The Real Reasons Why Trump Has Flipped On His Campaign Promises
Post Date: 2017-05-04 13:38:06 by Deckard
1 Comments
Authored by Brandon Smith via PersonalLiberty.com, Back in December of 2016 I wrote an article titled Trump Is Exactly Where The Elites Want Him, which I think was very difficult for a large part of the liberty movement to read and accept. In that article I outlined the future of the Trump presidency; a future dominated by Washington insiders, Goldman Sachs internationalists and Neo-Con warmongers. Trump, at the very onset of his administration, broke one of his most important campaign promises — to “drain the swamp.” Instead, he filled his cabinet with all of the same swamp creatures he originally attacked; the same swamp creatures Hillary Clinton was notorious for serving. ...

Sean Spicer Promotes ‘Bollard Wall’ Fencing to Satisfy Budget Critics
Post Date: 2017-05-04 13:30:38 by Deckard

President Donald Trump did not get funding for his wall in the recent budget agreement with Democrats, but the White House is arguing that they did get funding for “wall” fencing. In a debate with Breitbart News, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer claimed that Republicans did get funding for a “wall,” pointing to existing photos of fences with bollard style steel construction and “levee walls.” “That is called a bollard wall,” he said to Breitbart News, pointing to photos he displayed on a screen. “That is called a levee wall.” Spicer refused to describe his fence photos as Trump’s promised wall, but assured them that ...

House to vote on health care bill Thursday
Post Date: 2017-05-03 21:05:26 by cranky
0 Comments
The House will vote Thursday on GOP legislation to repeal and replace Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, as Republicans finally aim to deliver on seven years of campaign promises that helped them gain control of Congress and the White House. But the move announced late Wednesday by GOP leaders also carries extreme political risk, as House Republicans prepare to endorse a bill that boots millions off the insurance rolls and may not even survive the Senate. "We will pass this bill," House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., confidently predicted after a day of wrangling votes and personal arm-twisting by President Donald Trump. Pressed by reporters as he exited a ...

Two Stories Signal Trump's No Longer Running the Show
Post Date: 2017-05-03 12:52:31 by Deckard
7 Comments
It strongly appears Trump is no longer is in control of his own presidency. Either he's being lied to and deceived by his staff, or more likely there's been a deep state coup. As we all know, the Republican's first budget under Trump literally hands everything to the Democrats. It explicitly bans any of the $1.1 trillion they're spending from going towards the wall and continues to fund Planned Parenthood as though Democrats were running the government. The excuse given is they want to pass an Obamacare replacement ASAP, but that's already falling apart and there's no reason they couldn't work on it despite a partial, so-called "government shutdown." ...

Save Liberty, Shut Down the Government

Congress ended the week by passing a continuing resolution keeping the government funded for one more week. This stopgap funding bill is designed to give Congress and the White House more time to negotiate a long-term spending bill. Passage of a long- term spending bill has been delayed over objections to Republican efforts to preserve Obamcare's key features but give states a limited ability to opt out of some Obamacare mandates. This type of brinkmanship has become standard operating procedure on Capitol Hill. The drama inevitably ends with a spending bill being crafted behind closed doors by small groups of members and staffers and then rushed to the floor and voted on before most ...

She is 28 Years Old & Is a Libertarian Katherine Timpf is 28 years old, and she was born in Detroit, Michigan, in 1988. She graduated in 2010 from Hillsdale College. “I’m definitely a libertarian, so I’m not as conservative on some things as Hillsdale [College] is,” she told The Collegian in 2015. “But I love the idea that the government does not get to decide what this private institution gets to teach.” When asked to define libertarianism, Timpf said that ...

Trump: “Bannon’s More Of a Libertarian Than Anything Else”

Despite recent reports that White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon had been sidelined within the administration, it appears he may be winning back the President’s favor. In an interview with Bloomberg, Trump defended Bannon, describing him as a “very decent guy who feels very strongly about the country” and had received a “bad rap” from the media. Trump also disputed the media’s portrayal of Bannon as an ‘alt-right’ figure, stating that he sees Bannon as “alt-left”, on the basis that “Bannon’s more of a libertarian than anything else.” In response to reports of tensions between Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared ...

Libertarianism Needs To Become More Realistic
Post Date: 2017-05-02 00:49:05 by Gatlin
0 Comments
Libertarianism is important, and I want it to be more influential. For it to do this though it has to become more realistic. I believe a major impediment is that many - though not all- libertarians imagine a vision of society that the vast majority of Americans simply do not want. If they somehow managed to win electoral power for a short time and execute their vision, it would be tremendously short lived with a massive backlash. [Boldness Added] Not a realistic libertarian. (AP Photo/Steve Helber, File) For proof of this, I think people just need to look around to state and local government. Most of us have little choice about which Federal government we live under.

GOP on verge of losing health care vote
Post Date: 2017-05-01 21:10:08 by cranky

The White House and congressional Republicans are in serious danger of not having enough votes to pass their health care bill. Several Republicans have come out Monday against the current measure to repeal and replace Obamacare, bringing CNN's whip count to 21 Republicans -- mostly moderates -- opposed to the bill with more than a dozen lawmakers still undecided. And President Donald Trump, whose White House was optimistic the House could pass a bill Wednesday, once again muddied the waters by suggesting the measure may still be changed. "I want it to be good for sick people. It's not in its final form right now," he said during an Oval Office interview Monday with ...

Spending bill language omits border wall funding, sanctuary cities crackdown
Post Date: 2017-05-01 16:03:03 by cranky

Republican and Democratic lawmakers forged a $1.07 trillion spending package that would fund the government through the end of September, but does not include some of President Trump’s cornerstone promises including funding for a border wall or funding cuts to sanctuary cities. The proposed legislation has no funding for Trump’s oft-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, but does set aside $1.5 billion for border security measures such as additional detention beds. It does give Trump a $12.5 billion down payment on his request to strengthen the military, a figure which could rise to $15 billion should Trump present Congress with a plan for fighting the Islamic State terror ...

Every detail was designed to mark Hillary Clinton’s moment in history — from the glass ceiling at Manhattan’s Javits Center, where her supporters were gathered, to her and hubby Bill’s suite at The Peninsula hotel, selected so she could personally see Trump Tower, home to the foe she was set to crush. Then came the voter returns. In this exclusive excerpt from their fascinating new book “Shattered,’’ political reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes take readers inside Hillary Clinton’s world on the night that changed her life — and the nation — forever.

For law-abiding gun owners, the president is keeping his promises. After eight long years, we once again have a president who respects and cherishes individual freedom. For America’s law-abiding gun owners, the Trump administration is proving to be among the best in history. So it’s important to take stock of all he has accomplished on behalf of the Second Amendment in a very short time. Thanks to President Trump, we are now back to having a 5-4 pro-gun majority on the U.S. Supreme Court. He appointed Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, which means the Department of Justice will return to focusing on prosecuting violent criminals instead of targeting law-abiding gun owners. In ...

A majority of voters say they believe President Donald Trump is keeping his campaign promises, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll that confirms what is expected to be the central theme of his first speech to a joint session of Congress. Trump, in a speech Tuesday night on Capitol Hill, will tout what the White House sees as a productive six weeks since taking office. The president and his administration believe they've begun to secure the nation's borders, bring jobs back to the U.S. and has started the arduous process of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act. Voters seem to agree, regardless of how they feel about Trump's priorities. A new ...

Here's everything you need to know about Florida's Augustus Sol Invictus Wait, what happened? If you don't know, Florida Senate candidate Augustus Sol Invictus (the only member of the Libertarian Party running to fill the seat vacated by presidential hopeful Marco Rubio) is accused of ritualistically sacrificing a goat in a pagan ceremony. The allegations came to light when Adrian Wyllie, the chairman of the Florida Libertarian Party, resigned on Thursday in protest at Invictus' candidacy; partially because of Invictus' claims he is destined to lead a second civil war and is really popular amongst white supremacists, but also because of this whole goat thing.

Libertarian Party Hails Satan In a Facebook Post

The Libertarian Party appears determined to remain relegated to never reaching five percent of the popular vote in a presidential election. In a post on the official Libertarian Party Facebook page, the party shared a macro image about the importance of self-ownership and personal responsibility. And while they could’ve cited any number of philosophers on the issue -- including the Founding Fathers -- the Libertarian Party decided to quote the Satanic Temple and the Satanic Seven Tenets, instead: Ironically, the image included the hashtag “#FREETOBELIEVE,” even though 2016 Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson called religious liberty a “black ...

Faced with new allegations of domestic abuse including sexual battery, Libertarian Party lightning rod and avowed ultranationalist Augustus Sol Invictus has been both lashing out at his “enemies” for what he calls slander and pursuing a deal he says will heal his reputation and his relationship with the party. Invictus, who ran as a candidate for the Libertarian Party of Florida’s U.S. Senate nomination but lost in the primary, was accused in a March 21 report filed with the Edgewood Police Department by an unidentified woman. She said that during their 15-month relationship that ended early this year he repeatedly verbally, physically and sexually assaulted her, and even ...

A Grand Forks man who is a frequent Libertarian political candidate has been accused of domestic violence against his wife. Roland Clifford Riemers, 73, was charged Monday in Grand Forks District Court with simple assault-domestic violence, a Class B misdemeanor. He was booked Sunday evening into the Grand Forks County Correctional Center. Court documents accuse Riemers of striking his wife, Meixiang Lui, in the face and stomping on her foot, causing pain, swelling and bruising. The incident allegedly happened 2 a.m. Sunday. Lui filed a domestic violence protection order against Riemers in January 2016. Aside from traffic violations, this is his first charge in North Dakota. Riemers ...

The Right Engle: How to Talk to Non-Libertarians

The United States Libertarian Party is a strange beast. It has a wide following within the movement and is comfortably the country’s third largest party. Yet, it’s had little meaningful electoral success in the decades of its existence. Smaller parties in other countries, with far less widespread support have managed to convert their core base into electoral breakthrough; so, what is causing this failure in the Libertarian Party? Servant of Many Masters Part of the problem is the dual mandate the party has given itself – to both compete in elections and be an educator on libertarian principles and policy. A political party, by its nature, is distinct from any think tank, ...

“Libertarians and anarchists often get challenged with an annoying question,” Warren Redlich, the CEO of Independent Political Report and a former Libertarian Party candidate, recently wrote: “If libertarianism is so great, why hasn’t any country tried it?” [1] There is no doubt that the question has been asked often, and that it is meant to be annoying. Consider the source: Michael Lind. Lind, for those who have never heard of him, is a writer for the New America Foundation who has achieved some online notoriety as a professional anti-libertarian. (A google search on “Lind libertarianism” turns up more than 100,000 hits.) Lind first came to my attention ...

President Donald Trump on Saturday marked his 100th day in office by saying he had brought "profound change" to Washington and reaffirming that "my only allegiance" is to those he governs. On a threshold that Trump has both derided and tried to define, the president also said he is putting Americans first even as he learns on the job. "My only allegiance is to you, our wonderful citizens," Trump said in his weekly radio address. It was a preview of a day on which Trump was traveling to Pennsylvania to emphasize such priorities as American manufacturing, better trade deals for the U.S. and his underdog victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton in November.

Many farmers are replacing migrant laborers with high-tech, high-wage productivity improvements, but President Donald Trump’s new agriculture secretary is reportedly lobbying to boost the food industry’s supply of cheap-labor illegal migrants. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told an audience on Friday that he’s pressing Trump to allow farmers and food processors to keep employing cheap illegal-alien manual labor. Trump “understands that there are … undocumented immigrant laborers, out here on the farms, many of them that are doing a great job, contributing to the economy of the United States,” Perdue said April 28, according to a report in Harvest Public ...

Delingpole: Trump Will Use Art of the Deal to Kill Paris Climate Treaty

President Trump’s latest moves on the Paris agreement are – depending on your point of view – either a masterstroke of realpolitik by a consummate dealmaker or a shameful fudge: he has decided to kick the can down the road by leaving the decision up to the Senate. This isn’t, of course, what he promised on the campaign trail. In May last year in North Dakota he was quite explicit: We’re going to cancel the Paris Climate Agreement and stop all payments of U.S. tax dollars to UN global warming programs. What he probably wasn’t banking on, though, when he made that commitment was that it wouldn’t just be the liberals and greenies he’d be battling – ...

Roy Moore to Run for Jeff Sessions’ Senate Seat

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, currently serving a suspension for the remainder of his term, plans to run for the U.S. Senate seat left vacant when Jeff Sessions became U.S. attorney general. According to AL.com, the judge will seek the Republican Party’s nomination to succeed Sessions, who held the seat for 20 years before being appointed by President Trump. Moore was suspended last year after being found guilty of ethics violations in his defiance of a Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriages. Moore had issued an administrative order informing Alabama’s 68 probate judges of their “ministerial duty” not to issue same-sex marriage licenses, despite the U.S. high ...
