    Before Election Day 2016 the "intelligentsia" – that self-appointed and self-important class of faux intellectuals, which believes itself superior to the average American and thereby entitled to tell the rest of us what to do, what to think and how to live – considered Donald Trump a joke. Hillary Clinton was, in all but name only, the next President of the United States. The election was a tedious formality. "The Donald" would soon be back hosting a reality TV show, and the status quo would remain intact. The members of the "intelligentsia" awoke the next day to disbelief. The unthinkable...

    Has anyone looked at the mistakes that John Brennan made while serving as CIA Director? He will go down as easily the WORST in history & since getting out, he has become nothing less than a loudmouth, partisan, political hack who cannot be trusted with the secrets to our country!

    Here is Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, speaking to a group of people about his claim that Russian Operatives had gotten into Florida’s Election System ahead of the 2018 Midterms. As he talks, it becomes clear Nelson says, “I assume,” regarding what the Russians actually did, and he looks very startled at the end to find out he is being recorded! . . . .

    Democrat primary voters in Vermont have a handed a turnout-driver for Republicans nationwide by nominating Christine Hallquist, a man who pretends he is a woman (known for the moment as a "transgender woman") for governor.  The reason has nothing to do with voters' bigotry against people who pretend to be the other sex.  Rather, it is all about her (his? zir's?  Hallquist has yet to instruct us on which personal pronouns we are to use) bigotry toward Christians. Deidre Reilly of LifeZette presents the evidence that a couple of days' worth of digging has uncovered: CNN screen grab."And we worry about sharia law!!" Hallquist tweeted...

    In his online appeal for money after being fired this week, disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok credited an unlikely source to vouch for his victim status: The Weekly Standard. At one time a leading conservative magazine, the Standard declared last month that Strzok’s plight was merely an “overwrought tale of bias” and the case against him is “just sound and fury.” The article brushed off Strzok’s actions as “several bad judgment calls” and blasted Congressional Republicans for continuing a criminal investigation into the now-unemployed G-man. Strzok is following only 32 people on his newly-verified Twitter account. Bill Kristol, the...

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Bill Kristol, from the Weekly Standard, went from a leading conservative voice and Obama critic to a Trump hater who worked with Obama to derail the Trump Campaign. Kristol fell so far that he started pushing the Trump – Russia dossier at the same time as John Brennan and the Obama team. Kristol went from leading conservative voice to being the leader of the anti-Trump “conservative” movement in a matter of a few years. Kristol and The Weekly Standard published articles smearing The Gateway Pundit for supporting the Republican Presidential candidate.

    Another person who gave testimony said: "We are going to take the land, even if it means we're going back to the dark ages. This country must be African. We are African." A man wearing a T-shirt of the right-wing Freedom Front Plus party said that his Afrikaner people had been farming in the Western Cape for the past 300 years. "When my forefathers came, they found no-one but the Khoi and the San. My people got what they have in this country not by theft, not by genocide, but by fair means." Some land owners threatened war to defend...
  • Palestinian Congressional Candidate ASSAULTS Jewish Journalist at Political Event [Michigan, MN]

    A journalist was assaulted by a soon-to-be congresswoman while asking her questions at a political rally for U.S. Congressional candidate Ilhan Omar in Minnesota on Saturday. Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian Muslim who won her primary in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District on Tuesday, forcefully grabbed Jewish journalist Laura Loomer and stole her phone when Loomer approached her to ask questions at the rally. In the Middle East, violence against Jews may be tolerable. In America, where Tlaib – running unopposed after her primary win – and is set to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, it is not. In fact,...

    Who will be next? This is undoubtedly the scariest time we have been in since America was founded. We have been here for about a week. Where we are right now makes the Cuban missile crisis or major terrorist attacks, by comparison, look like little more than daily news. One of the reasons I can see it and so many can’t is because I threw out my cable television over 30 years ago. If I want news, I go looking for it from reliable sources. I don’t sit in an easy chair and let some propagandist posing as an anchorman...

    Last week, Republican Troy Balderson struggled to beat Democrat Danny O'Connor in a House special election in suburban Columbus -- an Ohio district the GOP has held for decades and President Trump won by 11 percentage points two years ago. (The race -- still too close to call with a margin of 1,564 votes -- won't be declared until Aug. 24, when all the absentee ballots have been counted.) In March, Republican Rick Saccone lost a special election to Democrat Conor Lamb in Pennsylvania, another district that voted solidly for Trump. Both Ohio and Pennsylvania represent the new coalition...

    Rep. Grace Meng is sponsoring a resolution that would extend the right to vote to U.S. citizens 16 years of age or older. The New York Democrat’s resolution, introduced earlier this month, would repeal the 26th Amendment of the Constitution, which currently states the right to vote for citizens who are 18 years of age or older "shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State." If the resolution is passed, the amendment would instead say the right to vote for citizens who are 16 years of age or older "shall not be denied or...

    It was merely a comment, a reply, not even a full throated post on Twitter.Shannon Bream of FoxNews’ ratings’ dominant prime time line-up had linked a post about a headline of an election related story in Ohio.@ShannonBream: “Well, that’s an interesting headline: 170 Voters in Ohio Race ‘Over 116 Years Old,” World’s Oldest Person is 115.Generating, as you can imagine it would, thousands of replies, I decided to add a simple one. @KMCRadio: “If you oppose voter ID you’re unAmerican.”Simple and to the point.Twitter didn’t seem to think so. The arguments they made in response ran the gamut but the gist...

    The #NeverTrump GOP establishment is pouring money and resources into duping Arizona voters into backing a non-Trump supporting “Republican” in a crucial U.S. Senate race. “Allies of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dove into the middle of a major Senate race Thursday, airing ads to help remake Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) as a border hawk ahead of her August primary with two prominent immigration hard-liners,” wrote Politico in June.
