    As he entered a New Year’s even party at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort Tuesday evening, Rudy Giuliani stopped to talk to several reporters. During the course of his two-minute discussion with them, he laid out the high points of what he says was an organized plot by “the highest levels” of the Obama Administration to literally loot the Ukraine for millions during the Obama presidency. Giuliani, a former U.S. attorney, has spent the better part of the last year investigating the activities of Joe and Hunter Biden, along with other Democrat luminaries, as they relate to the Ukraine on behalf...

    Former President Obama is still withholding that Obama endorsement that all Democrats covet, and that some, such as his former vice president, Joe Biden, see themselves as probably holding a claim to. Obama's never been one for tradition, though, and after making a big dig on "old men" running for president, which could have only meant old Joe, and twisting the knife a second time to claim that if women ran the world, the world would be a better place - something that at the time was seen as an endorsement of his wife Michelle, we now learn that he's...

    We who elected President Trump understood our elected officials and the Deep State were sandbagging Trump and self-dealing public funds. It was no secret that President Trump is no angel, unpresidential, blunt, and crude, and a disruptor. Trump was hired to drain the swamp. I watched this kabuki theater unfold over the last several years. Through my eyes as a shopworn gumshoe, I will explain what is happening. My investigative curiosity was first piqued by the ATF Fast and Furious scandal and continues through the recent House impeachment show trial. There is a common element running through all of these...

    Breitbart News, citing an NBC investigative report, reported that Chinese students have some very easy ways of staying in the U.S. after they get their studies behind them.  Numerous U.S.-based companies that got Optional Practical Training (OPT) work permits for Chinese graduates have quietly closed their doors following an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) crackdown and media investigations, according to a report by NBC Bay Area. “NBC’s efforts to contact officers at 14 suspicious companies [who got many OPT work permits] were met with a series of dead-end business addresses and disconnected phone numbers, ” said the NBC Bay Area report....

    Rudy Giuliani Snaps At Fox News’ Ed Henry: "THEY'RE GOING TO TRY TO KILL ME" President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani snapped at Fox News host Ed Henry during an interview Saturday, accusing Henry of covering up news about Joe Biden and Ukraine. “Are you afraid, Mr. Mayor that you could be indicted?” Henry asked. “Oh, wow, how long have you known me, Ed?” Giuliani said, adding, “Do you think I’m afraid? Do you think I get afraid? I did the right thing. I represented my client in a very, very effective way. I was so effective that I’ve discovered...

    As Chick-fil-A expands globally and into more liberal parts of the U.S., the chicken chain plans to change which charities it donates to after years of bad press and protests from the LGBT community. Beginning next year, Chick-fil-A will move away from its current philanthropic structure, Bisnow has learned. After donating to more than 300 charitable organizations this year, the Atlanta-based fast-food chain will instead focus on three initiatives with one accompanying charity each: education, homelessness and hunger. "There's no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are," Chick-fil-A...

    Undercover journalist David Daleiden faced a major setback today in San Francisco’s U.S. District Court after a jury handed down a multi-million dollar (over $2.2 million) verdict under the federal Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations (RICO) law, among others, in favor of abortion giant Planned Parenthood. The Thomas More Society has defended Daleiden against Planned Parenthood since the multibillion-dollar abortion provider sued him for exposing the corporation’s role in alleged illegal baby body parts trafficking. The lawsuit was brought by Planned Parenthood Federation of America and ten of its abortion affiliates after Daleiden’s 2015 release of a series of investigative videos...

    A federal jury found Friday that an anti-abortion activist illegally secretly recorded workers at Planned Parenthood clinics and is liable for violating federal and state laws. The jury ordered him, the Center for Medical Progress and other parties to pay nearly $2.3 million in damages. The jury awarded $1 million in damages, but offenses under the federal Racketeer and Corrupt Organizations Act are considered acts of organized crime and penalties awarded for them are automatically tripled. After a six-week civil trial, the San Francisco jury found David Daleiden trespassed on private property and committed other crimes in recording the 2015...

    San Francisco, CA — Testimony has concluded in the punitive RICO case brought by Planned Parenthood against pro-life activists, including Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman, who exposed Planned Parenthood’s participation in the illegal trafficking of aborted baby tissues and organs. It is a trial that has had its high and low moments. Of note recently was the admission under oath by a representative from Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) that is still has a contract with Planned Parenthood to supply them aborted baby body parts. That means the organ trafficking continues — and so do Planned Parenthood’s potential crimes! In another development,...

    A US fast-food chain will cease trading at its first UK outlet amid a row over donations to anti-LGBT groups. Gay rights campaigners called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A, which opened its first branch at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading on 10 October. A spokeswoman for the centre said "the right thing to do" was to not extend the restaurant's lease beyond the "six-month pilot period". Chick-fil-A said its donations were purely focused on youth and education. The family-owned company, founded in Atlanta in 1967, is one of the biggest fast-food chains in the USA and boasts about 2,400...

    SAN FRANCISCO, September 5, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – As the preliminary hearing for charges against pro-life investigators David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt continues, Twitter temporarily barred the pro-life Center for Medical Progress (CMP) from live-tweeting the proceedings – based on a misrepresentation of the tweets from Planned Parenthood’s attorneys, CMP claims. CMP has been locked in legal battles with Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation (NAF) since the summer of 2015, when their undercover videos revealed abortion industry insiders expressing interest in profiting off organs from aborted babies, which is illegal. The abortion groups accuse the pro-life investigators of breaking...

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Wednesday that her city has permanently banned U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement from accessing the Chicago Police Department’s databases ahead of looming ICE raids to detain undocumented immigrants. Chicago police “will not team up with ICE to detain any resident,” the mayor said after meeting with business leaders and immigration rights advocates at Lurie Children’s Hospital. “They’re not going to be facilitating or otherwise providing any assistance in any raids ― whether it’s traffic stops [or] additional support. … We have also cut off ICE from any access from any CPD databases and that will...
