    On January 24, 2017, the FBI interviewed Michael Flynn. At the time, Flynn was found to have done nothing wrong. The FBI eavesdropped on telephone calls between President Donald Trump's national security adviser and the Russian ambassador but found nothing improper, a U.S. intelligence official said. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media, said late Monday that there was never a formal "investigation" of the calls in December between retired Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn and Sergei Kislyak, Russia's ambassador in Washington. According to the source, who was confirming...

    Peter Vlaming teaches French at West Point High School in West Point, Virginia. He was fired by the school board last Thursday for refusing to use a transgender student’s preferred pronoun. (The student was born as a biological female but wishes to use the pronouns “he” and “him.”)The school’s administration claims that Vlaming was told multiple times to refer to the student using male pronouns. “By failing to follow the directive, he was therefore discriminating and creating a hostile environment,” the superintendent told the board.The next day, students at the school coordinated a walkout in support of Vlaming. Several...

    Pundit Tucker Carlson has all the pedigree to be comfortably sitting among the Americas ruling aristocracy. Born Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson, his stepmother, Patricia Swanson, is an heiress to the Swanson frozen-food fortune and the niece of Senator J. William Fulbright. His father, Richard Warner Carlson, served as U.S. Ambassador to the Seychelles and was president of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and director of Voice of America in the Reagan administration. Carlsons new book, Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution, lays out his political views as populist and unpredictable,...

    And just to think that Reps. Speier, and Snchez will be part of the attack when the Democrats try to impeach President Trump for allegedly paying hush money to Stormy Daniels from campaign finances when new members are sworn in on January 3, 2019 Salacious accusations that Donald Trump paid hush money from campaign finances to adult entertainer Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with him, have suddenly become the latest drive to impeach him. But the burning unasked question to the media of the day should be: How can we take seriously any of your accusations when...

    Comey needs the Democrats to win in 2020 to vindicate Comey The firing of James Comey was a shock to many and may have been to him, or his apparent ego, but it is now apparent that the first Deep State casualty of the Swamp Wars may have been justified. Comey was portrayed as a thorough professional, and although he was a registered Republican, he was not supposed to be affected by Party politics in his job. Even in May of 2017, just after Comey was fired, Peter Elkind, writing in The New Yorker took great pains to defend what...

Whine Cellar King Chuck Schumer and those brave boys grown tall hiding behind the voluminous skirts of the #MeToo Movement coyly identifying as feminists are. Males who wear their self guilt as openly as they do their neckties such as Michael Skolnik, who as it turns out, led Louis Farrakhan advocating women lemming-like out on the Big Womens March, are much more Pelosis cup of tepid tea.|

Mahmoudi After a 2 day trip to Italy by Zarif, the Iranian regimes Foreign Minister, from which he returned on Friday (date?), his deputy, Araghchi, and Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization, went to Brussels on Saturday. The main purpose of these trips, according to Araghchi, is to save the JCPOA, which is not at all in good condition and currently at a critical point of high risk. State TV channel 2 (NOV 26 2018) in an article titled "Europe's Controversy at the Political Heart of the Green Continent," interpreted the news as follows: Araghchi, deputy foreign...

    The proper term for the actions of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill graduate student assistants and instructors threatening to withhold grades unless Silent Sama statue of a Confederate soldier who was pulled off his pedestal by a mob of activists in Augustis removed from campus is not strike, as the activists claim. It is blackmail. Blackmail is when one individual or group holds information over anothers head to force them to do their bidding. Granted, this one has a slight twist; usually, blackmail consists of somebody having damaging information that will humiliate or damage their victim unless...

    Referencing an incident involving John Kelly and Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL), New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lambasted the outgoing White House Chief of Staff claiming he is a coward. Kelly had a very public clash with Wilson when the congresswoman used the death of an American soldier to criticize President Trump while later celebrating that the incident had made her a rock star. Wilson listened in on a conversation between Trump and the wife of slain U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson, alleging that the President callously said her husband knew what he signed up for. Kelly responded by blasting...

    A court recently upheld New Jerseys ban on firearm magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but state officials have steadfastly refused to inform the citizens just how they intend to enforce that law. But the fact that it was upheld and coupled with news in a growing list of other states not to mention the noise from Washington DC proves that the Democrats intend to make 2019 the year of gun confiscation and ending the Second Amendment in every way without saying it openly. As to New Jersey, Governor Phil Murphy signed the ban on extended magazines in...

    The Left is fond of calling we who hold to the principles of freedom, self-empowerment, equality under the law, law-and-order, strong defense, family values, etc. as fascist. Let us review what fascism is about and who is actually fascist: If you have no problem with big government/high taxes because "we are the government" you are a #Statist. If you think that everything is generated by society, so resources should be allocated by its agent, the State, you are a #Collectivist. If you think private property should only be tolerated if it serves the public interest as determined by the...

    Speer's Grand Slam expands well, is available for cartridges from .243 to .375 for midsized, arge game. It was the last day of the New York firearm deer season, and I had been having a rough go of it. To be honest, it was one of the worst seasons I'd ever had; I began to believe that all the antlered deer had been rounded up and shipped to a different part of the world. The morning had been spent watching the gray squirrels doing squirrelly things, and I sat rather melancholy after lunch, wondering if one more hunt was even...

"This is a most unfortunate thing. We came in here in good faith and were entering this kind of discussion in the public view. Pelosi How dare he - exposing us to the public this way!?

I may differ with you, however, in that I think he could win the whole thing, i.e., get elected President.” Well, we don’t differ at all, Michael.

    In just hours (1pm Eastern Time US) the Conservative Party MP's are holding a snap vote on Theresa May's leadership of the Conservative Party. Enough Tory MP's signed letters (48) to trigger the vote in opposition to her Brexit plan. In 1990 the pro-European Union forces triggered a leadership vote in opposition to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Even though Thatcher won a majority of the vote, but needed a second ballot to get a bigger majority, she ended up deciding to leave. If May wins the vote, will her political operatives spin the tale that she won a great victory...
