    “We’ll be showing that to you real soon, OK?…you’ll be seeing very soon what comes out and then you can ask the question in a different way.” That was the answer President Donald Trump gave on Sunday to a reporter who asked what evidence has has that Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman – who is very likely the second fake whistleblower recruited by Adam Schiff – is a Never Trumper. The President spoke to the press as he disembarked Marine 1 upon his return from New York City. The President also chastised the corrupt news media for its ongoing refusal to...

    Has Hillary Clinton completely lost it? Or is her tendency to say incalculably stupid things part of a larger political strategy that the former first lady is reluctant to share or perhaps even acknowledge? President Trump recently asked that same question and though it seems an increasingly relevant query: are we missing something? The increasingly bizarre public pronouncements from Clinton might just be another manifestation of her endless craving for attention and publicitysuch is the simplicity of her egotism. In her quest to salvage some kind of positive legacy, Hillary continues to ceaselessly promote her public profile and has, in...

Last night the United States brought the worlds number one terrorist leader to justice, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead, Trump said in an address on Sunday.

    Former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton claimed Tuesday that the Russians are propping up U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii for a third-party presidential run in 2020. Im not making any predictions, but I think theyve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate, Clinton said of Russias involvement in the next presidential election on former Obama White House advisor David Plouffes podcast. Shes the favorite of the Russians. During the interview, Clinton also branded former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein...

    Hillary Clinton said that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Moscow to run as a third-party spoiler candidate in 2020 to help President Trump win reelection. The former secretary of state pushed the theory on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe, President Barack Obamas campaign manager in 2008. Plouffe and Clinton discussed hurdles the Democratic nominee would face and compared the 2020 race to Clintons loss to Trump in 2016. Plouffe asked Clinton about the part third-party candidates, such as Jill Stein of the Green Party, played in 2016, allowing Trump to secure key states. "They are...

    MOSCOW, Oct 17 (Reuters) - The Kremlin on Thursday questioned the tone of a letter sent by U.S. President Donald Trump to his Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan, saying it was highly unusual for correspondence between heads of state. The White House on Wednesday released the Oct. 9 letter, in which Trump urged Erdogan to halt Turkey's cross-border offensive into northeast Syria, saying "Don't be a tough guy" and "Don't be a fool!"

    February 1, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - If we are to believe the Hillary Clinton campaign line, the main attribute which qualifies her above all others is that, "She is ready to lead on day one." She derives this alleged standing from what can only be called political osmosis, having been the wife of Bill Clinton, serving as his "co-president." This echoes a theme which Bill stated often during the 1992 presidential campaign, suggesting that a vote for him was a bargain because the lucky voter would get "two for the price of one," thus providing a...

    A pair of Russians pretending to be the defense minister of Turkey tricked Sen. Lindsey Graham into two calls where he discussed President Donald Trump and US policy on Turkey, according to reports released Thursday. The call was actually from Alexey Stolyarov and Vladimir Kuznetsov, who made a name for themselves making prank calls to high profile Americans and Europeans according to Politico, which shared recordings of the calls. The pair go by nicknames Lexus and Vovan, and some people suspect they could have ties to the Kremlin and Russian intelligence services, Politico reports. Graham spokesman Kevin Bishop confirmed the...

    You will hear about the Trump associates, you will hear about the famous, but you wont hear much about two of the largest beneficiaries from Russian State linked investment in the Paradise Papers. Could this be because between the two of them they control the entire market of social media? When the flood of documents first came out in 2013, it was, and is the second largest document dump in history. People have spent years poring over the details, some of which came to light today. It turns out that both Facebook and Twitter received hundreds of millions of dollars...

    MOSCOW - As many as 35 Russian mercenaries are reported to have been killed in Libya while they were fighting for Khalifa Haftar, the military general most associated with the rule of the late leader Muammar Gaddafi, who launched an offensive earlier this year on the Libyan capital of Tripoli, home to the countrys internationally-recognized government, according to a Russian media. The mercenaries are thought to work for the Wagner Group, a military contractor run by Yevgeny Prigozhin, a businessman nicknamed Putins Chef because he holds lucrative Kremlin catering contracts.

    Trumps communications with foreign leader are part of whistleblower complaint that spurred standoff between spy chief and Congress, former officials say The whistleblower complaint that has triggered a tense showdown between the U.S. intelligence community and Congress involves President Trumps communications with a foreign leader, according to two former U.S. officials familiar with the matter. Trumps interaction with the foreign leader included a promise that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community, said the former officials, speaking on...

    The general leading the force to free the captive enemy from the U.S. detention center in Guantanamo Bay, and inflict a humiliating defeat on the United States is so-called civil rights and Constitutional attorney Michael Ratner. It was Ratner who led the way in recruiting elite lawyers to defend the enemy combatants being interrogated at Gitmo. But Ratner is a long-time leader of two pro-Communist and anti-American organizations who have for decades lent aid and comfort to America's enemies in the Cold War and beyond. Michael Ratner began his legal career in the late 1960s at the National Lawyers Guild,...

    For the liberal media, conspiracy theories are fine so long as theyre the stuff of liberal fairy tales. MSNBCs Hardball illustrated that point on Tuesday night as MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler wildly asserted that, since Donald Trump was President and Bill Barr was Attorney General, the two have, in some ways...facilitated [Jeffrey] Epstein's suicide. Host Chris Matthews certainly wasnt expecting that when, after introducing Butler, he complained about Trumps chutzpah to just say to throw out Bill Clinton and try to trash his name into this mess regarding Clintons closeness with Epstein. Butler asserted that Donald Trump is...
