    Sidwell Friends School, a Quaker-affiliated independent school known for enrolling top lawmakers' children—including the daughters of former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama—accepted a $5.2 million loan under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Congress's bailout fund for small businesses affected by the coronavirus crisis. The school, which brings in over $40 million in tuition annually, declined to give back the loan after Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin called on "private schools with significant endowments" to "return" PPP funds. In a letter to the community, the board of trustees cited its "fiduciary responsibilities" as well as "our Quaker values" in...
  • Trump admin urges US court not to block work permits to spouses of H1B visa-holders

    In a major development, the Trump administration has urged a federal district court not to block an Obama-era rule allowing certain categories of spouses of H-1B visa-holders to work in the US. In a submission before the US District Court, District Washington this week, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) argued that the American technology workers, who had challenged the 2015 ruling on giving work permits to H-4 visa-holders, have not been irreparably harmed by such work authorisation. An H-4 visa is issued by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to the immediate family members (spouse and children under...

    The key to seeing ALL things of this world is to see them from a regenerate biblical perspective (John 3:3-7, Col. 3:1-4)! The term swamp, or swamper or swamp creature is in the vernacular of the day referring to rooted and entrenched corruptors and corruption. There is one Swamp creature who is the father of all swampers and has been seeking in vain to build and maintain his godless swamp since his fall in Heaven's Eden of old (Gen. 3. Isa. 14:12-17, Ezek. 28:12-19, Matt. 25:John 8:44, Eph. 2:1-2, Rev. 20:2-3)! Saul Alinsky spoke of him in the dedication of...

    The good news is that you might get out of future jury duty, because when you are asked under oath about your own biases during a federal criminal case jury selection you would have to answer honestly by responding, “Your Honor, I don’t trust a damn thing anyone in the FBI says.” If the heirs of Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., were to go up on the stand and testify, the recent disgraceful revelations about how their bosses tried to frame LTG Mike Flynn mean you would be entirely correct to grant them the same credibility as the dude caught wearing a...

    Could Edward John Smith save the Titanic? We know from history that tragically he never could have. The ship was doomed and no optimistic appraisals nor remedies could have saved that doomed wounded ship from its final demise. Now, will Donald Trump be re-elected in November of 2020, and if so, will he be able to save an American social and cultural wasteland with half of this nation at war with him 24/7! Those who fully oppose him, fully embrace national godlessness and lawlessness, its horrific social destructive forces and hardcore socialism and marxism (View this post's title image above)?...

    Federal Bureau of Investigations Director Christopher Wray fought to prevent exculpatory evidence from surfacing in the case of President Donald Trump’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, a source with direct knowledge of the situation tells Daily Caller. New court documents were filed in Flynn’s case Friday containing the aforementioned exculpatory evidence, commonly referred to as Brady Material. Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, announced the new filing on Twitter. She has repeatedly accused the FBI and Justice Department of hiding evidence in the case. “This afternoon, the government produced to Mr. Flynn stunning Brady evidence that proves Mr. Flynn’s allegations of...

    President Trump’s firing of John Rood, the top policy official at the Pentagon [Under Secretary of Defense for Policy], is a sign the agency is not immune from an effort to purge from influential positions across the administration “snakes” who do not support the president, according to four current and former officials. Rood had been on the chopping block for months, but his firing just last week amid a spate of other personnel changes shows that the president is finally ready to clean house at a department that has tried to distance itself from politics, they said. * * *...

    This was the week that President Trump really started to drain the swamp. It came when he yanked the nomination of Jessie Liu to a Treasury Department post. (Skip) Though Trump was most aggravated with Liu not clamping down on the outrageous sentencing recommendations of her staff in the Roger Stone case, there was a long list of other concerns that made it clear to the president the extent of ideological weaponization across the Justice Department. Let’s start with Roger Stone for now. Liu’s so-called “career prosecutors” devised a sentencing recommendation of nine years in prison for behavior that became...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump spent his first week post-impeachment asserting his dominance over the Department of Justice in a bid to exact revenge on his enemies and deliver rewards to his allies — the sudden, dramatic escalation of a long-running campaign to solidify his control over legal matters, and remove or sideline the remaining independent voices within his administration. With the impeachment behind him, Trump's advisers say there is little incentive for him to hold his fire. With few, if any, dissenting voices left in his orbit, aides and advisers have been cheering on his moves, saying he is...

    Former Gov. Christie Todd Whitman this weekend assailed her fellow Republicans in the Senate for blocking a call for more witnesses in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Whitman, a moderate Republican who served as governor of the Garden State from 1994 until 2001, said on Twitter it was “mind boggling” that the Senate would vote, nearly along party lines, to disallow witnesses from testifying in the proceedings. Trump was impeached by the House last month on charges that he abused power and obstructed Congress as he tried to pressure Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden, using military...

    WASHINGTON — A Senate vote to end President Donald Trump’s impeachment proceedings without calling witnesses should be considered “half a trial,” the president’s former chief of staff John Kelly said Friday. “In my view, they kind of leave themselves open to a lot of criticism,” Kelly said in an interview with NJ Advance Media in advance of his Feb. 12 appearance at Drew University’s Drew Forum speaker series at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown. “It seems it was half a trial,” Kelly said. Kelly said he believed former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s assertion that Trump withheld congressionally...

    Washington -- Dare we call it the Trump Revolution? We call the presidency of Ronald Reagan the Reagan Revolution. Well, consider what President Donald Trump has achieved in but three years. He has revived the economy with ample growth, historically low levels of unemployment and efficiencies in the economy thanks to the removal of unnecessary stultifying regulations. He promises more if reelected. He has assured international peace and stability. Becoming a prominent terrorist is no longer a smart career choice. Longevity can be problematic. And the president has assured a judicial system stocked with men and women who really believe...
  • Zero chance witnesses will be called.

    There is absolutely no way they will call witnesses. The Swamp is totally corrupt. It has become worse than ever. (Read Peter Schweitzer’s new book.) They see nothing wrong with enriching themselves and their families by selling their influence. The Senate, both Democrats and Republicans, is the most corrupt of all. They are unbelievably slick and sophisticated at it. All of the senators are doing, in some form, what Joe Biden did. Isn’t it revealing that *no* senator — even Lindsay Graham, Marsha Blackburn, Rand Paul, or Bernie Sanders — has said they think Biden did anything wrong? Likewise, they...

    A federal court has ruled Arizona Republicans’ ban on mail-in ballots is illegal and unconstitutional, calling it intentionally discriminatory toward people of color, who already face increased barriers to voting. The ruling is a major victory for the Democratic party, which filed the suit, and will likely make it easier for minorities to get their ballots counted in the largely red state.

    Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic frontrunner, accepted challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders’ apology late Monday over a blistering op-ed written by an unofficial campaign surrogate who blasted the former vice president as a weak candidate with a serious corruption problem. Zephyr Teachout, a Fordham Law professor, wrote the column for the Guardian that could be used as a roadmap for President Trump's re-election team in the general election. She described a candidate happy to be called "Middle-Class Joe," but whose political career is a bit murkier. She wrote he has a long history of supporting "finance over working-class Americans." Teachout, who...
