboZamboni · 24 replies
    Mitt Romney just now called for immediate entire repeal of Obamacare. Even with a GOP House, GOP Senate, and GOP President, that will be hard, because Dems can and will filibuster a bill, and a 60-vote GOP majority is not in the cards any time soon. But repealing the individual mandate takes only 51 votes (50, if a Republican is the vice president). You see, Senators can’t filibuster a bill passed under “budget reconciliation.” Since Chief Justice John Roberts ruled today that Obama’s individual mandate is a tax, Republicans, it seems to me, could simply lower the tax for not...
