    Spirits were high inside the House chamber on Thursday, November 16, when, in the early afternoon, the gavel fell and a measure to rewrite the American tax code passed on a partisan tally of 227 to 205. As the deciding votes were cast—recorded in green on the black digital scoreboard suspended above the floor—the speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, threw his head back and slammed his hands together. Soon he was engulfed in a sea of dark suits, every Republican lawmaker wanting to slap him on the shoulder and be a part of his moment. Ryan was the man...
  • Spread the swamp? Trump administration wants to move government offices out of Washington

    Amid the talk of draining swamps, restoring political might to blue-collar America and turning off the spigot of taxpayer cash that showers Washington, a familiar battle cry is ricocheting through this city: Move the bureaucrats out. It has the ring of a Trumpian fantasy. Dislodge arms of the federal government from Washington and reattach them in faraway places, spreading the wealth generated by these well-paid agency workforces and forcing senior bureaucrats to face the people they affect.

    In the last 12 months, U.S.-backed combat operations drove ISIS from its last bits of territory. America withdrew from the Paris agreement on climate change, UNESCO, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The House and Senate have come within sight of overhauling the tax code and dismantling Obamacare. Most recently, Donald Trump -- in a spectacular departure from his predecessor's Middle Eastern diplomacy -- has moved the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. It is as if a hurricane has swept through Washington. Each fallen pillar represents a very deliberate reversal of the status quo ante policies of Barack Obama. The entire...

    As we get ever closer to the one year anniversary of President Trump’s unexpected (and refreshing) rise to power, several of his campaign promises have come into sharper relief than others. Some, the President obviously isn’t interested in compromising on, such as immigration enforcement, nominating conservative judges, or a general refusal to apologize for cultural conservatism and America’s “deplorables.” Others, the President has treated more like opening offers in an ongoing negotiation, such as his stances on trade with China, or war with Afghanistan. And still others, the President has shown every willingness to execute but has been blocked...

    WASHINGTON — Representative John Conyers Jr., who faces allegations that he sexually harassed former employees, announced Tuesday that he will leave Congress immediately, and he endorsed his son, John Conyers III, to replace him. Mr. Conyers, the longest-serving current member of the House and the longest-serving African-American in history, called into a local radio show on Tuesday to break the news. “I am retiring today,” Mr. Conyers said from a hospital in Michigan. “I am in the process of putting together my retirement plans. I will have more on that soon.” He continued to deny that he has harassed any...

    On December 3, President Trump issued an interesting tweet… not terribly unusual for him, as that’s how he communicates with the American people. Just as Ronald Reagan was famous for “going over the heads of the press and speaking directly to the people,” Donald Trump uses today’s technology to accomplish the same end. As a result, he is better able to command the political narrative than most Republican presidents (Democrats don’t need to find such methods, since the press has long acted as Democrat presidents’ house organ). In this particular tweet, President Trump said that the FBI’s “reputation is in...
  • Monica Crowley on Why The Swamp Hates Donald Trump

    Because finally, finally this country has elected someone not of, by, and for the swamp, someone who owes them nothing and does not fear them: Donald J. Trump. I freaking love Donald Trump. The reason the swamp hates him, of course, is manifold. He is proven to be a potent crusher of political correctness and polite society, the way things are supposed to be said, i.e. not on Twitter, and a crusher of that elite vanguard also known as the swamp. He came in and he promised to smash their corrupt existing order, to overturn the money changers' tables. Right?...

    Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said Trump had "been one of the best presidents" he served under. Hatch said, "I'm not aware of it. I don't pay much attention to his tweets. I'll say this for you. He's been one of the best presidents I've served under. And the reasoning is, he's not afraid to make decisions. He's not afraid to take on the — the big mouths around here."

    Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), who is embroiled in a sexual misconduct scandal, is hospitalized in his home state due to stress, according to two local reports on Thursday. "I just spoke with Monica Conyers on the phone and we want you to know that the congressman is resting comfortably in an area hospital. He's doing OK, as well as he can be expected for a gentleman that's approaching 90 years of age," Sam Riddle, a Conyers consultant, told WDIV TV. "The congressman's health is not what it should be and lot of that is directly attributable to this media assault."

    GOP Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby said on Monday that he did not vote for Republican nominee Roy Moore in the state's Senate special election. "No, no, no, I voted absentee. I didn't vote for him. I voted for a distinguished Republican write-in," Shelby told reporters when asked if he would vote for Moore, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.

    Donald Trump's attacks on broadcaster CNN are an "an outrageous assault" on freedom of speech, according to former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director Michael Hayden. “If this is who we are or who we are becoming, I have wasted 40 years of my life,” the former spy chief, who now works as a national security analyst for the broadcaster, said in a Twitter post. General Hayden, who is also a former director of the National Surveillance Agency (NSA), added: "Until now it was not possible for me to conceive of an American President capable of such an outrageous assault on...

    One week after Hurricane Katrina made landfall in August 2005, President George W. Bush consulted with his team of crisis advisers and inundated the Gulf Coast with cheap, illegal alien labor. Bush’s August decision to lift the Davis-Bacon wage law made it very easy for contractors to hire cheap labor. Mike Chertoff, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), quickly suspended sanctions on the employers who did hire illegal aliens. The result was another flood – this time not of water, but of illegal aliens, 30,000 of which came to the Gulf Coast to take cleanup and blue-collar...

    Our democracies in the Western half of Europe have been subverted. Their goal is no longer to do what the people want. On the contrary, our political elites often do exactly the opposite. Our parliaments promote open-door policies that the majority of the people reject. Our governments sell out sovereignty to the EU against the will of the people. Our rulers welcome ever more Islam, although the majority of the people oppose it. Our democracies have become fake democracies. They are multi-party dictatorships, ruled by groups of establishment parties. They wheel and deal, often selling away the principles for which...

    This video is captivating, long but worth it. Note my time is limited and had no intention to listen to more than just a few minutes, but this reveals so many confirmations and answers to what's going down and why Trump is not always able to act unilaterally. My valuable time was spent listening to the whole thing. Note that Thomas Paine, not his true name obviously, is former NYPD, Intel Community member, now covert investigator and journalist for True Pundit. He's one of the good guys.

    Trump is good at "unmasking" frauds. These frauds are commonly known to be the RINO politicians, the far-left Democrats, and the crazed media. Putin can now be included. This is a guy who pretends to support national sovereignty and conservative values. Yet Trump's very existence has provoked Putin into aggressively interfering in America's most sensitive domestic matters, all while coming in strong on the Democrats' side. Putin was behind a massive flow of money to Hillary Clinton – so much money, in fact, that he has altered the course of American politics forever. Beyond that, the Kremlin's disinformation is now...

    Justice Neil Gorsuch gave the most significant public address of his tenure on the nation’s highest court Thursday when he addressed the Federalist Society’s annual dinner, recently named in honor of the last man to hold his seat: Antonin Scalia. The newest Supreme Court justice took square aim at one of this year’s Federalist Society Convention’s main themes: the “administrative state,” the unelected mass of executive agency staff that actually creates most of the rules and regulations by which Americans live. Resistance of the administrative state’s growth and overreach is a driving force in the emergence of populist-nationalism and the...

    "Lieutenant, take your men and secure the swamp." Monday May 1st, 2006 How often we hear folks say things like: "Why did God allow this to happen?" or "Where was God while this was going on?". God Himself has given us an answer to those questions and the millions more like them, His answer is: Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to...

    American Majority founder Ned Ryun talked about Roy Moore and the Alabama Senate race with Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steve Bannon and SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Friday’s Breitbart News Daily, broadcast live from the Restoration Weekend event. Bannon asked Ryun about celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred’s involvement in the Roy Moore case, representing a woman who accuses Moore of assaulting her in 1977 when she was 16 years old. Ryan said Allred is “basically a human vulture when you look back at some of the things she’s been involved in.”
