Mitch McConnell Is The Reason Doug Jones Is A Senator
Post Date: 2017-12-13 03:45:18 by Gatlin
While Mitch McConnell and his allies will try to blame conservatives for nominating Roy Moore, its important to remember that McConnell is the main reason Roy Moore was nominated. The moment it was clear there would be a Special Election to replace Jeff Sessions, McConnell and his PAC, Senate Leadership Fund (SLF) declared they would back Luther Strange and vowed to spend millions on his behalf. Strange was a flawed candidate from the jump. The circumstances around his appointment by scandal-ridden Governor Robert Bentley were sketchy at best, and rightly or wrongly, voters just never trusted him. Looking back, an establishment candidate like Strange, beset by issues surrounding his ...
Mystery Funders Behind Super PAC Backing Jones In Alabama Finally Exposed [Soros]
Post Date: 2017-12-12 10:54:02 by Tooconservative
The mystery super PAC that has poured more than $4 million into Alabamas special Senate election on Tuesday is controlled by two of the Democrats largest super PACs both of which are funded by Democratic megadonor George Soros. While Jones tries to appear detached from Washington special interests, a Politico report published late Monday revealed that mystery super PAC Highway 31 "is a joint project of two of the largest national Democratic super PACs Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA Action." Politico notes: Highway 31 was created in November, Federal Election Commission filings show. Though Birmingham lawyer Edward Still is listed as the ...
‘One of our attorneys is a Jew’
Post Date: 2017-12-12 09:23:52 by Willie Green
It was the final night of campaigning for Alabamas U.S. Senate seat and all eyes were on Republican candidate Roy Moore. But Twitter, at least, focused more on his wife, Kayla, and her remarks before he spoke.She didnt say precisely why she felt a need to get into the subject of Jews. But its a good guess that it had something to do with Roy Moores attack on billionaire liberal George Soros, who is Jewish and a regular target of far-right conservatives. Moore has accused Soros, based on no evidence, of financing the registration of former felons to vote in Alabama.Earlier in the campaign Moore, who has been accused of sexual misconduct, had attacked Soros for ...
House Passes Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill
Post Date: 2017-12-06 20:54:55 by Gatlin
WASHINGTON The House passed a bill Wednesday that allows concealed carry permit holders in different states to legally carry their firearms in other states. The bill, called the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, is combined with legislation that would tighten background checks that are reported from federal agencies. It passed 231-198. An overwhelming majority of Americans support concealed carry reciprocity. Momentum, common sense, and the facts are on our side, North Carolina Republican Rep. Richard Hudson said of his bill prior the vote in a statement. The bill faces tougher odds of passing in the Senate, where it will require 60 votes to get through a procedural ...
House Rejects Impeachment Measure, Lawmakers Overwhelmingly Reject Resolution By Dem Al Green
Post Date: 2017-12-06 20:40:26 by Gatlin
The House overwhelmingly rejected an attempt by Democrat Representative Al Green to impeach the president. On Wednesday, 364 lawmakers immediately voted to kill Greens impeachment measure with only 58 Democrats voting to move ahead. The resolution was expected to fail as it was widely opposed by Republicans and most Democrats. Texas Congressman Al Green has described the president as having behavior unfit for the oval office, but previous accusations against the congressman himself reveal his own behavior was out of line. Green is a vocal member of the anti-Trump movement in the House of Representatives, and has been at the forefront of the liberal effort to see ...

Supreme Court allows full enforcement of Trump’s travel ban
Post Date: 2017-12-04 20:45:16 by Gatlin
President Trump scored a victory on Monday when the Supreme Court allowed the administration to fully enforce a ban on travel to the US by residents of six Muslim- majority countries. The justices said that the policy can take full effect even as legal challenges against it make their way through the courts. The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. Lower courts had said people from those nations with a claim of a bona fide relationship with someone in the United States could not be kept out of the country. Grandparents, cousins and other relatives were among those courts said could not be excluded. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia ...
Dershowitz: Come On, You Can’t Charge Trump With Obstruction
Post Date: 2017-12-04 17:23:24 by Gatlin
Can Congress impeach Donald Trump for obstruction of justice in the firing of James Comey? Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) made that argument yesterday on NBCs Meet the Press, telling Chuck Todd that the Senate Judiciary Committee has nearly completed its review of the matter. Feinstein argued that Trumps action in firing Comey for his refusal to lift the cloud by stating publicly that Trump was not a target of the FBI investigation amounts to obstruction of justice. Nonsense, constitutional law expert Alan Dershowitz told Fox News this morning. Presidents cannot obstruct justice by exercising legitimate authority under Article II of the US Constitution, Dershowitz ...
He’s Been Named the “Worst Republican Governor in America” After Funding Abortions With Tax Dollars
Post Date: 2017-12-04 17:00:22 by Gatlin
The governor of Illinois recently earned the title of worst Republican governor in America for his support of a radical new pro-abortion law. The label for Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner came from the National Review, one of the top conservative magazines in the country, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. In September, Rauner drew the ire of conservatives across the country when he went back on his word and signed a bill to force taxpayers to pay for abortions. The new law keeps abortion on demand up to birth legal and establishes the Land of Lincoln as a safe haven for women seeking abortions. The law also forces taxpayers in the already cash-strapped state to pay for ...
NO ACCIDENT: FBI Knows Bill Clinton SET UP Meeting with Lynch
Post Date: 2017-12-04 14:10:38 by Gatlin
They say that Lynch sweated when Bill Clinton entered her airplane. She certainly had reason. Because aside from the potential for sexual assault, Bill Clinton was there for answers. And to pedal a bit of former-president influence. Now the question is, How did Bill Clinton know how to find Lynch? There was an obvious intelligence breach within the FBI who alerted Bill Clinton to stalk Lynch and thus set up the infamous tarmac meeting. Sources say Lynch was taken aback and reportedly physically shaken by Clintons seemingly impromptu visit at Phoenix Sky Harbor airport tarmac on June 27, 2016, just one week before a scheduled FBI interrogation of his wife ...
General Mike FlynnÂ’s Only Crime
Post Date: 2017-12-04 13:56:25 by Gatlin
General Mike Flynns inexplicable decision to plead guilty to lying to the FBI was disappointing to his many supporters in conservative national security circles. However, in one respect it was understandable; Flynn was being crushed by the legal bills required to defend himself against the relentless pursuit of Robert Mueller and his unlimited manpower and budget. Compared to the modest resources Flynn could muster from his military pension and his brief career as a consultant it was a steamroller vs a mongoose and no matter how feisty the mongoose he would eventually be crushed. Pleading guilty to a questionable charge was the only way for General Flynn to get his life back. ...
Former Rep. Corrine Brown Sentenced to Five Years
Post Date: 2017-12-04 13:46:06 by Gatlin
A federal court sentenced former Florida Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown to five years in prison Monday for fraud and conspiracy charges, according to WOKV. Brown was found guilty in May for fraudulently taking thousands of dollars from her bogus charity One Door for Education, concealing income on financial filings and filing false tax returns. Browns former chief of staff Ronnie Simmons and his ex-girlfriend, Carla Wiley, who ran the bogus charity, were sentenced to 48 months in jail and 21 months in jail with a three-year supervised release, respectively. Wiley and Simmons both pleaded guilty. U.S. District Judge Timothy Corrigan ordered Brown to report to prison no later than ...
What They Will Never Do
Post Date: 2017-12-03 07:10:54 by Gatlin
As just about everyone in the English-speaking world already knows, late last night the Senate passed the tax reform package on a party-line vote, 51-49. (Tennessees Senator Bob Corker was the lone Republican to vote against it.) The bill includes provisions that not everyone will like it will hurt homeowners in high-tax states such as New York and California but it achieves several important things, including the repeal of the individual mandate provision of ObamaCare. There will be a joint House-Senate conference to resolve differences in the chambers bills. I predict that the most important features will survive. The ...
When Older Americans Die Who Will Speak For Freedom?
Post Date: 2017-12-03 06:56:18 by Gatlin
After writing a weekly conservative column for 12 years, one thing has become crystal clear. Only older Americans are reading and responding to what we write. When we say older Americans, we mean those over 70 years of age, with many of our responses coming from individuals well over 80.The results of the 2016 presidential election tell the story from the exit polls. 18 to 29 year-olds went 55% for Clinton. 30 to 44 year-olds went 50% for Clinton. 45 to 65 year-olds went 53% for Trump and 65 year-olds and older also went 53% for Trump. The male-female vote was essentially split. 54% of females voted for Clinton and 53% of males voted for Trump.But in the 2016 Primaries, what is even more ...
Reports: Mueller fires two from FBI assigned to his team whose anti-Trump texts could taint inquest

Multiple media outlets are reporting today details of how two romantically-involved FBI agents assigned to Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller IIIs investigation of possible collusion between Donald J. Trumps presidential campaign and Russian government officials were fired by Mueller after he became aware of their text messages disparaging the president and praising Hillary R. Clintonincluding commentary about presidential debate performances. The New York Times reported today that senior FBI agent Peter Strzok, the bureaus deputy head of counter-intelligence, was reassigned to the FBIs human resources section after Mueller learned of his text messages that came ...

Next Time A Democrat Talks About Dignity in Public Office, Show Them This List News Commentary By Thomas | Featured Commentator | December 1, 2017 2:42PM As The Political Insider reported, back in 2015, Charlie Rose had on actor Kevin Spacey as a guest, who himself has been among those outed as sexual predators. This video is so incredibly awkward, given that both Rose and Spacey have just ruined their careers after extensive sexual harassment accusations. Watch (below) the awkward interview where they discuss the shameful abuse of women by former President Bill Clinton. And of course, the two of them dismiss the accusations in a discussion that Rose leads with describing the ...
Byron York: Nunes blows up, threatens contempt after FBI stonewalls House on Russia investigator demoted for anti-Trump bias
Post Date: 2017-12-03 06:08:09 by Gatlin
House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has issued an angry demand to the FBI and Department of Justice to explain why they kept the committee in the dark over the reason Special Counsel Robert Mueller kicked a key supervising FBI agent off the Trump-Russia investigation. Stories in both the Washington Post and New York Times on Saturday reported that Peter Strzok, who played a key role in the original FBI investigation into the Trump- Russia matter, and then a key role in Mueller's investigation, and who earlier had played an equally critical role in the FBI's Hillary Clinton email investigation, was reassigned out of the Mueller office because of anti-Trump texts he ...

Methinks the sketchy FBI investigators are well aware of the risk if they become the subjects of the investigations. Specifically, as we noted earlier today, the orchestrated Deep State media leak within the Washington Post and New York Times is a clear indication the FBI political co- conspirators are aware of their exposure
And Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, is righteously upset. Because, like us, Mr. Nunes can see how this game is being played out. The recently demoted FBI Deputy Head of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok was not only the lead FBI agent in charge of the Clinton email investigation
and he was not only the agent that interviewed ...

John McCain Will Vote “Yes” on Tax Reform
Post Date: 2017-11-30 17:27:43 by Gatlin
Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., said in a statement he will vote Yes on tax reform, making it much more likely President Donald Trump and Republicans clear the bar on the historic bill. After careful thought and consideration, I have decided to support the Senate tax reform bill, Senator McCain said. I believe this legislation, though far from perfect, would enhance American competitiveness. boost the economy, and provide long overdue tax relief for middle class families. The Arizona senator was one of a handful of Republicans uncertain about how they would vote. The president was in Missouri yesterday pushing his tax cut and tax reform agenda, a Red ...

Is Washington the Most Corrupt Government in History?
Post Date: 2017-11-30 12:56:08 by Deckard
The man who died twice Paul Craig Roberts Robert Mueller, a former director of the FBI who is working as a special prosecutor investigating a contrived hoax designed by the military/security complex and the DNC to destroy the Trump presidency, has yet to produce a scrap of evidence that Russiagate is anything but orchestrated fake news. As William Binney and other top experts have said, if there is evidence of Russiagate, the NSA would have it. No investigation would be necessary. So where is the evidence? It is a revelation of how corrupt Washington is that a fake scandal is being investigated while a real scandal is not. The fake scandal is Trumps Russiagate. The real ...

Republican Victory May Rest Once Again With McCain, This Time on TaxesSenator John McCain of Arizona arrived for a vote at the Capitol on Monday.

Once again, it could all come down to Senator John McCain.After sinking his partys hopes of repealing the Affordable Care Act this year with a dramatic thumbs-down, the fate of a tax overhaul may now sit in the hands of the Republican from Arizona. In recent days, Mr. McCain has been fairly tight-lipped about his views on the tax proposal speeding through the Senate, saying he sees some problems with the existing bill but is waiting for a ...

WASHINGTON The House Judiciary Committee plans to mark up the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act this Wednesday. The bill would certify that each state recognize the concealed carry firearm credentials of other states. Additionally, the bill mandates that states allow their own residents to carry firearms through non-resident permits they obtained from another state.
