New social network Gab.ai preaches freedom of expression for internet users [pro-Trump]
Post Date: 2018-04-01 14:13:32 by Tooconservative
If the First Amendment is your thing, theres a new space on the internet just for you. Gab.ai, which only launched under a month ago, has caught the attention of thousands of right-leaning users, with 12,000 registered and 42,000 waitlisted for the site, which promises almost total freedom of speech to its users. Founded by Andrew Torba, an open Trump supporter, the site follows the coattails of Facebook and Twitters recent battles with user censorship, including perhaps most notably, Twitters banishment of controversial conservative Internet personality Milo Yiannopoulos for his harassment campaign against actor Leslie Jones. Torba sees the alternative to sites like ...
Rand Paul, king of Senate drama, is at it again
Post Date: 2018-03-22 17:58:53 by Gatlin
The Kentucky senator has yet to decide whether to really get on fellow senators nerves by delaying a massive spending bill. Rand Paul is keeping everyone in suspense yet again. The junior senator from Kentucky is refusing to rule out forcing another brief government shutdown over his protests of the $1.3 trillion spending bill, which he has called budget-busting and a return to Obama spending and trillion-dollar deficits. Fellow senators are trying desperately to persuade him to let the Senate vote on the spending bill Thursday and avoid unnecessarily keeping them in town on Friday and into the weekend. Paul was noncommittal on Thursday as he walked into a ...
Wisconsin GOP Senator Scott Fitzgerald Protects Perverts
Post Date: 2018-03-21 09:09:46 by Willie Green
WISCONSIN - Many people are appalled that Wisconsin Senate president Scott Fitzgerald denied the state senate a vote on a bill that would upgrade animal sexual abuse from a misdemeanor to a felony."It's a shame," Joe Lambert, a horse owner in Denmark, said. Senator Fitzgerald said he didn't want to vote on the bill because he didn't want the media to bring attention to it once the session ended."The senator didn't want this to happen he was afraid the press was going to talk about sexual abuse to animals," Joe Lambert said. "I think it's something that needs to be discussed."The bill was proposed by Representative Andre Jacque ...
Arizona's Flake, in New Hampshire, mulls 2020 challenge to Trump

Retiring U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake, an inveterate critic of President Donald Trump, charged in a Thursday speech to the National Press Club that his fellow Republicans might not deserve to lead because of their blind loyalty to the president.The Arizonan also said he could wage a 2020 GOP primary challenge against Trump. "It's not in my plan to run for president, but I am not ruling it out. Somebody needs to stand up for traditional Republicanism," Flake said. "Somebody needs to raise that, for nothing else than to give people hope that that decent party will be back. We'll get through this." "It's not in my plan to run for president, but I ...
Rick Saccone’s Pennsylvania blunder was very expensive for Republicans
Post Date: 2018-03-14 15:22:35 by Willie Green
Republican groups essentially lit more than $7 million on fire in Pennsylvania. In a race thats still undecided, GOP candidate Rick Saccone fell short in the Pennsylvania House special election, in a district that President Donald Trump won by 20 points.Saccone, a state legislator who called himself Trump before Trump was Trump, is behind Democrat Conor Lamb, a 33-year-old attorney and former Marine, in a special election to replace former Republican Rep. Tim Murphy, who resigned last year after reports revealed he had asked a woman he was having an affair with to have an abortion. Lamb has declared victory, but Saccone has yet to concede.Regardless of outcome, after an ...

Trump, Slayer of Pushers

If drug dealers have blood on their hands, so do drug warriors.The president wants to kill drug dealers, which he thinks would be a legal, moral, and effective way to prevent opioid-related deaths. He is wrong on all three counts. "Some countries have a very, very tough penaltythe ultimate penaltyand by the way, they have much less of a drug problem than we do," Donald Trump said during a White House summit on opioid abuse last Thursday. The remark was consistent with reports of private conversations in which Trump has said drug dealers deserve the death penalty. Federal law already authorizes execution for certain drug traffickers. Offenders subject to "the ...
Trump the 'Big Second Amendment Person' Becomes 'Trump the Gun Grabber'
Post Date: 2018-03-02 05:43:12 by Deckard
Trump's embrace of gun control is consistent with his views before he ran for president.Donald Trump's embrace of gun control during a meeting with members of Congress yesterday was startling to anyone who took seriously his pose as a staunch defender of the Second Amendment during his presidential campaign. But it looks more like a reversion to his actual opinions if you take a longer view. Yesterday Trump assured legislators that he will soon impose an administrative ban on bump stocks and said he supported legislation aimed at encouraging the sharing of information with the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), which is used to clear people who buy ...
The GOP Is Serious About Impeaching P.A. Judges for Reversing Their Gerrymander
Post Date: 2018-02-22 21:05:54 by Gatlin
When a Pennsylvania Republican legislator responded to the invalidation by his states Supreme Court of the congressional map he and his colleagues had fashioned by introducing articles of impeachment of the five justices involved, nobody was terribly surprised, even though Cris Dushs argument that the court was defying the sovereignty of God was a bit exotic. And when Republican U.S. representative Ryan Costello joined the impeachment parade, that, too was predictable: The new congressional map made his relatively safe district highly competitive. Of course hed respond to this existential threat to his career with every weapon imaginable. But now the impeachment talk ...
Trump's loyalty to the NRA diminishes hopes for stronger gun control
Post Date: 2018-02-22 20:54:07 by Gatlin
When it comes to new gun restrictions in 21st century America, the smart bet is: not happening. President Donald Trump on Thursday dangled the possibility of change. He reserved his greatest enthusiasm for supplying selected teachers with guns in hopes they could stop school shootings faster than police. But Trump also tweeted that he'll be "strongly pushing" Congress for tougher gun purchase background checks and a higher legal age for buying rifles. Yet no one should count on the president facing down the National Rifle Association, which opposes the latter two steps. Throughout his tumultuous administration, Trump has consistently demonstrated unwillingness to ...
Ted Cruz embraces Trump ahead of re-election
Post Date: 2018-02-22 20:47:48 by Gatlin
Washington (CNN)Up for a second Senate term in Texas this year, "Lyin' Ted" Cruz, as President Donald Trump nicknamed him, is suddenly Trump's biggest fan. Faced with a potentially tough re-election battle against Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke, Cruz has used recent public appearances -- including a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday -- to embrace Trump, stake out hard-line positions in debates over gun control and immigration, and antagonize Democrats. On Thursday, he even invoked "The Simpsons." "The Democrats are the party of Lisa Simpson," Cruz said of the know-it-all character. "And Republicans are ...
Trump says he's thinking about pulling ICE from California
Post Date: 2018-02-22 20:38:11 by Gatlin
Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump declared on Thursday he was considering withdrawing Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents from California as punishment for what he claimed was a "lousy management job" in patrolling illegal immigration. "You know what, I'm thinking about doing it," Trump said at a roundtable with state and local officials to address ideas to stop gun violence in the wake of the Parkland school massacre. His comments came after he decried the state of law enforcement in the Golden State. "We're getting no help from the state of California. Frankly, if I pulled our people from California, you would have a crime nest like ...

Why Did it Have to be ... Guns?
Post Date: 2018-02-19 22:27:06 by hondo68
Over the past 30 years, I've been paid to write almost two million words, every one of which, sooner or later, came back to the issue of guns and gun-ownership. Naturally, I've thought about the issue a lot, and it has always determined the way I vote. People accuse me of being a single-issue writer, a single- issue thinker, and a single- issue voter, but it isn't true. What I've chosen, in a world where there's never enough time and energy, is to focus on the one political issue which most clearly and unmistakably demonstrates what any politician -- or political philosophy -- is made of, right down to the creamy liquid center. Make no mistake: all politicians -- even ...
How A Plea Reversal From Michael Flynn Could Uncover More Federal Corruption
Post Date: 2018-02-19 21:24:41 by Gatlin
On Friday, Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an order in United States v. Flynn that, while widely unnoticed, reveals something fascinating: A motion by Michael Flynn to withdraw his guilty plea based on government misconduct is likely in the works. Just a week ago, and thus before Sullivan quietly directed Special Counsel Robert Muellers team to provide Flynns attorneys any exculpatory evidence, Washington Examiner columnist Byron York detailed the oddities of Flynns case. The next day, former assistant U.S. attorney and National Review contributing editor Andrew McCarthy connected more of the questionable dots. York added even more details a couple of days later. ...
Ros-Lehtinen: GOP Must Attract Millennials, Women and Minorities

Minorities that have always been traditionally a group that we should really be going after, I don't see that we really have a recruiting program that's active to get minorities involved in our party, she continued. Minorities aren't stupid. Why vote for a knock-off when you can elect the real deal? Meanwhile the Uniparty just keeps chugging along. Repukes thinking if they only offer more entitlement programs than the Dems the minorities will switch parties. Disgusting. Nothing short of deportation of all illegals. ending of DACA and ending of anchor-baby status and reeducation programs for those who are legally immigrated will change any of this. As long as the ...
House Freedom Caucus Is On the Warpath Again
Post Date: 2018-02-16 18:19:27 by Gatlin
Members of the House Freedom Caucus are at it again. As the Huffington Post's Matt Fuller reports, this time they're more or less threatening a coup against Speaker Paul Ryan unless he sticks to their script on immigration: They want a vote on the restrictionist bill offered by Bob Goodlatte, and they certainly don't want votes on any compromise measure that might emerge from the Senate. They're already upset with Ryan because of the recently passed agreement on spending for the remainder of the fiscal year, along with raising the debt limit and various other measures. The truth, however, is that the conservative radicals are the ones responsible for that bill. Democrats ...
With McCain’s retreat, some turn to Romney to carry his torch
Post Date: 2018-02-16 05:21:21 by Gatlin
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), right, appears with Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, in January 2012. In more ways than one, followers of traditional Republican orthodoxy are facing an emotional inflection point this week. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), at home battling an aggressive form of brain cancer, will not attend this weekends Munich Security Conference, an annual gathering of foreign policy leaders from NATO nations that has become a central clearinghouse for global security matters and a celebration of Western values and democratic institutions. McCain, an avatar of all of the above, has been a regular attendee for decades. Last year, less than a month after ...
Drama on the House floor from the Freedom Caucus
Post Date: 2018-02-14 23:19:53 by Gatlin
DRAMA -- House conservatives almost topple tax vote, by Bernie Becker, Sarah Ferris, and Colin Wilhelm: House conservatives threatened to derail a key tax vote on Monday in an attempt to win more influence over the GOPs spending strategy, just four days before the deadline to fund the government. In a dramatic political stunt, more than a dozen members of the House Freedom Caucus withheld their support for a crucial procedural vote on the GOPs tax bill, threatening an embarrassing blow to GOP leadership. The conservatives eventually relented, approving what had been thought to be a formality a motion to appoint negotiators to hammer out a final ...
Meet the most powerful man in the House

How Rep. Mark Meadows came to control the Republican agendas future. On a July afternoon in the Capitol Building, in the course of giving his play-by-play of the Senates health care debate, Mark Meadows showed me the call log on his iPhone. The first name was Steve Bannon, followed by Reince Priebus both of whom would resign from the White House in the coming weeks but who were, at the time, top aides to President Trump. Then, in all caps, came a code name that was hard to miss: VIP POTUS. Meadows tried to play off the names as unusual, a flurry of high-profile calls all flowing from the Senates failed health care push. But in the scheme of Washington today, ...
House Conservatives [Freedom Caucus] Revolt Over Immigration
Post Date: 2018-02-14 22:08:12 by Gatlin
Two leaders of the House Freedom Caucus warn they wont support a bad immigration bill. As is traditional during Infrastructure Week, nobody on Capitol Hill is talking about infrastructure. Instead, lawmakers are zeroing in on immigration and the young undocumented immigrants whose protection from deportation expires in March. But while all eyes are on the Senates not-so-freewheeling debate on those issues, the real action is perhaps in the lower chamber. There, House Republicans are grappling with their own path forward on immigrationand on Wednesday morning, internecine tensions boiled over. Representative Mark Meadows, chairman of the House Freedom ...
Freedom Caucus Fires Fresh Warning Shots to Ryan on Immigration ‘Consequences’
Post Date: 2018-02-14 22:01:24 by Gatlin
House Freedom Caucus leaders fired off fresh warning shots Wednesday to Speaker Paul D. Ryan that there will be repercussions if he moves an immigration measure that runs contrary to what President Donald Trump and conservative Republicans campaigned on in 2016. It is the defining moment for this speaker, HFC Chairman Mark Meadows said. If he gets it wrong, it will have consequences for him, but it will also have consequences for the rest of the party. Meadows did not elaborate on what those consequences would be, but some of his caucus members have been clear for months that Ryan striking a bad deal on immigration would potentially be a deathly blow to his ...
Rand Paul tried to do his job, and got the wrath of the Senate in exchange
Post Date: 2018-02-14 21:53:02 by Gatlin
While you were (hopefully) sleeping last Thursday night, the government shut down. The only way most Americans would have noticed is if they were awoken by the shrill, indignant screams coming from senators made furious by having do their jobs. In the wee hours of Friday morning, congressional Republicans passed a bill that blew a $2 trillion-dollar black hole in the deficit, annihilated the budget caps, raised the debt ceiling, and funded all manner of unrelated spending, from agriculture subsidies to child care. All told, the bill amounted to spending that was 311 percent higher than President Obamas final budget request. Senate Republicans, all of whom ran on a platform of ...
