    A former Democrat and current Trump supporter unloaded on Democrats. Jeffrey Peterson says the reason the Democrats will never support the border wall – the reason is that they are being paid off by the Mexican cartels. Jeffrey Peterson states in his profile on Twitter that he is a former Democrat who ‘walked away’. He now is a Trump supporter! He claims that the Democrats will never give in on a wall due to the Democrats being funded by the Mexican mafia. He says he has connections with Arizona politics and says Mexico is the main reason the wall is...

    DENVER (CBS4) – Retired astronaut Mark Kelly and his wife, former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords are helping launch a new gun control group in Colorado. This one is made up of gun owners. The effort comes as gun sales are down, and the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to take up a gun rights case for the first time in nine years. Colorado Gun Owners for Safety is made up of sport shooters, gun collectors and hunters like Mike Heyka. “We’re not gun grabbers nor do we believe in arming everyone with guns is the answer. We are the moderate middle.”...

    One of the reasons identify theft is considered by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration to be the crime of the century is because of the IRS. The Internal Revenue Service makes growing demands for information about people’s businesses and private lives every day. There is no such thing as personal privacy these days. That the IRS sends citizens a so-called “Privacy Act Notice” in all its mailings is a farce. The IRS lays claim to your data without court authority more so than any other government agency. And to make matters worse, they share the data with any...

    Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and minority leader Chuck Schumer have agreed to a deal that could end the partial government shutdown, which entered its 32nd day Tuesday. Under the deal, the Senate will vote Thursday on two bills intended to end the shutdown. One bill includes President Trump’s request for $5.7 billion to construct a wall at the southern border, and one would fund the government entities affected by the shutdown through February 8, kicking the fight down the road until then. “People are saying isn’t there a way out of this mess, isn’t there a way to relieve...

    The government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip ErdoÄŸan rushed a financial agreement between Turkey and Qatar through Parliament for approval ahead of his decision to turn over a $20 billion tank and pallet factory to a company run jointly by his associates and the Qatari army. The deal, the avoidance of double taxation agreement, came just in the nick of time before the ErdoÄŸan government presented a multibillion-dollar national tank factory on a silver platter to Turkish-Qatari armored vehicle manufacturer BMC, a company run by Ethem Sancak, a member of the MKYK executive body of the ruling Justice and Development...

    The daily media smearing of Donald Trump and his followers is one thing, but the readiness not just of the media but of self-righteous types from all walks of life to demonize a bunch of Kentucky high-school kids on the basis of a couple of news reports was truly breathtaking. Presumably everyone knows the story by now. Last Friday, after attending the March for Life in Washington, D.C., several boys from Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky, were waiting outside the Lincoln Memorial for their bus home when something happened. The early reports accused the boys, some of...
  • Twitter Allows ‘Verified’ Calls for Violence Against Conservative High School Kids

    01/22/2019 1:07:33 PM PST · by detective · 21 replies
    Twitter has spent years assuring the public that it will crack down on trolling, harassment, and violent threats. It’s also pledged to tackle “misinformation” and “unhealthy conversation,” using these loaded terms as excuses to ban a wide range of anti-progressive dissidents from the platform. But when innocent conservative high school kids are flooded with violent threats, targeted harassment and doxing on the basis of media-promoted misinformation, Jack Dorsey and his staff seem to do nothing — it even briefly promoted the smears. Over the past 48 hours, an angry mob of Twitter users — many of them with blue checkmarks...

    A prominent immigrant-rights activist launched a drive Tuesday to rewrite the American Pledge of Allegiance, saying as it stands now it’s a symbol of “rooted in nativism and white supremacy.” Cesar Vargas, a “Dreamer” who came to the country illegally with his mother and now runs the Dream Action Coalition, says the pledge speaks to fear, while he wants to see a version imbued with “optimism.” “The upgraded version should read: “I pledge allegiance and love to our indigenous and immigrant heritage, rooted in the United States of America, to our civil rights for which we strive, one voice, one...

Pelosi’s trip to Italy and Ukraine from July 30 to Aug. 6, 2015, cost the Air Force $184,587.81, according to documents released Saturday under a 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by...

    A federal officer arrested a “human smuggler” following a traffic stop in Summit County over the weekend. The task force officer with Homeland Security pulled over the vehicle after he spotted the driver speeding and driving erratically on eastbound I-80 after 9 p.m. A probable cause statement filed in a Summit County court indicates that during Saturday night’s stop, the officer noticed eight male passengers who “looked like they were attempting to hide.” When asked for identification, the driver provided the officer with a fake ID. But, after checking a federal criminal database, it revealed the driver as 33-year-old Rolando...

    The unidentified physicians were responsible for the woman’s care, Hacienda HealthCare said in a statement One doctor was suspended and another resigned from a long-term care facility in Arizona after a woman in a vegetative state gave birth there last month, the facility said Monday. The unidentified physicians were responsible for the woman’s care, Hacienda HealthCare said in a brief statement reported by NBC News. The company’s former CEO, Bill Timmons, resigned on Jan. 7, with its board of directors saying it would “accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation.” The woman, 29, and a...

    LaToya Cantrell‘s gun buyback turned out to be a bust. Previously unmentioned, this painfully liberal effort only had $100,000 total, so only money for 200 people. Small, important details such as this had not been shared. The Hayride jumped on the fact Cantrell originally said $500 per gun. Then it was modified to $500 max per resident no matter if they turned in one or five guns. As to how it worked, they gave vouchers for guns. The buyback was advertised as cash although one person said he received a $500 card for Dollar General. It’s still unclear if anyone...

    Police in Nevada announced on Sunday that a suspect in four mid-January homicides had been taken into custody. Nineteen-year-old Wilbur Ernesto Martinez-Guzman was arrested in Carson City last Saturday on an immigration charge. Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam said on Sunday that authorities “feel confident” they have “evidence that will link him to all four homicides.” Martinez-Guzman has been charged with burglary, possession of stolen property, and obtaining money by false pretenses. He remains on an immigration hold, according to police. The suspect was arrested after authorities determined he “was likely in the United States illegally and was detainable,” Carson...
