  • 25 States Move to Keep Trump Off 2020 Ballot

    The latest resistance plan against President Donald Trump's 2020 election campaign includes attempts in at least 25 states to pass a law that requires presidential candidates to release their tax returns to appear on the ballot. President Trump is the only modern-day president to refuse to release his personal tax returns, so conceivably a law passed to require that could block him from the ballot. The issue with that trolling plan is no state has been able to officially pass a law requiring it. Even deep blue California and New Jersey have vetoed the laws after it had passed both...

    Last month, the United Nations' International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA) held a week-long conference geared towards making gun control an international priority. Now, the UN's Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, is wanting to regulate and control small arms. During RevCon3, the conference on the programme of action on small arms and light weapons, Guterres had a message delivered on his behalf (emphasis mine):

  • Congress To Give Jeff Sessions More Power To Ban Whatever Substance He Doesn't Like

    Authored by Michael Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog, Allowing government to arbitrarily determine which substances human beings can put into their own bodies is one of the most idiotic things a society can do. As such, its no surprise Congress is salivating at the prospect of furthering this travesty by giving additional discretion on the matter to drug war-crazed loon, Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Reason published an excellent article on the topic in yesterday’s piece: Congress Wants To Give Jeff Sessions Unprecedented New Drug War Powers. Here are some key excerpts: If you think the Department of Justice has more than...
  • Trump calls Nevada Dem Senate candidate 'Wacky Jacky,' renews 'Pocahontas' jab at Warren

    President Trump slammed the Democratic lawmaker challenging Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) on Saturday, dubbing Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) "Wacky Jacky" in a fiery campaign speech. Speaking at the Nevada state GOP convention, Trump attacked Rosen for campaigning with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D), whom he again called the racially charged nickname "Pocahontas." "[Heller's] opponent wants to raise taxes," Trump said, to boos. "She wants to raise taxes, think of it. I mean, it's ridiculous. Should I mention her name?" Trump paused as the crowd egged him on to say the name. "I have a great nickname for her," Trump added....

    If I asked you to bring me a single feathered egg of a unicorn, and I offered to buy it at any price you name, you couldn’t do it. You also likely would consider me mad—and with reason. If I asked you to bring me a single page of written notes from the illegal wiretapping of Watergate telephone conversations, and I offered to buy it at any price you name, you couldn’t do that, either. That’s because the wiretapping notes, or “logs,” that you were told about—over and over and over and over, by CIA mouthpieces at The Washington Post,...

    Slate ^ | June 21, 2018 | Mark Joseph Stern
    What is Justice Elena Kagan doing? So far this term, the liberal justice has crossed ideological lines at least three times to join the Supreme Court’s conservatives. Most recently, on Thursday, Kagan authored the majority opinion in Lucia v. SEC, a huge case that threatens to erode the political independence of multiple federal agencies. Tearing down the “administrative state” is supposed to be Justice Neil Gorsuch’s pet project. In Lucia, though, it was Kagan who took the lead in undermining the civil service, authoring an opinion that prompted a sharp dissent by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who accused her colleague of...
  • CIA Director Reveals He Was Once a Communist Sympathizer (BRENNAN)

    New York Magazine ^ | June 23, 2018 | Eric Levitz
    In 1976, future CIA director John Brennan was a college student disgusted by Watergate and the “system” that produced it. As the young Brennan surveyed the political landscape, only one candidate seemed to be speaking the truth about the need for real change (and/or the dictatorship of the proletariat) — Communist Party nominee Gus Hall. But by 1980, Brennan grown out of Marxist-Leninism, realized American-style capitalism was the one true way, and decided to devote his life to Uncle Sam’s intelligence apparatus. Or so that former pinko now claims.

    A 13-year-old hauled into the principal's office for not serving his detention may end up with the biggest detention of all: a felony conviction. That's because the kid recorded the conversation on his phone. The incident took place last February at Manteno Middle School, which is about an hour outside of Chicago. Young Paul Boron was arguing with Principal David Conrad and Assistant Principal Nathan Short. About ten minutes into the meeting, which was held with the door open, Boron told the men he was recording it. At that point, the principal told Boron he was committing a felony and...

    The president runs the executive branch, after all. I confess to being more weary than dizzy from the Dr. Gowdy–and–Mr. Trey routine. Just three weeks ago, Representative Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican who chairs the House Oversight Committee, ( assured us) that everything was peachy with the FBI — no way, no how did the bureau “spy” on the Trump campaign when it deployed an “informant” to pry information from Trump-campaign officials. As (Mollie Hemingway) pointed out at the time, Gowdy had not seen relevant documents the FBI and Justice Department have been withholding from Congress — in fact, his...

    First to answer the inevitable question as to why Peter Strzok is still employed by the FBI. Because Inspectors General, in this case Michael Horowitz, cannot "interview" former employees, only current ones, and the IG isn't done with Agent Strzok just yet. Why doesn't Strzok just resign, as others have? Because he is negotiating with Horowitz/Huber (Sessions?) as to how long he may be in prison, and he still has information which, at least in the mind of Strzok, has more value than Horowitz/Huber esteem it to have. What might this information be? Is it just not valuable? Unlikely but...

    Gary Byrne, an author and former Secret Service Agent, has filed a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) suit against Bill and Hillary Clinton, George Soros, John Podesta and David Brock, among others. A summary of the RICO suit says in part: “For the past decade in which relevant predicate acts were corruptly carried out by the named defendants as “payback” for Plaintiff Gary Byrne’s role in the Clinton impeachment and his status as a “Clinton enemy” (for his temerity in telling the truth concerning obstruction of justice and gross abuse of power), along with their corrupt surrogates and...

    The fuming, unhinged liberals at MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday came completely unglued as they compared Donald Trump’s voters to Nazi's and the President himself to madman Kim Jong-un. It began with Mika Brzezinski proclaiming that President Trump “will forever be remembered as the president who traumatized little children.” She continued by comparing him to the bloodthirsty tyrant Kim Jong-un who has killed his own family, “he traumatized them for his political gain or to look like Kim Jong-un." Brzezinski’s absurd comments were followed by Donny Deutsch who went as far as condemning the close to 63,000,000 voters of Donald...

    Advocates of “commonsense gun safety” measures have been promoting two major objectives. One is universal background checks, about which the National Institute of Justice wrote “effectiveness depends on . . . requiring gun registration.” Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) just introduced a bill in Congress that would do just that – create a national registry of all firearm owners. The other objective is a ban on “assault weapons,” which have been defined in contradictory, bizarre, ways. The American Medical Association has just reaffirmed its endorsement of such a ban, including the confiscation of all such firearms from Americans at large. Why...

    PHOENIX — Gov. Doug Ducey won’t debate his Republican foe, with an aide calling Ken Bennett a “fringe’’ candidate despite the fact he was elected secretary of state in 2010. But he will have to face him in August, at least on the ballot, if not on TV. J.P. Twist, who is managing Ducey’s re-election campaign, said the incumbent sees no reason to share the stage with Bennett, pointing out that the two faced off in a multi-candidate race for the GOP nomination four years ago. Ducey won the primary — Bennett placed fourth — and later went on to...

    A lawsuit seeks to knock Ken Bennett off the ballot for Arizona governor over accusations that he did not submit enough valid voter signatures to qualify was dismissed Thursday. Majority of LD28 candidate Mark Syms’ petition signatures deemed invalid Bennett, a former Arizona secretary of state, is challenging Gov. Doug Ducey for the Republican nomination in the Aug. 28 primary election. Political supporters of Gov. Ducey filed the lawsuit Wednesday arguing Bennett’s signatures are invalid for a host of reasons, including they don’t match signatures on voter records or were signed by Democrats or unregistered voters. Primary candidates in Arizona...
