  • Peter Schweizer Explains How China Purchased U.S. Congress as a Trade Strategy…

    03/21/2018 9:45:51 PM PDT · by bitt · 12 replies
    A timely book by Peter Schweizer, “Secret Empires”, explains how Chinese companies purchased U.S. politicians to gain trade advantages. When you understand this process, you better understand why those same politicians today are against the Trump trade policy that is antithetical to their purchased interests. Reminder: U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue is warning President Trump not to take any trade action against China or he will unleash his purchased control agents within congress and financial media to destroy his presidency. Allow me to re-emphasize: All opposition to President Trump stems from the underlying financial and economic policy. All...

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, fresh off of not apologizing for the social media giant’s failure to prevent sketchy election data firm Cambridge Analytica from partnering with a similarly sketchy app to allegedly scrape 50 million users’ profile data, briefly emerged from his gilded panic room on Wednesday evening for an interview with CNN’s Laurie Segall in which he largely repeated his PR department’s talking points. With all the charm of an awkward teenage robot in a wig, Zuckerberg finally clarified that he was “really sorry that this happened.” He reiterated that he believed the company made big mistakes, first by...

    Harvard's Dershowitz, former prosecutor diGenova say the special counsel failed to uncover credible evidence of Trump collusion with Moscow. Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of allegations of collusion between President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russian political and business interests increasingly looks like it is coming up empty, a pair of legal experts said Monday... Joseph diGenova, a former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia under President Ronald Reagan, said during a separate appearance on the Ingraham program that Mueller's probe should end. "Whatever purpose it had in the beginning, that purpose has now been served, and it is...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Last week they protested gun violence. This week, Rocklin High School students are using social media to organize a pro-life walkout using the hashtag #life. “To honor all the lives of aborted babies pretty much. All the millions of aborted babies every year,” said organizer Brandon Gillespie. He says his history teacher inspired the idea. As thousands of students across the country walked out of class demanding strict gun laws, in honor of the Parkland shooting victims, Benzel was placed on paid administrative leave when she asked students to consider whether there’s a double standard in the...

    Brenda Arthur received an unexpected visit on March 8 that, one week later, leaves her feeling more than a little uneasy. At her door that day was an officer with the West Virginia State Police. He wanted to know about her involvement in a Freedom of Information request regarding a local mosque. Arthur, who will turn 67 this summer, is leader of the West Virginia chapter of ACT For America, whose mission is to educate Americans about the advancement of Islamic principles in Western societies.

    When political activists are attempting to pass a long-term agenda with emotion and fear, they cannot allow dissent. The emotional narrative they are pushing is fragile. Dissent causes people to think. Thinking causes the narrative to collapse. Andy Dalsin, alone and courageous high school student, stood up to the organized political agenda of the left. He “spoke truth to power”. He was not allowed to protest with others of his school, but was driven off by the school principal, Lonnie Seifert. From, video at link: Dalsin said principal Lonnie Seifert told him to give up a sign that...

    Make no mistake, Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook are in trouble — not just here in America, but all over the world. The Tech Tyrant has only himself to blame. Had he just left us alone, he would not be so alone or widely viewed as a monopoly with all the inherent risks in that. He would also not be a national pariah. When you are in charge of something, be it a Girl Scout troop or one of the most powerful tech companies in the world, the only way to stay out of trouble is with simple and clear rules...
  • Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner is dead meat

    In 30 years of writing op-ed columns for the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times, I'm hard pressed to recall making any political predictions. I prefer to leave it to the Chicago Tribune's Eric Zorn. But here comes an exception. Bruce Rauner has slit his throat, with his general incompetence and a campaign that was so dishonest that it set some sort of record in a state where truth is typically flushable. The way he failed to get a single one of his goals accomplished in his three and a half years as governor is by itself a flop worthy of...

    When all seemed lost, a little city made the move to help Make California Great Again. Los Alamitos, the second smallest city in Orange County, just passed a huge ordinance asserting the city’s compliance with the United States Constitution. Specifically, in an unprecedented yet necessary state, the council voted to opt out of the immoral, unconstitutional mandates of SB 54, aka the California “Values” Act or Sanctuary State law.For the last three years, California’s Democratic dominance has voted to disregard federal immigration laws. Now they are seeing their deep blue bubble burst. Whether they like it or not, California remains...

    Most people know that a new president gets to name over 4,000 political appointees when they are elected. This political cronyism is partisan politics and fills our bloated government with unqualified employees. Some think that these are the people that comprise the Deep State. But the Deep State is much deeper than that. There is a much more sinister system in place that controls Washington D. C.’s bureaucracies through an actual, organized shadow government called the Deep State. It is the heart of the swamp. And in this American Intelligence Media citizen intelligence report, we are going to show you...

    A former Marine, who claims to have worked as a special agent with the Department of Energy, has been charged with shooting and running over Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman, who conducted a controversial investigation of former DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder. Kevin Doherty, 46, was charged Monday with Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony and two counts of Malicious Wounding, according to a press release from the Arlington, Va, Co. police department. The Washington Post provided more details about the attack, which was the second to befall Burkman over the past several months. An unidentified assailant...

    President Donald Trump advised Congressional Republicans to move further to the right side of the political spectrum, noting that Democrats were moving further left. “They have gone so far left, we have to go a little bit further right,” Trump told Republicans and donors at the National Republican Congressional Committee fundraising dinner on Tuesday night. Trump remarked that Congressional Democrats were moving left on nearly every issue, just like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “These days, there’s no such thing as a Blue Dog Democrat, a Red State Democrat, or a Conservative Democrat because they are all Pelosi Democrats,” he said,...

    More California cities may consider defying the state’s “sanctuary state” laws, after the city council of Los Alamitos passed an ordinance defying the state’s controversial new legislation preventing cooperation with federal immigration authorities. Leaders of Los Alamitos, in Orange County, passed the ordinance 4-1 and instructed the city attorney to file an amicus brief in the ongoing Department of Justice lawsuit against the State of California. The lawsuit challenges the Immigrant Worker Protection Act (HB 450), the Inspection and Review of Facilities Housing Federal Detainees law (AB 103); and the California Values Act (SB 54). The Orange County Register reports...

    he year was 1990 and Republican U.S. Sen. Pete Wilson claimed his first term as California governor, replacing another Republican, George Deukmejian. Two years earlier, California voters helped send George H.W. Bush to the White House with a 3.6-point win over Democrat Michael Dukakis. Nearly three decades later, so much has changed. Democrats have monopolized California government, with the party holding every statewide office and dominating both chambers of the Legislature. Bush was the last Republican to win a presidential contest in the state. President Donald Trump lost California by over 4 million votes to Hillary Clinton.
  • University no longer banning conservative student from class

    Nearly a month after a student was barred from attending a religious studies class, Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) has reversed course, suspending normal policies and procedures. Lake Ingle, a student enrolled in "RLST 481 - Special Topic - Self, Sin, and Salvation," a course taught by IUP Professor Alison Downie that he needs in order to graduate, objected to his instructor's claims regarding the "reality of white male privilege," on February 28. Ingle also rebutted claims made in a video shown in class that featured a transgender woman, stating that there are only two genders and arguing that the...

    The draft 2018 omnibus bill denies President Donald Trump explicit authority to withhold federal grants from the Democratic-dominated “sanctuary cities” which are trying to secede from the nation’s immigration laws, say Hill sources. There is “nothing in the omnibus bill to stop funding for the sanctuary cities,” said a source. “It will just be a continuation of the status quo” because Democrats threatened to torpedo the funding bill if it included new rules allowing administration officials to block federal funding to the cities which shield illegals from deportation, the source said.
  • CNN Cancels Interview With Conservative Parkland Student Over Retweet

    It took five weeks for Kyle Kashuv, the conservative Parkland shooting survivor, to be granted an interview with CNN, despite several of his classmates getting plenty of airtime. Apparently, it has to do with one of his retweets. Kashuv's friend called to tell him the network had disinvited him. The tweet that got him booted was one composed by @ClayTravis, who called Brooke Baldwin a "fake news hypocrite." It seems Kashuv is taking the news in stride.
  • Qualified Immunity -- A Rootless Doctrine The Court Should Jettison

    In my previous article, I discussed the Supreme Court’s near abandonment of an actual, necessary part of the Constitution, namely the Contract Clause. Contrariwise, a case that the Court should hear involves a harmful legal doctrine that it simply made up, namely “qualified immunity.” Here’s the background. After the Civil War, most members of Congress were concerned that if the states had a free hand, they and their officials would often violate the civil rights of freed slaves and other unpopular groups. So Congress passed and President Grant signed the Civil Rights Act of 1871, which included this provision language...
