    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | May 30, 2016 | David Horowitz
    Over the Memorial Day Weekend, Bill Kristol doubled down on his betrayal of this country with a pair of tweets: “Just a heads up over this holiday weekend: There will be an independent candidate — an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance,” Kristol tweeted. He also said, “Those accused of betraying GOP by opposing Trump can take heart from P. Henry 251 years ago today: ‘If this be treason, make the most of it!’” This fatuous invocation of an American patriot to justify the betrayal typifies the arrogant disregard for political realities shared by all those...
  • Feds Creating Muslim Ghetto In Rand Paul's Backyard -Use Memorial Day To Import More Muslim Refugees

    The Feds have been importing Muslim migrants for years and creating insta-ghettos in small towns across the country. They systematically conceal their plans from locals who often wake up to find their towns have undergone drastic change. Such is the case in Senator Rand Paul's hometown of Bowling Green, Kentucky. This small city of 70,000 had no Muslims 15 years ago and now has 7,000 recent immigrants - 10% of the population...

    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan finds himself in the middle of yet another Republican civil war as the battle over LGBT rights has come to Congress, threatening to divide an already fractured GOP. It is a fight the speaker does not want to have — especially in a competitive election year in which presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s candidacy is already tearing the party apart.

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said he’s used to “outside agitators,” in reference to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s endorsement of his primary challenger in Wisconsin’s 1st District, Paul Nehlen. “I’m used to that sort of thing,” Ryan responded when asked about the possibility of Palin campaigning in his district, during an interview on Politico’s Off Message podcast. “Outside agitators are going to do what they’re going to do.” “They know I’m sincere,” Ryan said of his constituents. Palin endorsed Nehlen, Ryan’s primary challenger, earlier this month after Ryan refused to endorse presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

In an interview with CBS News' "Face the Nation," Priebus — days after a closed-door sit-down with the GOP presumptive presidential nominee — warns against a third-party attempt at "blowing everything up." "It's a suicide mission because you're not only changing and throwing out eight years of the White House" but also jeopardizing the course of the Supreme Court, he replied.

The Ohio Republican, speaking with reporters at a warehouse in Columbus, said North Carolina's new limits on protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are "a bad law." "You need to not discriminate against people and be sure that we are respecting religious liberties," Portman said. "That can be done, and I do not believe that the North Carolina law accomplishes that."...

Trump’s ascent has caused within the Republican Party — hoping to gain the support of Republican voters and influential party leaders, including former elected officials and retired generals disillusioned by their party’s standard-bearer.

    Anti-Donald Trump Republicans are starting to consider whether their opposition to a Trump presidency is so strong that they would be prepared to fight him in the general election — even if that means helping put an avowed enemy, Hillary Clinton, in the Oval Office. One strategy under discussion is to focus on helping down-ballot GOP candidates while sitting out the presidential race under the belief that Trump will lose to Clinton no matter what. A more drastic and difficult option: rallying support for a third-party candidate who could uphold traditional Republican positions but would almost certainly steal votes from...

The proposal, which will top the agenda during a meeting of the Rules panel at the RNC’s annual spring meeting in Hollywood Beach, Fla., would fundamentally alter how the convention is conducted, further empowering the delegates to determine the course of the proceedings. It amounts to not just a changing of the rules but of the rulebook itself, with far-reaching implications, potentially impacting whether party...

    As of late...Ryan's Fake Unity Message with comments galore, Reuter's Poll publishing 33% of Trump supporters will drop GOP, strange and random phone calls to Tea Party-types coming from RNC. All a ruse to data mine what their margins are.......they really are gonna go for it. Surmising the same thing is happening on the Dem side, they will keep their alliance with DEMe, even if it means losing House and Senate. Too much money at stake for the Uni-Party. If we can't succeed, the Middle Class is truly done.

    In the latest shock for the GOP, which in recent weeks some have speculated is willing to scuttle the entire republican presidential campaign if it means not having Trump as the candidate, according to a just released Reuters poll, one third of Republican voters who support Donald Trump could turn their backs on their party in November's presidential election if he is denied the nomination in a contested convention. Or, as The Hill puts it, "blocking Donald Trump from the Republican presidential nomination with a contested convention would spell disaster for the GOP" because instead Trump supporters would vote Democrat,...
  • 7 FAM 1130 ACQUISITION OF U.S. CITIZENSHIP BY BIRTH ABROAD TO U.S. CITIZEN PARENT (Scrubbing of 7

    Today I discovered that the reason I could not find a section of the Nationalization Statues is because the section had been scrubbed. This is not an accident. The section removed had confirmed that the interpretation of the State Department based on the Constitution and relevant case law was that Naturalization did not convey natural born status for Constitutional purposes. The Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM) and associated Handbooks (FAHs) are a single, comprehensive, and authoritative source for the Department's organization structures, policies, and procedures that govern the operations of the State Department, the Foreign Service and, when applicable, other federal...

    Moments after announcing that Ted Cruz had swept all 34 delegate slots at the Colorado GOP convention Saturday, the state party tweeted: "We did it. #NeverTrump." Within minutes, the tweet had been deleted. Steve House, the Colorado GOP chairman, insisted his staff had nothing to do with the tweet and is now investigating. "There's no way we tweeted that," House said, although he acknowledged that the state party was responsible for deleting it. The last tweet was the result of unauthorized access to our account and in no way represents the opinion of the party. We are investigating. — The...

    DONALD J. TRUMP’S VISION for the future of our nation is as deeply disturbing as it is profoundly un-American. It is easy to find historical antecedents. The rise of demagogic strongmen is an all too common phenomenon on our small planet. And what marks each of those dark episodes is a failure to fathom where a leader’s vision leads, to carry rhetoric to its logical conclusion. The satirical front page of this section attempts to do just that, to envision what America looks like with Trump in the White House. It is an exercise in taking a man at his...
