"People like @jtimberlake, @JimBelushi, #KateWinslet, and others will promote it and praise him for it.
  • Top gun rights priority prospects dim, even in GOP-controlled Washington

    Gun rights activists spent record amounts last year to elect Republicans — but aren’t likely to get their biggest wish, nationwide concealed carry legislation, approved before the 2018 elections. Activists are blaming the Republicans they help put in power — as well as Democrats — for the lack of action on the gun lobby’s number one legislative priority. “The gun rights community does not appreciate the fact that reciprocity languished for so long, and then following two tragic shootings, it seems the first initial response from some in the GOP was, ‘We need additional gun control,’ aka the NICS fix,”...

    President Donald Trump said the FBI probe into whether the Trump Administration colluded with Russia in meddling in the 2016 Presidential election as “an excuse” by Democrats for “losing the election”. Speaking to journalists on the White House's South Lawn Friday morning, President Trump said: “Let’s put it this way, there is absolutely no collusion that has been proven. “When you look at the committees whether its the Senate or the House, everybody walks by, my worst enemies walk out, they say there is no collusion but we’ll continue to look.

    George Orwell would have been the first to admit that by controlling language you can control people's attitudes. The government has been doing that for years with code phrases like "Abortion" (also known as ending the life of a baby) and "Earned Income Tax Credit" (also known as welfare). But now liberals are getting upset that President Trump is ripping several pages from their new-speak lexicon. The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases — including “fetus” and “transgender” — in any official documents being prepared...
  • Oh My: FBI Deputy Chief Andrew McCabe Headed For The Exit?

    McCabe has spent the past year popping up in the news for all the wrong reasons. In February 2016 he was promoted to deputy director and assumed oversight of the Hillary Emailgate investigation — after his wife had received nearly $700,000 from Democratic groups for a failed run for Virginia state senate. This past February he got caught talking to then-chief of staff Reince Priebus about an allegedly bogus Russiagate story in the NYT, a no-no since DOJ investigations are supposed to be independent of politics. His latest news cameo was (apparently) in the infamous text in August 2016 from...

    Updated at 3:15 p.m. ET A grand jury tasked with investigating broad issues of hazing at Penn State has issued a blistering report asserting that leaders at the university were well aware of pervasive misbehavior in the Greek system and failed to take action. Penn State, responding in court, said that the university has "shown an unwavering commitment to promoting safety and accountability" and that alcohol abuse at college is a "national problem," not a university-specific one. The report, made public by the Centre County, Pa., District Attorney's Office, was released after the death of 19-year-old fraternity pledge Timothy Piazza...

    Activist Zephyr Teachout, who ran for governor in 2014 and Congress in 2016; she lost both times, is troubled by Sen. Al Franken’s (D-MN) resignation. Mind you, the Minnesota Democrat has not packed up his bags and left. He said he would resign in the near future. It was one of the most soporific and non-introspective resignation speeches—and it wasn’t just conservatives who noted this. Some journalists noted that Franken never apologized for his actions. True. He also called his accusers liars, which is also true. The man didn’t want to go, possibly because he thought his party affiliation could...
  • DACA Amnesty Chain Migration Would Exceed Four Years of U.S. Births

    The Democrats’ draft Dream Act amnesty would likely add as many chain-migration foreigners to the United States population as are added by the total number of Americans who are born in four years’ time. As House and Senate Republicans, Democrats, the big business lobby, the cheap labor industry, and the open borders lobby have teamed up to push an amnesty for potentially millions of illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the impact the move would have on Americans would be likely unprecedented. Under the current legal immigration system,...

  • Legalizing ‘Dreamers’ would cost $26 billion: CBO - 80,000 more people in ‘chain migration’

    Legalizing 2 million illegal immigrant “Dreamers” would cost the government $25.9 billion over the next decade, as those now-legal people would claim more tax, education and other benefits they haven’t been able to get before, the Congressional Budget Office said Friday. The CBO also said newly legalized Dreamers would sponsor 80,000 more immigrants to enter the country as part of “chain migration.” Immigrant-rights activists have argued that legalizing Dreamers would be a financial boon to the country, but the CBO and the Joint Committee on Taxation suggested otherwise, saying that while they would pay somewhat higher taxes in to the...

    On November 3, 2017, a man entered the private property of a sitting U.S. senator uninvited. He snuck up behind and assaulted the senator with such violence that he broke six ribs and damaged the senator's lungs, leading to pneumonia and severe pain. These injuries prevented the senator from returning to Congress for a crucial debate in which he played a leadership role. If a right-wing assailant had broken the bones of Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer, sending either of them to a pain-filled hospital bed, the outcry from both sides of Congress would have been ear-shattering. The left-wing media...

    In the past few weeks, thanks to some revealing information amid the various investigators of the DC swamp, we have been introduced to some previously unknown people. Names like FBI Agent Peter Strzok; his mistress FBI Attorney Lisa Page; their ideological comrade Asst FBI Director Andrew McCabe; along with DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr; and his wife, Fusion-GPS contract employee Nellie Ohr. These are a few of the recent names that have hit the headlines as a result of ongoing investigations into the politicization of the FBI and DOJ. But there’s one name conspicuously absent, FBI Director of Counterintelligence, Bill Priestap.

    I caught my breath when I heard FBI Director Christopher Wray testify to Congress that there’s been no abuse of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the law under which our intelligence communities electronically spy on possible terrorists and sometimes capture private communications of innocent U.S. citizens. Section 702 and related components expire Dec. 31, and Congress must decide whether to renew them. To see if I’d heard Wray correctly, I searched for a transcript of his testimony. I found that he’d delivered the same line during an Oct. 13 Heritage Foundation speech. Wray claimed, “There’s been...

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin headed to the United Nations in New York Thursday to ask for help fighting violence in Chicago. "I'm hoping to appeal the UN to actually come to Chicago and meet with victims of violence and maybe even possibly help out in terms of peace keeping efforts," Boykin said. Boykin boarded a plane to New York City for a meeting with an Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations. It's a meeting that's been planned for more than a month and stems from disconcerting violence numbers seen this year in Chicago. Violence which...

    Attention, little people! We are on notice to be suitably impressed by the sheer courage of these ladies to don thousand-dollar dresses to virtue-signal their protest of Harassment In Hollywood. Multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE that many major actresses — including presenters and nominees (Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep and Emma Stone are among those nominated)— are planning to wear all-black looks as a symbol of protest against harassment in Hollywood. Sources say that this will start at the Golden Globes on Jan. 7, though it may extend throughout award season. Impressed yet? No word if they plan to boycott the...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Dec 16, 2017 | Gabby Morrongiello
    The number of families arrested at the Southwest border rose dramatically between October and November of this year, according to new data that has immigration experts wondering if previous levels of illegal immigration are destined to return. Numbers released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Friday show immigration officials apprehended just over 7,000 family units — consisting of at least one adult and one child — at the border last month, compared to 4,839 in October. That 45 percent increase accompanied a 26 percent surge in child migrant apprehensions, from 3,168 to 4,000 over the same one-month span. The...

    The families of Americans who have been either hurt or killed by illegal aliens say, “before we worry” about giving amnesty to border-crossers and visa-overstayers, lawmakers should “respect” the victims – “by no fault of their own.” – of illegal alien crime. In a statement this week, the members of Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime (AVIAC) — known as “Angel families” — said Americans should take priority over the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation under the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Action (DACA) program who are lobbying to be given a pathway to U.S. citizenship....
